The caller ID block can be a handy feature to have for your line Irishsmurf70. It can sometimes prevent friends and family from answering your call though as they may not know it was you. You can turn this off two ways. The first option is on a call by call basis. You would simply dial *82 and then the 10 digit number. This would allow your number to show up on their phone. If you would like to remove this permanently so that your number shows up with all callers, you will simply need to remove the caller ID block from your line. When you log into your My Verizon account online, click on Block and Unblock Services, click Additional Services, Caller ID Blocking, Continue, OK. This will remove the block from your line.
