How to set Caller ID (Call Display Control)

Caller ID is a highly useful feature for figuring out who’s calling you, and more importantly, for branding your business when you make phone calls.

Inbound and outbound Caller ID function a bit differently from each other, so here is how to set up both.

Inbound Caller ID

To set inbound calling to show your business number (so you know it’s a business call and not a personal one), go to the “Numbers & Widgets” page on your MightyCall account.

Click “Call Display Control”.

Then Enable or disable the option to your liking.

Outbound Caller ID

Outbound calling is a bit more involved. To have your company’s name show up when you call someone else, there are mechanisms outside of MightyCall’s control (no voip provider is able to control this alone).

There is a database called CNAM that controls Caller ID for outbound calls. For us, a company called Vitality provides this functionality—but we cannot fully guarantee it will always work, because both you and the person you’re calling need to be registered in the system (through a phone provider) for your company name to appear.

It’s important to note that CNAM is only available for local numbers.

If you’re interested in adding outbound Caller ID to your number (it’s called CNAM or CNAME), fill out this form.

If your number is CNAM eligible (we will let you know if it isn’t), your Caller ID will be ready in about 2 weeks.
