Outgoing caller ID still says "Ooma"

Post by oomauser » Fri Feb 20, 2009 3:14 pm

I've had the system for about 2 weeks now and anytime I make a call, the caller ID information on the other user says "Ooma" - I've checked my profile settings in the lounge and when I click on my number, it says my name as "Name displayed on outbound calls"

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I'd like the people I'm calling to know that I am calling.

Did you port your number? If not, you should check with customer service to see why your name update hasn't gone through. If you have ported your number, it can take a couple of weeks for change to complete.

Yes, you can call customer service and they can change the caller-ID name for you.

Does the change of Caller-ID cost anything?
