Which phone # I call from

Post by Mjock3 » Wed Sep 09, 2020 7:24 am

We are given 2 phone numbers when we sign up. How do I chose which phone # that I am calling from. And what number shows up on caller ID?

TIA,
Mark

The default is the primary phone number.

You can force it by preceding the number you want to call with the following:

**0 - Line1
**1 - Line2

The caller ID is whatever you specified.
It does take some time for the data to propagate to all of the caller ID servers in the country.
Caller ID is not sent with the call.
The destination phone company looks it up in whatever caller ID server they subscribe to.
