How do I assign caller ID names on a BCM 450 that are greater than 7 characters

I have a Nortel BCM 450 and I want to give every Phone/DN a caller ID name.  When I try to do this through the BCM Element Manager I can only enter 7 characters for the Phone/DN name to appear on the caller ID.  Is there any way to make this longer?  

I have a 32 character display on my phone and when I call someone and it is handed over to voice mail the display will show the entire mailbox name (first and last name)  I know the system is capable of displaying much more characters than I can define.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sadly you can't. For all of the bells and whistles Nortel put into the BCM this is one area that they failed to upgrade from the Norstar systems.

I have no way to verify this statement so I will take it a face value.
