Steps to Enable Caller ID & Spam Protection on Android

In the future, people will be able to access unlimited amounts of data at any time. It’s sometimes very important that you have quick access to important information in both your work and personal lives. An example of this is how caller ID came to be and how it is used today.

What is Caller ID?

Caller ID is a telephone feature that displays a caller’s phone number on the recipient’s phone device before the call is answered. The phone number, location, and associated billing or subscriber name are shown on the handset’s display or a separate caller ID box attached to the phone. Caller ID works in two different phases. Here’s how caller ID works.

Number only

The Single Data Message Format (SDMF) is used, and the displayed information only includes the caller’s phone number and the date and time of the call.

Number and name

Multiple Data Message Format (MDMF) is sent, and the directory name is added to the displayed data.
