Caller ID and Caller ID Block
Caller ID with Name displays the name and telephone number (if available) for incoming calls on any Caller ID enabled device or telephone. For calls that you place from a Vonage U.S. residential telephone number, your name and telephone number are displayed, if this feature is supported by the service of the person you are calling.
The display of your name and telephone number is turned on automatically with your Vonage service. The name that you provide when you sign up for Vonage service is the name that is displayed when you place a call.
Using Caller ID Block, you can turn off outbound Caller ID display for a single call or turn Caller ID off or on for all outbound calls.
Cost: Free, included with your Vonage service.
