Has anyone gotten the Name Display feature to work on their phone? Currently if someone calls from a number not in my contacts list, it only displays the phone number (Call display) my understanding of Name display is that it will list the name and number if someone (who is NOT in my contact list) calls me ...1.1.2FW w/ 4.02.13_G Baseband.

Some people with Rogers have described the same problem. What version of firmware do you have?Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

And not to be dumb, but you're sure you're subscribed to Name Display? Unfortunately Rogers won't investigate any problems for you. Not because its an iPhone, just because they don't support phones they don't sell.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

I used to have name display on my old phone....as soon as I switched to the iPhone it stopped working which makes me believe it's a limitation on the phone.

Same here. I am on Fido and subscribe to name display as well (I have the $18 value pack to take advantage of 4 months of unlimited EDGE). Prior to the iPhone, I used to get names displayed whenever someone called who wasn't in my phonebook (I was using a Nokia 8801). Since switching over to the iPhone, nothing.15.4" 2.8GHz Unibody MacBook Pro

do not use iSim to import contact info from your sim card into your iphone, it won't work properly. I had to use Simport instead to import all my contacts into the iphone, now the name display works correctly !!! currently on winpwn'd iphone v1.1.4 with Rogers, hope this helps !

I looked into this and talked to Rogers iPhone tech support person and found out that the iPhone does NOT support Name display. This covers people that are not already in your iPhone Phonebook.
He also went on to tell me that the iPhone has to be modified to enable this function which Apple will not let them do.
BTW if you want to add name display its an extra $2 per month.
Nice - No MMS or Name Display.

is name display available through ATT? The only thing cool i noticed here is that when a number not in your contacts calls, iphone knows where the area code originates from.If I helped you out in any way, hit the Thanks Button.
