My phone number shows as restricted on caller ID's when I call people. I don't like this. How can I change it? I never changed it to reflect a blocked number, so I don't know how to fix the problem.

I saw this works on GSM phones, CDMA Verizon phones may be different.

Try: Settings - Phone - Show my caller ID = On

or

My verizon-->my services-->my plan-->under additional features-->click add/remove features/apps/programs-->select phone line-->Scroll down to basic features-->Caller ID Blocking-->Remove-->Continue

On MyVerizon (verizonwireless.com) you can set your ShareName to display whatever you wish.

Yeah, but that is changing the name of the display AFTER you have unblocked your number from displaying.

Reptile_Lover,

That would definitely be frustrating if no one could see your number! If you check your account, does it show caller ID blocking is set up? http://vz.to/18VqThO Does this happen on all calls or only some?
