Caller ID when Forking to Cell Phone

I like the fix in 3.3. that allows you to call into pbx with cell phone to place an outbound call while carrying the caller ID of the PBX instead of my cellphone. I noticed to now when calls are forked to my cell phone, it also carriers the caller ID of the PBX.

 

Is there a way to change this so when forking incoming calls to cellphone, I can actually see who is calling me instead of the PBX?

Well, from the PBX point of view if should use the PBX extension caller-ID when you cann from your cell phone into the system and place an outbound call. And when the PBX forks a call to the cell phone, the cell phone should see the original caller-ID.

 

Especially the latter case is difficult with most service providers. Usually the serviec providers will not allow the PBX to present any other caller-ID than the caller-ID of the subscriber.

 

The PBX uses the prorietary header "Related-Call-ID" to indicate that the use of a foreign Caller-ID is valid and the carrier can present the Caller-ID of the original call.
