The iPhone 3.1 firmware update brought many new changes and updates to the iPhone but one of those changes was finally supporting Name Display.
Many carrier plans include (some don’t!) features such as Caller Display and Name Display but what many people do not realize is that those two features are not the same.
To summarize, Caller Display displays an incoming caller’s phone number while Name Display shows that caller’s name that they have on their account. This will occur even if the person who is calling is not in your iPhone contact list.
Well, effective November 3, 2009, Fido will be updating their $10 iPhone Value Pack to include Name Display. New customers of the value pack will have the feature enabled right away but existing customers will have to call Fido and make the switch to the new value pack (same price).
