I think VF Caller ID cant manage to identify international numbers.

 

A few weeks ago my sister in England called and the Caller ID showed up a local number.

 

I thought at the time that's a bit odd. 

 

But now it's just happened again.

 

This time my brother (England). But the number came up as 09-2838677.

 

Has this happened to anyone else?

 

Can VF offer any sort of explanation? I wont ring VF, do not have the time to be on hold today.

 

But maybe a VF person will see this some time over the next week or few and check it out.

Vodafone NZ only display the CLI that is passed to them from the A party network this is 110% not a Vodafone NZ issue

Are they with the same provider? It sounds like a classic case of a provider having their own (or upstream) interconnect which is locally based in NZ maybe on a PRI connection that's not passing through the correct CID so displays the local NZ number.

As above A party not sending true CLI due to the way it's routed B party (VFNZ) can add zero value

@sbiddle , I think they are both with British Telecom. Not actually sure though, but will find out.

 

 

 

Cheers @linux. Hopefully it's not like my last VF issue which was 110% not VF, but was.
