Caller ID

A feature that displays the name and/or number of the calling party on the phone's display when an incoming call is received. Virtually all digital phones - as well as many analog phones - have this capability. While typically only the number is received, most phones will display the name, if the number matches an entry in the phone's built-in phone book.
