As soon as I turned on facilityenable=yes, outbound name display started to
work for me.

Probably correct, as that's what I'm sending now:

I just checked dialing out of and back into my system, and the Facility IE
comes back in the SETUP message, but the Display IE does not.

Did you end up adding name records to the LIDB?

For our purposes name display was a nice to have, so we didn't go down this

Anyway -- again -- what did you do to get it working on Telus' network?

To the best of my knowledge, we're connected to a 5ESS running NI-2.

Here's the relevant zapata bits I use:

facilityenable = yes

Hope that helps.
