Caller Name ID on Iphone

Does anyone know when caller Name ID for Iphone will be coming.   Currently live on Verizon and TMobile iphones, and At&T supports with some phones, but no iphone yet. 

 

This is a huge feature for me, as I use my phone for work, so most of the ppl calling are not in my phonebook.  Would love to see who it is so I can do a better job of screening my calls.

 

info on the service is here:

In case anyone is still checking this, I just discovered that AT&T now offers this for iPhone.  You need to get the AT&T Call Protect app and then subscribe to Call Protect Plus at $3.99 a month (interestingly this is billed through the iTunes Store rather than on my phone bill).  I'm now getting Caller ID with name (advertised as "Enhanced Caller ID") on my iPhone 8+.  AT&T states this will only work in an HD voice capable area, but I think that's most areas with LTE at this point.

Hi there! @demecer  Thanks for posting your questions. Unfortunately Caller Name ID is not available on the iPhone.  At this time we do not have a timeframe for availability of this feature.

 

 

Thanks!

I see that Verizon & T-Mobile now offer the enhanced caller ID from Cequint for the iPhone.  Is AT&T going to be offering it as well?

Any update? All the other carriers are offering on iPhone. Should I switch?

I would also like to know if there's any updates. I just had to give up my Note 7 for the second time and decided to switch to iPhone. I've already ordered my iPhone, and now I find out Caller Name ID is not available on iPhones with AT&T. Verizon and T-Mobile iPhones have Caller Name ID, but not AT&T. What gives?

Clearly, it's a feature that AT&T hasn't implemented yet

 

(Is there really any explanation that would make you happy?)

Clearly you're great at pointing out the obvious, garylapointe. It would be nice to know if AT&T plans to offer this service, because it is very useful, especially if you're interested in screening your calls. The AT&T rep says there is not currently a timeframe for it's availability, but that's not the same as saying it won't happen. I, for one, hope they make it happen like other networks have.

Wow, what an asshat.


cbwinnett obviously just wanted something a little more specific than what the AT&T rep said.  Is that OK with you?

Is there any update on when Caller ID NAME will be available on AT&T for iPhone?  Seems like AT&T is the only one not offering this feature.

AT&T offers name and number display on their landlines, I know because I subscribe to it.  Since AT&T already has access to this name data it shouldn't be too terribly difficult for them to display it on their wireless network as well; they certainly wouldn't have to pay to access the database, since it would sorta be like PAYING THEMSELVES, right? In any event, I would pay for it in a heartbeat if it was offered for my iPhone.
