How to have Caller ID showing up as my name?

Hello All,

Does anyone know how to configure Asterisk to show my name instead of my phone number? Please advice. Thanks.


Have a look at ${CALLERID(name)}.


exten => _X.,1,Set(CALLERID(name)=Me)
exten => _X.,n,Dial(SIP/${exten})

This should display the name of the caller on your phone.


You can also set this in sip.conf

callerid="John Doe" <500>
