If you are the account owner, log into your MyVerizon account. Under "Manage My Account" click on "Change Features".  If you have multiple lines, choose the line you would like your number available. Remove "Caller ID Blocking"

I have no idea. This started happening when a Verizon agent added Call Filter on our phones. After that my husband and I could not receive or send texts, not even to each other and our phone numbers show up as restricted. The next day I missed work due to being on chat with Verizon Support for 5 hours. It WAS fixed or so I thought but now it's doing it again even though I went on my account and all blocks are off. Verizon changed my plan the same day and it says I'm not even eligible for Call Filter.  So, again, I have no idea why.
