Call Display (incoming calls)
Call Display is included in Fongo Mobile. The name and phone number will appear on your smartphone when there is an incoming call.
Caller ID (outgoing calls)
Fongo Mobile sends both your phone number and name to the recipient. The name sent by default is the name on your account (input during sign up).
*Not all providers support name display, even if they advertise caller ID/call display.
Change Your Outgoing Caller ID Name
To change your Caller ID settings, tap the Account tile. Navigate to Settings and then Show My Caller ID. Select ON or OFF.
When Show My Caller ID is set to OFF, and you call a number or contact, the other party will see your caller ID as "Anonymous".
When Show My Caller ID is set to ON and you call a number or contact, the other party will see your Fongo phone number. If your friends have created a contact entry for you in their Contacts list, they will see the name they set up for you.
Users who have purchased 'Remove Ads' have an additional setting called Caller ID
After purchasing the "Remove Ads" add-on, you can customize the outgoing Caller ID name. Simply enter your settings within the app, then under the "Phone Service section, you will see "Caller ID". Type anything you want in the space beside "Caller ID" and ensure "Show My Caller ID" is set to ON.
Note: You cannot hide your Caller ID on Fongo World Edition.
