Supress outbound Caller ID Name

Supress outbound Caller ID Name

Supress outbound Caller ID Name

I have been searching threads on this. Is it possible to suppress/block the outbound caller ID NAME only but allow the number to be sent? I found the short code "w" but that withheld the name and number and makes the call PRIVATE. I have a PRI I did also try to change the Caller ID Name but that did not work.

RE: Supress outbound Caller ID Name

With a PRI you can only adjust the number the name is configured by the provider.

RE: Supress outbound Caller ID Name

Thanks. I will contact the Telco and see if they offer any options to change or suppress the name.

RE: Supress outbound Caller ID Name

You can send what you want for the PRI by configuring your ARS like this:

Code: XN;
Telephone Number: Nz"Acme Cie"Si"4183212280""

Maybe you could put Private as a name or a space. Sometimes it doesn't work, you have to talk to your provider so that you can send the name/number.


RE: Supress outbound Caller ID Name

only if the PRI is set to DMS100

RE: Supress outbound Caller ID Name

RE: Supress outbound Caller ID Name
