Caller ID Setup

For each SIP account, you can set the phone number to display to the terminating party at outbound calls. 

IMPORTANT
When you are using your trial credit, this feature is blocked. To make it available, please top up your account.

To set your caller ID:

  1. In the menu on the left, select Setup.
  2. On the SIP Accounts tab, on the line for the required SIP account, click the Edit button.
    The page for SIP account editing will be displayed. 
  3. In the CALLER ID section, select the default caller type.
    • Caller ID set by Caller - the ID displayed will be based on the configuration made on the softphone. 

    • Always Blocked - the caller ID will always be hidden.

    • Fixed Caller ID - the caller ID will be based on the settings you make in the SIP account:
      - In the Default Caller ID Number field, specify the caller ID to be used for every outgoing call from this SIP account.
      - Optionally, in the Default Caller ID Name field, enter the name you would like to be displayed to the callee.  

NOTE
Sometimes the caller ID name cannot be displayed to the callee due to their mobile provider’s restrictions. This is beyond CommPeak’s responsibility.

          

WARNING
Using fake or invalid phone numbers is prohibited and being thoroughly monitored by CommPeak. Accounts using fraud phone numbers will be blocked.
