Separate names with a comma.

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
What types of phones are you using?
You can also use the CallerID superfecta module for freepbx that will do a lookup to internet directory to match the incoming number to a name.
I tried with superfecta but nothing happened
Did not recognize the names I had put on the Asterisk Phonebook
My phones is SPA941
I know that i can use phone feature but i want to do through Asterisk
