show my number on outgoing calls

How do I change the default for whether my phone number shows up on my outgoing phone calls?  I have used SIMon, which says o press "*31#" before every call, but I want my default to be that my number is shown.  Thank you.

If recipient has call display, and most do, your number is seen.

Try dialing *67 ahead of area code and number.

That does the opposite.

At the Public Mobile account level, the default setting is for your number to be shown.  Check your phone settings menu for something similar to "Show My Caller ID".

Re: show my number on outgoing calls

Please try the following:

 

Opening your Phone app, the blue icon. Touch the 3-dot "memu". Touch "Settings".

Locate "Calls" or "Additional settings". Touch "Additional settings".

If the SIM card is properly seated and readable, Android will read your phone number from the SIM settings.

Finally, locate "Caller ID".

Ensure that it is set to: Use default operator settings to display my number in outgoing calls.

 

Next, verify in your self-serve account that the phone number under My Plan & Add-ons is the right phone number for your account.

 

Place a phone call. With the above default settings, your phone number should show

on the receiving phone, unless you have special app that may block your Caller ID.

 

Good luck.

Per-use on outgoing calls:

*67 blocks "public" caller ID

*82 reveals "private" caller ID

 

iPhones and Android phones always have a Setting for this... And the options are always Show, Block, or Use Carrier Default. But each device maker (and iOS/Android version) tends to bury this Setting somewhere different in layers and layers of submenus. 

 

If we know the brand/model phone (and what operating system/version it runs) then we can provide detailed instructions to find and change this setting.

Re: show my number on outgoing calls

Thank you everybody.  Now that my number is taken care of, what about my name?

 

For example, when I phone my parents, who still have a landline, their call display shows my number and "Private Name".  How do I change "Private Name" to show my name instead?

 

Thank you again!
