Setting Caller ID Names

It's not possible to set the name that appears on someone's callerID, as this isn't actually transmitted with the phone call at all - instead, every carrier maintains a database of phone numbers and the associated names. Carrier's subscribe to each other's databases, so an updated listing will eventually show up on all carriers. If you would like to set the caller name that appears on a caller ID display, contact support and provide your Tropo phone number along with the name you wish to display. We'll submit these to the carrier databases on your behalf, though it can take weeks or even months for the name to appearing on all carriers...which explains why your friend Dave calls you from his new phone number and shows up as defunct dating hotline instead.
