Re: outgoing does cost.

I fully understand way more than you know. I grew up in corporate advertising and rebranding. Did a rebranding of a divestiing baby bell in the late 80's.

Caller ID w/ Name
All accounts include fully functional Caller ID with both name and number.


There is really nothing being said about which direction. The ambiguity of this tells me standard outgoing POTS style CID. If this is not true, the copy on the website needs to be changed to accurately represent what is actually meant.

Can't wait to see the long awaited "Users Manual". It'll probably read like stereo instructions in some obscure Bisayan dialect.

It really does seem that they provide Caller ID, inbound and outbound, with the way it is worded. My understanding was that if you ported in a number that already had caller ID it would show up on outbound calls.

They do provide caller ID, but no caller ID name. For example if a person called "Bob Builder" call you from 123-456-7890 your caller ID will show

BUILDER BOB
123-456-7890

But with Magicjack and Voipo, it will show in few other ways, such as:
1234567890
123-456-7890

UNKNOWN CALLER
123-456-7890

ANONYMOUS
123-456-7890

in in very rare case STATE NAME or AREA NAME
123-456-7890
etc.

It depends on the service provider for the receiving party. But no name is transmitted by voipo.
