    Question Caller NameID now free for all Verizon customers?

    Started seeing Caller Name (displays CNAM) for incoming calls on April 29, 2021.

    This must have been an error on Verizon‘s part, this no longer works.

    I have just started to get (free?) Caller ID Name on my android phone, but I am sure it is coming from Google, not Verizon.

    After my call is done, I get this popup from Google, asking if the name they displayed for the call is correct or not.

    If they really wanted to eliminate the spam/robo callers, they should include it but not seeing it on my iphone.

    Here is a quick screen shot, including the pop-up from Google asking if the name is correct. I assume once this is past beta test, that this pop-up for feedback will disappear.

    Is that your phone or Google voice??

    I noticed on Google voice if does know the number to certain business .

    As a test I called att landline tech support (since it was not saved as a contact in my phone) 800 288 2020 . And when I made the call on my Google voice line it auto displayed AT&T.

    I would have tested fios or vzw but those numbers are saved in my contacts.

    My phone.

    Nothing at all to do with Google Voice. I don't even have it installed.

    Also, these are new-to-me phone numbers. So, they are not at all in my Contacts.

    When I call 800 288 2020 from my Samsung device, nothing shows up on the caller id display. But when I call from Google voice it says ATT . Again this number is not stored in my contacts.

    This is what I get when I call that number. I have the Android Phone app, v 65.0.370544174.

    I am a VZW customer so, there is nothing for ATT in my contacts.
