How do I get the Pixel (Android 12) to show the incoming phone number for probable spam?

+5

I have a Pixel 5A running Android 12 (I assume stock Android because it's a Pixel, but I don't know how to tell). The phone app that came with it reports probable spam or scam calls by labeling them "Scam Likely" or "Spam Likely" in the caller-ID slot. All good so far.

My previous phone, a ZTE Axon 7 running an earlier, non-stock Android, also had this behavior. However, the previous phone also displayed the incoming phone number. How do I get that behavior on the Pixel? I can get the number from the Pixel call log after the fact, but I want it to show while the call is ringing. Very occasionally, in the past, the "unwanted call" marker has been wrong, but if I was expecting a call from that area code I could answer anyway.

In the phone's application settings on the Pixel, "See Caller and Spam ID" is a single option and it is turned on. I haven't used automatic call-screening yet, though as far as I can tell, that doesn't interact with how names/numbers/labels are displayed.

I'd rather keep the default phone app than replace it.

Can I get the caller phone number along with the estimation of its spamminess?
