Troubleshoot Call Display on your home phone
Identify why Call Display isn’t working
Situations where Call Display won't work
- Private or anonymous number: This means the caller has used Per Call Blocking to block the display of their name and number.
- Unknown region: The region your caller is dialling from may not support Call Display.
- Private name with number displayed: The caller may have an unpublished number or may have requested the blocking of their name. With Caller Reveal you can display these private numbers.
- Calls from cellular phone:
Calls from cellular phone may only display the province and phone number.
If you have any other difficulties using Call Display, try the steps below:
- On your Home Phone bill, ensure Call Display is listed and included as a feature. Log in to your account to view your bill
- Try unplugging and replugging the power adapter into both the display device and the electrical outlet
- If your display device requires batteries, try replacing them

Remove any additional equipment you may have attached to your phone line, such as an answering machine or other telephones.

If the problem appears to be with your phone, consider getting it checked where you purchased it.
