Vonage The information that is in the above link is completely untrue. I do not know where

The information that is in the above link is completely untrue. I do not know where he would get that information. The telephone companies store the name display on their exchange system switches. When the caller places the call, the name is transferred along with the number. He's correct when he says a "P" is sent for Private Caller, and "O" is sent for "Out-of-Area" or Name and Number unknown. Those are the only two encrypted codes on the Caller Id string that is sent using hexadecimal ASCII. The call display boxes and phones decode these 2 codes, however if the name is available, the switch at the telephone company contains the name and send it along with the phone number. You could call someone in California from Canada, and if the Canadian caller had the name sent, the person in California would see it. Some telephone companies will default a city name based on the area code and exchange if there is no name provided. It will then intercept the absence of a name by at least providing the originating city of the call. This is just a bell and whistle.

As far as Vonage goes, I'm not sure where the name would be stored. Perhaps this is why the name feature does not work with Vonage. I know on the POTS system, the name is stored on the switch. The Telephone Adapter is similar to the switch on the POTS system. It would make sense that the name could be stored in the ATA box. It may or may not be easy to replace the name in the box, or maybe Vonage just does not want to be bothered maintaining it. Who knows! I know if you display the contents of the Motorola ATA by going to a web page and using the box's IP Address, you will see Caller Id at the bottom of the screen. Maybe the box only holds a phone number, and is not capable of holding the name. Contacting Motorola or Cisco would be a good place to start if you really want to know for sure. This technology is new. It seems strange that they would not have thought about the Name portion of Caller ID. In the early 1990s I worked at the local phone company in Nova Scotia. I worked on implementing call display with name features on some of our exchanges. During some testing, we would change the name display every few minutes to something different, and place the call. Immediately, no matter who we called, the name would show up. I called my Mom one time and changed the call display to say, "YOUR SON DARKEV". She saw it right away only 2 seconds after I made the change, and she lives in a different city miles away. The information provided by the person in the quoted link is completely wrong. It must be assumptions that he's made.

Yes, I was talking about the PSTN system and how the caller id is stored earlier.
