Caller ID information (when available), also known as CLI, refers to what the person receiving a call sees when somebody from their country calls them. For example, if you are located in Atlanta, but call someone in Washington, the caller ID, is the number the person receiving the call sees. Below we discuss the following types of Caller ID and restrictions;
- Outbound Caller ID
- Caller ID for Incoming Calls
- Local Caller ID (CLI) international compatibility
- Calls from strange numbers and what they mean
- International Caller ID Restrictions
Outbound Caller ID?
Outbound Caller ID is the phone number displayed on the call recipient device (desk phone, Softphone, and mobile apps) when you make a call.
Caller ID for Incoming Calls
Inbound “Caller ID” is displayed when receiving a call.
Local Caller ID (CLI) international compatibility
Local Caller ID, also known as CLI is the Caller ID when making in-country calls. Standard E.164 formatted caller IDs may not be rendered properly if a call is made across international borders. AVOXI products provide local Caller ID (CLI) for calls made to European countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Italy, and the United States, Canada. This can however not be guaranteed and numbers may not be delivered properly with international calls are placed.
