Fongo home phone and caller id

Hey, sorry if this is the wrong forum. I have been reading up on Fongo and it seems great, but I have read people saying that when they get a phone call it won't show the callers name. Is that still a problem or has that been fixed recently. Also, is there anything else I should know about Fongo (good or bad). TIA.

I used Fongo for years but finally gave up on it because it became extremely unreliable. You have to open the app at least once an hour, or else it goes to “sleep” and when you have an incoming call, instead of your phone ringing, you get a notification of a missed call. And yes I had background app refresh enabled and all my settings right. So if you expect to use your phone for receiving calls you need to answer right away, I’d steer clear of Fongo.

I should have been more clear. I meant Fongo hone phone. Sorry about that.

Caller id has been working for me the last while.
