Comcast is providing a digital voice service similar to Verizon's digital voice service.  Those services frequently include a number of features in the price. 

Your posts indicate you do not have FiOS so your phone is a true copper landline. That phone service is the old style and every feature on it is a central office function you must subscribe to in order to receive it.

One NON-FIOS Verzion plan, and there may be others, that includes unlimited calls and callerid is Verizon Freedom Essentials.  OP you need to check what plans are available in your area.

For certain plans Verizon doesn't charge either.  Notably FIOS which includes a bunch of "free" services with Fios Digital Voice.

Thanks for your reply but Verizon does not offer FIOS in my area thus my issue still remains... Why is Version charging a rather large fee for Caller ID on land lines when Comcast includes it at no extra charge?

Obviously I don't know what plans Verizon has in your area.  I had "included" callerid in my plan many years before I got FIOS.  So ask what plans are available in your area.

Remember these forums are peer to peer.
