We should be able to customize the names of callers instead of seeing "Cell Phone" on the caller ID. This is a standard feature with some other VOIP companies.

Thanks for the suggestion! This is an enhancement that we do have planned.

Can't wait! Custom Caller ID will be a very welcomed feature.

I'd like to add my vote for this one! I had this feature with my last two VoIP providers and loved it.

+1 vote for me.

I came out here to suggest this very feature. More often than not, I don't get useful caller ID info from incoming calls. Even the people I get caller ID from, it is often wrong (husband's name on wife's cell phone), misleading (telemarketers), generic ("wireless caller"), or just cryptic. I'd love to assign friendlier names (or funny names) to many of them. I can program some of my phones to do this, but it is a pain to do. Plus, if this is done down at the Ooma level, these names can carry over to my inbox, block list, call log, etc.

I had custom caller ID with my last VoIP provider. My neighbor across the street didn't know this. One day when she was at my house I went and setup a custom caller ID for her cell phone with the name "Crazy Lady." I asked her to call my house from her cell phone, and she busted out laughing when she saw the caller ID. :-)
