Dumb Question: Are they paying for Caller ID with name? Some phone
companies have two levels of caller id, one is number only, the other
name and number. Rogers cellular makes the name option extra $$$ over
just the number.
Also, some of the 1st caller id phones aren't capable of displaying
name and number Nortel Maestro leaps to mind.
