Caller ID

When someone new is calling me, why do I only see the number and the province/state they are calling from, instead of the person's name? Does this happen to all cellphones and is there a way to see the name of the new person calling, besides adding them to my contacts?

It depends on the other caller’s network. If they send out their name, your phone will be able to display the number and name on incoming calls. If they don’t, you will only see their number. You can learn more about it here. https://www.koodomobile.com/en/help/call-display

If you have a Samsung phone, there is intelligent caller ID. The other way you can is if the other carrier offers this feature.
