Can't Update Caller ID Name

I keep trying to change the name on one of our extensions since it's an employee that no longer works with us but I keep getting an error when I try to save it: 

An error occurred

Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again later. If you continue to experience this error, please wait 24 hours and try again.

 

I changed the user name and saved just fine, I waited a day to try the caller ID name again but get the same error.

Please click on my handle (Comcast_Gina) and send a private message with your name, the business name, the complete service address (including city, state, ZIP, suite number, etc), and the phone or account number, as well as the extension and the name that you'd like it to be updated with.

Any updates on this.  I have exactly the same problem but only for two users.  They are both administrators.

@user_9b5096 Hello! Sorry to learn about the duplicate issue. Have you checked this yet?  https://comca.st/33iP2wE;

 

Does the error show even after these steps?

I don't understand why you always refer users to contact privately.  If you put some of the steps here, most of your users could attempt a self-solve and be self-sufficient in the future.

I am having the same issue for one user.  I cannot update the caller id. I get the same error message list by user leponder.

Hi, @JJPeterson and @user_9868e1! Thanks for reaching out to Comcast over our forums page. I am sorry to learn about the caller ID concern. We can help. In order to further assist, we will just need to pull up the account with your account information via private message for security purposes. Once we confirm we are working on the correct account, it is possible that we may need to open a request with our Advance Repair team. Here is also a link to more details on how to [change what phone number appears with the caller ID name](https://comca.st/3keqlv6). Please let me know if this helps.
