name on caller ID


Userlevel 5
This idea have been posted in the past years but with LTE and the new gen system it's doable. "srlawren" mentioned in another post that Fido (Koodo direct compétition) offer a feature via the self-serve where the client can customize the infos (name or number) to be displayed on "outgoing" calls.

Now it's ONLY the cell number, if Fido can offer "subscriber custom caller ID" why can't KOODO!!! This is a recurring question/idea on this forum maybe someone should take note of what the people are asking....

No need to submit a new idea if it's already out there... just upvote that one. That said, persistent rumors say it's coming to Koodo as well. But then again rumors are just that, rumors...

Edit; Oops, I see someone suggested you posted this an idea. It's all good 🙂

Well, demand for this feature would have to be significantly higher to be considered. Once it does and becomes available I will change mine to Winston Wolfe. 🙂

Well, demand for this feature would have to be significantly higher to be considered. Once it do...Is it going to say Jeffrey Katz next to Winston Wolfe?

I oppose  any proposal that would allow Koodo users to "customize" their cell phone number under Caller ID if that includes changing the real mobile number to a fake one.  I love the idea that you could use a nickname instead of your formal name

This is what he is asking for

I oppose  any proposal that would allow Koodo users to "customize" their cell phone number u...Putting name on your number might work for the first time you call someone. If the receiver saves your number, that saved name will show. It might be fun, but realistically not useful in the long run.

I oppose  any proposal that would allow Koodo users to "customize" their cell phone number u...To "customize" your phone number on Fido, you have to change your phone number completely, the same as Koodo. You can use VOIP apps if you want to spoof your phone number.

I oppose  any proposal that would allow Koodo users to "customize" their cell phone number u...No thanks.  I responded to the posts here, not there.  If the Fido caller ID thing was described incorrectly here, so be it. Perhaps the OP might want to clarify his proposal.   Up to him, not me.

I oppose  any proposal that would allow Koodo users to "customize" their cell phone number u...@Elinor:  you can only change your outbound caller ID *name* with Fido, not the number.  I did this a few months ago and can confirm.
