Mysterious Caller ID Name

Post by bluechalk » Wed Dec 07, 2011 9:26 am

Some of my incoming calls show a mysterious entry in my My Ooma logs for the Caller ID Name. It shows the letter V followed by lots of digits, for example V1207113809004179527. It looks like the digits begin with the date and time of the call (12/07, 11:38 in this example). What are the other digits? And what does in mean when they show up in my logs?

I must be missing something. I don't see anything on that site about Caller ID Name.

Maybe this link will better explain what's happening?
