[asterisk-users] Caller ID Names

Are the phones exposed to the internet (even using NAT)?  If so there is a good chance these calls are not coming through your PBX but are coming in direct from someone, usually scammers.

Polycom has a config option to disable accepting calls from unknown devices.  No idea if Cisco has something similar.

To be sure you could setup a soft phone and see if the caller ID name comes in correctly.

In my dialplan I have the following line.

same => n,Set(CALLERID(name)=Support)

I am expecting this to always set the caller id name to ‘Support’  - however, we are getting calls come in as “Anonymous” with the number as something like “unknown at unknown”

We’re using Cisco 7945 phones – I possibly wonder if they are displaying this rather than asterisk not changing it?

Anyone had similar experiences before?
