I have a trucking distribution company. each truck has a cell phone in it. each of those cell phones are forwarded to a specific DID in my freepbx system and will always forward to the same DID. each cell phone has that one DID only that it will always forward to.
I need to setup to where when each cell phone is called (which is forwarded to its DID, so would be the same as calling the DID directly)…
my phones/softphones shows the name of a truck thats assigned to each DID and also the caller id of the actual caller.
so basically im “labeling” each DID in my system with a name such as “Truck 121”
so when person A calls truck 121’s cell phone…the phones/softphones at the office will ring and say “Truck 121” and have person A’s caller id number
Caller ID Name prefixes are settable in Inbound Routes, just create a route for each DID and set a corresponding prefix for each.
thanks for quick answer. I did do that as a test in the inbound route for a DID. in the CID name prefix i put truck121:
that route is set to come to my extension which rings zoiper installed on my cell.
the incoming call to that DID just shows the name of my company, which i really dont even know where its getting that from. but main thing is truck121 is not on there while its ringing.
Share a call trace via pastebin, from that we can determine if the prefix is being set and where the CID you see on Zoiper is coming from. Providing Great Debug - Support Services - Documentation
