Name Display Option and Call Display Question

What is the difference exactly? With name display, do you get to see the numbers that called you or only the names of the people that called you?

Re: Name Display Option and Call Display Question

Caller Display:

 

Displays calling party’s name and telephone number on the receiver’s handset while within the Rogers network.

Names stored in address book will take priority over Name Display.

If you do not have name display and you do not have the contacts saved in your phone address book. And your friend was to call you; you would only see the number you would not see a name associated to the number.

 

Name display:

 

Caller’s name will appear whether it is stored in the address book or not. Meaning if for example, if the pizzeria was to call your wireless number you will actually see the business name and phone number.

 

I hope this helps,

Re: Name Display Option and Call Display Question

I still don't exactly understand the main different between the two. Why is call display 8 dollar add on while name display is only 2 dollars

Re: Name Display Option and Call Display Question

because name display complements call display. its not a standalone feature. you NEED call display before you can add the "name display" complementary add on.

it works just like your bell canada home phone works when the bank or pizzeria call you it says their business name too, makes sense?

This is 100% incorrect. As stated above Name Display is an addon for Call Display and it is not limited to the Rogers/Fido.

Re: Name Display Option and Call Display Question

I am just copy and pasting what rogers.com says below :

 

Name Display is a new service that allows you to see the names of landline callers as well as Rogers Wireless and FIDO callers, even if the person is not in your address book! Rogers Wireless is the first wireless carrier in North America to provide this product!

 

decide yourself cause english is my second language.

Also it states:

 

Name Display must include Call Display and a Name Display Compliant Device to take advantage of this service.

Re: Name Display Option and Call Display Question

its pretty obvious that Name display COMPLIMENTS caller ID display.

lots of us have prior telecommunication background and we know how networks work, when we say you cant have name display without caller id, we mean business. so yes its correct.
