A NON FIOS question: I do not have FIOS so, on copper land line service how does one verify that MY USER ID is properly set up so that when I call someone else, THEIR CALLER ID properly identifies me? I have heard that this feature can be blocked so that other peoples Caller ID will not present my name. Not that I want to do this but, getting back to the question, I want to verify that this feature is working and is not blocked.
LOL ... Too easy. The people I usually call already have my number in their phone book so just calling them is not a foolproof verification.
I should have been more clear. There has to be a way to control this. I get a lot of spam calls on my land line that Verizon's caller id function only identifies by city name or just a number. These callers obviously have some control over the info they present when they call me. How can I do the same?
