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.
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,
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
name display only works with fido, rogers and land lines thats why its cheaper.
This is 100% incorrect. As stated above Name Display is an addon for Call Display and it is not limited to the Rogers/Fido.
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.
According to Rogers.com Name Display is the described as the following:
Name Display1 is a service that allows you to see the name of incoming callers even if they are not in your address book!
Also it states:
Name Display must include Call Display and a Name Display Compliant Device to take advantage of this service.
hi, i used a GSM unlocked cell phone( samsung) from neweggs website, i had been use rogers plan for 3 years, its include $20 for 200 mins plan and call display for $8, now i check the my rogers website, there is a name display on list, i change my call display to name display, is that make me can see all rogers caller's name on my phone? i didnt take any phones from rogers, i just want to make sure its worked.
