    Caller ID Name (CNAM) Registration – FAQ’s

    Caller ID Name (CNAM) is the “Caller Name” and is the descriptive text displayed on land line caller ID displays. IntelePeer offers customers the ability to register Caller ID Name (CNAM) at no additional cost.

    The CNAM process must be managed directly with IntelePeer, and the required steps are on the following slide.

    Registered CNAM name can be up to 15 characters (symbols cannot be supported).

    Numeric only entries, entries that are generic, contain profanity or do not appear to be valid company/individual names cannot be accepted.

    IntelePeer can complete CNAM orders in approximately 5-7 business days, however, it can take up to 90 days for other U.S. providers to update their systems.

    CNAM can be registered for local U.S. numbers only (toll free and Canadian numbers are not supported).

    Registered CNAM is only displayed on land lines. Cell phones do NOT support CNAM.

    Important note: the terminating provider (the provider delivering the call to the called party) is responsible for displaying the registered CNAM. IntelePeer may or may not be the terminating provider for the call.

  • 48

    In order to register CNAM, the customer must first download the IntelePeer CNAM Order Form. The customer must complete the required fields which include company name, phone numbers, and the desired name to be associated with each number. The customer should return the completed form to [email protected] Guidelines and limitations are outlined on the form.
