    Is it possible to seeing names instead numbers from external calls?
    What should I do?

    The easiest way to do this is just to create a local directory of all your contacts on the phone you are using.
    The other option is to probably modify the incoming call context and include a callerID lookup for names (callerID(NAME)). This will not work if the external provider is not sending names.

    I do not know if there is an easier way, let's see what other members have to say
