Telus call display

Telus is finally offering outbound call display name you can go onto your telus account and add it on subscriptions for $0 but only problem is “ Only the account holder’s full billing name will be used for all numbers on the same account”

So if you have 4 lines only 1 name will be displayed for all 4 lines which is stupid. Fido and rogers you can set ur outbound name display

Thanks, I'll look into this.
I've got 4 lines on my account, just wondering if I can turn the feature on for just the single line.

Makes no sense at all. We should find a way to let Telus know how dumb this really is.

Gosh, it's sad how much we pay for cell phone service and get next to nothing for it. The only reason I am jumping on this is because I know Telus might take it away in the future or require a subscription. You can't even get basic call forwarding with Telus. Everything is monetized

I got the $45/25gb winback deal for 4 lines. So $30 each before taxes

Koodo has it available too.
VoLTE required for the feature for work.
FAQ - Outbound Calling Name Display for mobile devices

Telus FAQ

Neither FAQ makes it clear that the feature is a line-specific add-on - enabling OCND on one line of an account doesn't affect other lines.
When enabled only the account holder's name will be displayed (in all CAPS).
