Caller ID showing wrong name

Caller ID showing wrong name

We got this new phone number about two weeks ago. Each time I call someone the caller ID shows the previous owner's name so my friends and family don't pick up. We are even getting bill collectors calling us all day and into the night. Anyone know how to fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Caller ID appears wrong

Mine is doing the same thing. We just got this phone number three weeks ago and it gives the previous owner's name as the caller ID. Anyone know how to correct this? Bill collectors are calling for her as well.
