[Amportal-users] Caller ID issues

If your provider will let you set CallerID then FreePBX will do what
you want (set the CID to that of the inbound caller) for you
automatically if you just add '# ’ to the call group (eg #918885555555). The problem is that on
analog lines, many PRI lines by default, and many VoIP providers they
will not let you (or in the case of analog it’s not possible to) set
CallerID at all because of the potential liability they would have
should you use that ability to commit some sort of fraud. So while
FreePBX may be setting the CID on the outbound call, that information
never actually leaves the system and CID is actually set by your
upstream provider.

http://www.vitelity.com/ is one provider I’ve worked with that will let
you set CID. So will http://www.voipjet.com and (I’m told)
http://www.teliax.com

Hope this helps.

I am having the same issue. Anybody know how to do this?

I don’t think that’s what I mean. What I WANT to happen is
that I want
the
CID of the Caller (whoever that might be), forwarded on to the cell
phone.
Now that I’m thinking about it, I don’t know that thise even makes
sense
as the caller is actually the Ring Group.

Is there a better way to to call forwarding out of the
system?[/quote]

Oh, and this does, BTW, have to be done in conjuction with what Michael
suggested where you apply callerID info to each extension manually
rather than on a trunk. This is because even though FreePBX will
automatically set CID for the outbound call (to your cell phone) to that
of the inbound call (to the call group) if the trunk the call goes out
on has CallerID info set (anything other than blank) then the trunk’s
CallerID info will subsequently overwrite the inbound call’s CID. So in
order to leave the trunk’s callerID blank and still have CID work on
normal handset-originated calls you will need to go into each individual
extension and manually set CID to whatever you want to use.

I’m hoping that once we get admin groups working (where you can assign
an extension to a logical group and then apply policies such as outbound
routing, time conditions, etc to the group) we’ll also be able to set
CID based on group but that is still someday off in the future.
