    Unhappy Name display // Full Caller ID doesn't work (Fido canada)
    Hi, i am using my iPhone in canada with FIDO wireless.

    I have subscribe to name display caller id.

    I would be supossed to see the name of any incomming call if the number is not in my contacts.

    The phone receive the number info, so if one of my contacts is calling i will see the name i entered in my iPhone.

    But for others, i will only see the phone number......

    I have proofs thats the service as relly been activated because on my old cell phone i always see the name of the caller on any incomming call.


    The iphone don't seems to take that information..... :S


    Thank's for your help !!

    name display will not work on your iphone.
    It does not work with a lot of the phones that are not sold through fido;
    it didn't work on my sony ericsson that I had before on fido because it was one that I bought unlocked as opposed to through the fido dealer.

    Does anyone have a solution for this? I would very much love to have my NAME DISPLAY actually work properly.

    Does this work for US Members?

    Do any canadians with FIDO or ROGERS (they own fido) have name display working? If so what are your settings what have you done etc.

    It'll have to when July 11th comes around. Can't charge for a feature that won't work.
