A Caller ID issue could be caused by several factors. This section explores the possibility that the issue could be located at the telco or by noise on the lines.
Connect an analog phone to the demarcation point. In telephony, the demarcation point is the point at which the telephone company network ends and connects with the wiring at the customer premises.
Place a call — using another line or mobile phone — from the PSTN to the analog phone connected at the demarcation point and check if the phone displays Caller ID. If the Caller ID information is not being shown by the phone, please contact your telco and ask them how to enable this feature.
Otherwise, please disconnect the phone and plug it to the line that is directly connected or closest to your Asterisk server and repeat the test call.
