Caller ID info not displaying correctly

Caller ID info not displaying correctly

When I call my home with my Verizon cell phone, caller id shows only "Cell Phone, FL xxx-xxx-xxxx on my tv or home phones.  Not my name .  I have a new cell number and called Verizon about how it should display and they have it as my name and number.  I have tried calling different land lines and it shows up correctly.  Verizon says it is a xfinity problem that they dont have my number in some kind of database to display my name.  Other landlines I call (att) display my name.  I need this corrected as my 87yr old mother will not answer the phone if she does not know the name of the caller.

This was on another post:


SOLUTION TO CORRECT CALLER ID SHOWS WRONG NAME. You the  person with the wrong name showing on your caller ID must call  NEUSTAR 1-800-682-7487 Comcast's caller ID Database. If a live person answers say you want to place a report for  incorrect ID. If an automated recording is received press #5. You will receive the automated system  you will leave  a voice mail for the phone number showing the incorrect name example 1-888-888-0000 give the correct name including spelling for the correct caller ID name. The correct name will appear 24 to 72 hours later.
