    How to make my iPhone to show full details of incoming caller, i.e. not only first name and family name of caller, but also company name? With so many contacts sometimes it is difficult to link a person to company.
    Is there any way to solve my problem?

    I don't know that it can be done. Currently it appears there is only one line available for the iPhone to use for Caller ID. There is a second smaller line that is used if you have the person in your contact list that shows which phone number it is, i.e. mobile, home, work, etc.

    The only issue that I would see with that is for businesses that have PBX systems and the phone numbers they call out from don't always match what number you have entered in your phonebook. Also, when you get a call from a number you don't have entered, all you get is the number line from Caller ID, not the name of the caller and/or business, even though this information is sent through Caller ID. I guess it is an enhancement we could ask Apple for on their feedback page.:confused:

    you could always set a picture of their company logo as their Contact Photo, so when they call it says their name and "mobiile" (or w/e)
    and then shows a picture of their company logo

    If yu go to into contacts and edit an existing contact you can add a company name there. I'm not sure if it will display. Or you can make a new contact with the same number with just the company info and when a call is received from that number the display will show "John Q Public or ABC Electric". You get the idea.
