FYI: The service will be available at no extra charge to MTS Phone customers who subscribe to Call Display and subscribe to MTS TV Ultimate service.

I've noticed that the length of time you set the message to display for is a bit wonky - it defaults to 5 seconds I think, but it lasts maybe a second and a half and disappears. I actually set it for 12 seconds and then timed it (by calling from my cell phone) - the actual length it stays is somewhere between 6-9 seconds, and it differs with every call.

I wonder what the timer is based on?

never really timed mine, I set it to 10 seconds and it pops up long enough to see it and not be obtrusive.

Call Display Unreliable

I just got off the phone with the MTS Test Centre. The technician confirmed that in some cases the call display doesn't pop up on the TV even though it appears on the phone. He said that he had the same problem at his home and he is on a different switch than I am. He also said they had gotten problem reports from various parts of the city.

I don't know if some lines are reliable and some aren't or if it is completely random. My own testing with my cell phone and watching various calls, about 25% of my calls don't display on the TV. Interestingly, one of the calls that didn't display on the TV but showed up on the phone was a callback from MTS Repair.

Calls that don't display on the TV also don't appear in the Message Log.

Do they show up when watching recorded TV? Perhaps that's an issue?

Yes, it shows up when watching a recorded program - sometimes.

It also works when you are on the phone. I don't know if you have to subscribe to call waiting and call waiting plus for it to work.

We do not subscribe to call waiting. I have seen the TV display a phone number on the screen when the line is in use. Like other people have said I have noticed that call display does not work 100% of the time. I have noticed a few times where the number did not show up.
