Caller ID displays wrong name associated with my cellphone number

Caller ID displays wrong name associated with my cellphone number

Why can't Comcast fix an issue where the caller ID diplays the WRONG name associated with my cellphone when I call home?  Any other phone carrier or service is displaying correct information but Comcast caller ID is not.  Do I need to contact the FCC about this since this is tied into FCC databases and the frequency of Comcast updating their system info (which is very infrequent I found through other telecommunication experts)?

Re: Caller ID displays wrong name associated with my cellphone number

I had exactly the same issue. I was able to work around it by manually putting my name and cell number into my home phone's internal phone book. Now when I call home from my cell, it displays my name with the number.
