Thread: Name Display

  1. #1
    Default Name Display
    Does anyone know if Name display is supported by iphone?
    I subscribe to the service from my cellular provider (Rogers in Canada), but all incoming calls seem to only show the number - No names are displayed???

    I'm unsure what you mean exactly by 'name display', but allow me to explain how it works for me and my firends.

    When someone calls, their phone number is displayed. If that phone number is associated to someone in your phonebook, then their name and any attached image of them is displayed instead.

    So if someone I don't know calls me, I see a number. If my sister calls, I see a picture of her and her name (since I have a picture of her in my address book card for her).

    I think what is being asked is for Caller ID, like you would have on a landline phone. None of the cell phones that I've had in the past ever offered this, all they would show is the phone number calling, unless the number was in their phone book, then it would resolve into a name.

    Here is the problem for me... I have iphone 1.1.4 and i am using my sim card from Taiwan.
    When i had my sim card in my Sonyericsson S700, I get caller ID. Meaning when my sister calls, it displays sister's information along with her name and picture. When someone else calls (that i dont have a record in my phonebook) then i just get the telephone number.

    HOWEVER!!!

    On my iphone, i have a phonebook list of names plus their phone number that i imported from my SIM card. I also have manually typed in names and phone numbers of other ppl that wasnt in my SIM card earlier.

    YET

    iphone just displays the telephone number and doesnt display any other information and i have to GUESS who this person is..

    THAT creates a major problem for me.

    Can someone help me with this? Did i forget to download something from installer? Or maybe i need to activate something on the phone :S

    This is a problem that non-american users face.
    Its fixed by installing AppSuport Patch (1.1.4) and Region Patch (1.1.4) in Tweeks (1.1.4)

    Hope it helps
