      n 1: a small display that will show you the telephone number of

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  Caller ID
      (CID) A short piece of text transmitted by
     some telephone systems describing the origin of a call,
     e.g. the name of the caller.  Some telephone handsets can
     display this.  A computer telephony integration system might
     use it to trigger actions on the callee's computer such as
     looking up the caller in a database and displaying their
     details on screen.
     There may also be a separate "caller id number" giving the
     telephone number of the originator of the call.
