    I'm on rogers and I haven't had this problem..
    but come to think of it, I don't think anyone who isn't in my contacts has called me yet
    so I don't know
    I'll get back to you

    I am with Rogers on a 3 year contract with Caller ID, and have the same issue of caller name not showing up (just the number). Whenever someone calls, I get 'Unknown' for the caller name.

    The iPhone also didn't support name display... It's paradoxical why smartphones do not support this basic network feature.

    ya now that I think about it your right!! my Iphone was the same way no name display..

    But I know that I have seen an app for the Androids that would do a whitepages lookup when someone called based on their number and give you their name.. I have been looking for the app but I can't remeber the name....

    All Canadian cell phone companies rip us off. Its almost cheaper to get a US cell with a long distance package then just have a Canadian phone.

    This is true, which is frustrating for sure. But there has to be an app.

    I have the HTC Magic with Rogers and I can't get network caller ID either. It worked on my old Nokia N95 but with the Magic i can only get caller ID if the phone number is in the contacts list.

    Guess I'll call Rogers and unsubscribe to network caller id.

    In my house.
    I just tested it (Rogers, paying for call display, HTC Magic) and it worked fine. I called my Magic from my work phone and it displayed the name exactly as it appears in my contacts.

    Perhaps it's a setting somewhere in your Contacts on the Magic?

    From what I understand, the Magic wont show Caller NAME for ppl not in you address book since it doesn't support this feature. You'll only see names when you have it in your contacts.

    I saw an app on the Market (Called CallerID I think) that will do a reverse lookup for each call and display name and some more infos but it was US only ... Maybe it'll come to Canada ...

    Very true. If you guys in America think you're having it bad, have a look at the situation in Canada. Even worse.

    Caller ID works but only number. Name display I called Rogers and tech support tried it and confirmed it does not work. Said maybe on next update but also said Iphone still doesn't work.
    Also if you send a text message, although receive and read notifications are set to notify, no notifications are given. Therefore never know if other person ever received your text message. This was also confirmed by text support.

    Rogers HTC Magic running E911 w/Sense.

    Not getting name display either, unless they are in my phone contacts.

    But I am seeing strange behavior even when I have the number in my phone contacts.

    It seems phone numbers set to "work" do not show the contact name. still shows unknown caller. Numbers set to mobile, or home work fine though.

    Anyone else seeing that?

    In case anyone else was experiencing the same as me above. It wasn't numbers set to "work" as I had though. Rather it was that I had just the company field filled out and not the name field for my contacts. When scrolling through contacts you see the company name, but when looking at call history or the caller ID on incoming calls it only takes the name field which I had left blank, hence unkown caller.
