Wireless Home Phone Connect: Caller ID with MY name on outgoing calls?
Amkor617
Newbie

Since I'm using this line for my small business, before switching to this product, I want to be 100% sure that it has Caller ID with Name, but even MORE important: that when I call OUT, the recipient of my call will be able to SEE MY NAME on his screen (of course, as long as he has that feature)... 

Thanks!

Well, it is a cellular number and for the most part, cellular numbers do not have names listed on caller ID unless they are in your contacts. I see no reason to think Home Phone Connect would be any different.

With that said, Verizon offers a free service called "Share Name ID" where you can have Verizon make your name available for caller ID. It is an option in your MyVerizon account.

Page 19 has the very basic explanation of what's Caller ID, as far as what I can see on MY phone for incoming calls. My question was different, I want OTHERS to see MY Caller ID with my name.

Yes, I just learned about "Share Name ID" last night, I was just curious if this product behaves same as my regular iPhone in that sense...

Amkor617, thanks for that clarification. Share Name ID is a free service which allows you to customize the name that others will see on their screen when you call them.  Click the link below for more information regarding this feature and how to set it up:
