Calling Name

See who’s calling before you answer the phone.

When you receive a call, the name of the person calling you is shown on your Caller ID display screen.

  1. When you receive a call, wait until your telephone completes the first ringing signal.
  2. The name of the person calling you—in Cooperative records—will automatically appear on your display screen.
  3. If you choose to answer the call, the name will remain on the screen until you or the caller hangs up.

Note:

  • Subscription to Calling Number or Name requires the lease or purchase of a display telephone or an add-on display unit.
  • If the “P” or “Private” appears on your screen, the caller may have blocked the display of their name and/or number by pressing *67 before placing the call. You can choose whether or not to answer the call.
  • If “unknown name,” “unknown number,” “out of area,” or “0” appears, the caller is in an area that does not support Calling Number or Name services.
