hi...
ever since i changed over to orcon, my caller ID hasn't worked.
I've been emailing them back and forth close to a month now, they've reset my port couple of times and gave me some BS solutions and excuses.
their last email goes we are aware of this issue and our network engineers are working on it bla bla bla bla bla...

first time i heard about the uniden thing... cause i also have a uniden phone..

This is the email that I received



Dear


Thank you for your email regarding caller ID. From your email I understand that caller ID is not working for you at the moment.

Caller ID is turned on on all Orcon voice connections by default.

This is a known issue that we are currently working on resolving. At this point we do not have an ETA. However this is top priority for us and we will have it fixed as soon as possible.


Kindest Regards,



Honestly, even this is a priority problem, it should mentioned on their system blog to ensure everybody knows on that???

This problem has been on our system status page since it was diagnosed and replicated.

So I take it you guys became aware of this issue today.

Because I've been checking the System's Status page since I realised my caller ID was not working (since i changed over to orcon a month ago)
I just saw the caller ID issue post after I read your reply. 
I last checked the system's status page the day before yesterday and there was nothing about caller ID issues.

I actually had email arguments with your support about not being clear with their customers, and that if they knew about this issue they should put it up on the systems status page to let people know...

I was only told you guys are aware of this issue few days ago and that's after I sent a sort of angry email after being mucked around for 3 weeks...

I can show you my emails and orcon's emails if you like... totally unprofessional...

Hi Duncan

Thanks for the information.

This is exactly why this issue has taken a while to correctly diagnose - some people have caller ID working the whole time, others have it working intermittently, and still others do not have caller ID working at all. Obviously if it was a network wide issue then it would have been much easier to diagnose.

Should we be reporting this issue to Orcon or is it being worked on for everyone with the service?
