I currently have an OOMA Core System. I do not have Premier. I currently have caller id with name. I have one of the grandfathered units that have no annual taxes.

My question is this. If I upgrade to a Telo through OOMA, will I continue to have caller id with name? or will I lose the name and just see the number?

With the Telo, I just add the number to my contact list on-line and you can choose to display any caller ID name you like, within the limited number characters. My wife has a rather nosy friend who calls several times a day, including usually at dinner time. I have the caller ID and talking Panasonic phones showing / saying "Cindy Again". My non-technical wife is not amused, but she doesn't know that I can do that!

Thanks WJBertrand. I can think of some creative names for my callers too :)
However, I want to know if true Caller ID + Name will still work with the Telo because I have Core now, which works.

Sorry, might depend on the phone? Ours show both the number and the name.

My phone definitely supports it. But, Will OOMA honor the CNAME on the Telo because I already get it with Core on the Hub/Scout. Normally Telo only supports the name only with Premier.
