Call Display

Call Display lets you see who is calling before you answer the phone. When your telephone rings, the name and number of the person calling is displayed.

  • If the person calling has an unpublished number or has blocked the display of their name and number, "Private Name" and "Private Number" will appear on your call display screen. 
  • Calls originating from payphones or multi-party phone lines typically display as "Unknown Number".

If Call Display is not working:

  1. Make sure you have subscribed to the Call Display feature. To subscribe to this service visit My Account.
  2. If your phone uses batteries, ensure that the batteries are inserted properly and are not depleted.
  3. If "Long distance" is showing in your display on particular incoming calls, this indicates a long distance provider other than Bell Aliant.
