Pay Extra for Incoming Caller ID?

I've been using RingCentral for several weeks now. I noticed that incoming calls from numbers that were not in my contacts list showed up as "Unknown". When I chatted with tech support to find out why Caller ID wasn't working for incoming calls, I was told for the first time (since it doesn't appear in the "features" description) that I would have to upgrade to at least a Premium plan. This would cost me $540 a year for RingCentral to provide what the phone company already provides for free. I really don't need any of the features in the other plans, and had absolutely no idea when I signed up that Caller ID would be an upcharge.

This should be a basic feature for all plans. Its lack in Essentials and Standard is inexplicable.

I wasn't sure this was still the case. I agree that they should just include it in all plans. I've asked nicely a couple of times and got Caller ID Names added to a standard account.

I was told that I could only get it with a Premium or Ultimate plan. And I was nice. :)

Second that, worst platform I’ve ever dealt with, the more we stay with them the more quirks we find.
