My number is restricted

When I call my friends, they tell me that my number is showing up as "restricted" or "unknown".  I have tried going to Phone>Menu>Settings>Call>More Settings.  The only thing that shows up under "More Settings" is TTY mode or Hearing Aids.  How do I get my number to show up for my friends so they know it's me calling?

Hi Litespeed,

It is very important for your friend to know that you are calling so the call can be answered right away. Let me look into why your number is showing up as restricted. Are you having this same issue when calling others? Does the line you are calling have call blocking on it? Share more information so we can get this fixed for you.
