    I did a search, but turned up nothing. (I also GOOGLED, but didn't get a proper answer).

    When someone that I don't know calls my HOUSE from their HOUSE, my caller ID shows the name and number. When someone that I don't know calls my EVO from their HOUSE, I only get a number. I realize that it is probably a SPRINT issue, but does anyone know why Caller ID on our wireless phones does not work like our HOME Caller ID? I realize that if someone is stored in your address book, that their name WILL come up. But was curious why we can't get a name from strangers. Believe it, it would prevent me from picking up a lot of cell calls if I knew who it was.

    :)

    I believe it's always been done this way. There are apps in the Market to fill in this functionality, like TrueCaller or Super Caller ID

    I was hoping someone on here might have insight as to why that is. Thanks for the apps tip.

    Not true, ATT will show the name of the caller.

    Sorry Dreamliner, were you implying caller ID on a land line or cell phone?
