Why do my calls to people show as Out of Area?

Got something else to discuss that is not covered by the previous forums? Post it here!

These days so many phones take over CID and use their own phonebook to identify calls, that I hadn't even noticed this, but mine also apparently shows some meaningless city reference or something. I suppose I should call and see if Ooma can fix up my CID for people who don't put my number in their phonebook.

For example, my cell phone shows "Home" when someone calls me from my home/Ooma number. Same at work, it shows my wife's name since that is what I have typed into our system there.
