Can anyone confirm whether or not TELUS mobility offers OUTBOUND Caller ID name display?

I know its been discussed on here before but I recently switched from Rogers after reading that they finally offer it for INBOUND calls. Unfortunately I assumed this meant they would have also implemented it for outbound calls but since switching people haven't been seeing my name.

No they don't it will only pass on 10 digit MDN for outbound calls...I think only business customers are able to customize outbound name.

TELUS Call Display+ only identifies incoming calls. I can confirm that any calls you make will not show your name.

Thanks for confirming. I honestly can’t believe that Telus can’t impliment such a basic feature that Rogers has had for years. By refusing to do it they are acually improving the services of the competition because it’s Rogers customers who benifit from getting their calls answered because a name shows up.

No problem. It looks like only Rogers and Fido support that feature. It's super useful because people are far more likely to call you back if they recognize your name (or even see that you're an individual and not a business or telemarketer calling them). I'm hopeful that TELUS will eventually add that feature one day. I don't think they had the Call Display+ feature a couple of years ago.

 

EDIT: Judging by some posts on Howard Forums, it looks like the Call Display+ feature went online just last year.

The more people that "like" this suggestion, the more likely Telus with consider it.

 

Thank You
