Caller ID Question

Post by bak » Mon Jan 31, 2011 4:35 pm

TELO and regular phones with caller id name and number display
Call from my cell phone shows "KY CELL and #", simular genaric names from others
Contact list is made up, but does not seem to be used for called id info

Does this only work with the TELO PHONE, or does something need to be done for contact list to be activated for caller ID use?

Are you running Telo in standalone? or landline integration?

In standalone mode, Telo is supposed to dip the contact list you make up; maybe you'd have to wait 5 minutes for the changes to take?

Telo in stand alone, thinking need to log into telco and change some settings, but unsure how to log in and what may need to be changed. Telo installed after modem and router in router port. Tried prefered install between moden and router but did not work.

Check this page out: http://ooma.custhelp.com/app/answers/de ... w/contacts

I think you just need to sync your Telo.
