Incoming call to mobile shows where call originated from.

Hi experts. A few guys I work with who are also with BT mobile when they get an incoming call on their mobile not only does it display the number it also shows where the call (supposedly) originated from.
Is this something that is set up on the handset or on some BT mobile network settings?

Hi @Devon_Dave

I know on iPhones if a number calling is not in your phone book it will show the number and area for example Leeds or York. 

I’m not sure if android software has anything similar.

There are also some Android apps that say they can show location of incoming call. Not tried them so cannot vouch for reliability or accuracy.
