    Not for me. I just tested it. However, I'm on a corp plan so it might never work for me and I'm not the best person to test it. When I was with Rogers on a corp plan, outbound name display never worked so it might be ineligible for corp clients on Telus too.

    Name Call Display - Finally?

    If you are talking about your address book then that is inbound/incoming calls.

    Telus has outbound call display...it's working. I see everyone's name but some people's name show up as "Anonymous" - and I am referring to everyone not in my address book.

    I know the difference between inbound and outbound call display.

    Name display allows you to see who is calling even if they are not in your address book.

    It's working on my Corp plan and all our koodo lines.

    I find it annoying to see "Anonymous" because I would rather see the number for clients who are not in my contact list so I know what area I am getting the call from at all times or what the number is if I have been in touch with that person recently.

    So when Telus (and Koodo) subscribers call you, you always see their name (or "Anonymous") when they are not in your address book?

    I have Koodo prepaid but don't think this is working yet.

    Most non-address book calls I see names, some show/many up as anonymous (depending on how many calls I get in a day, sorry when I am busy at work, I don't continuously ask people what network they are with...as none of us have time to discuss that at that.

    I think anonymous is random for non-address book calls.

    Name Call Display - Finally?

    Well I'm a Telus customer and I tested this. Inbound name display works perfectly fine (I see names of everyone calling me who are not stored in my contacts...none were Telus customers yet though). I then called a landline from my Telus phone (corp account) to test outbound name display but only my number shows up on the landline's caller ID (my name does not appear).

    Outbound does not send a name currently by my testing.

    I have a Telus PRI line I can run in debug mode to see all the details sent from the carrier.
    Tested a few Telus phones on different accounts, none send any name from the network.

    I can send any name I want from my VOIP line and it shows up in the Q.931 setup frame "NA Display" message data.

    None of the calls from Telus mobile phones included a name, only numbers are sent by the carrier. Any name display is a match from the number to a speed dial entry in the system

    It's about time a service as expensive as a cellphone comes with a feature invented in 90s. Now lets see them leave Koodo and Public Mobile customers out to dry for another 5 years. FYI Android users might need to disable "CallerID By google" to get this to work, which is a name lookup feature instead of a name "reading" feature from call data.

    Has anyone testing outgoing name ID? Would be interesting to see what name they are using for that if there's a family plan with multiple users.

    I got a call the other day that wasn't in my contacts and it came through with the name!! Downside is that it only shows the number and the province when I looked back in my call log on my BlackBerry Priv. So it's only good if I see the call coming in; doesn't help for missed calls.

    This is gonna be a factor for me, moving to Koodo if Public Mobile doesn't get Name Display.

    EDIT: Incoming name display working on public mobile!

    I would think they'd have to implement a system in advance that allows people to make sure the name on the account is correct. I don't think it's a major issue, but I personally wouldn't want new data to start being sent from my phone without my consent. People's name could be spelled wrong, or people using a phone that is under their parent's name, etc.

    Bellus have been operating under the assumption that their name isn't being transmitted from their cellphone for 20 years, I think at the very least sending a notice would be in order to avoid problems.

    Unlike Rogers telus doesn't let you change the outbound caller ID name. At least I haven't been able to, which is disappointing.
