    Caller ID Question ...
    iPhone 4
    Version 6.0.1
    AT&T
    .................

    I do phone volunteer work for several national charitable organizations.

    I'd like to use my iPhone to make those calls - but wish to remain anonymous to those I'm calling.

    Does my iPhone automatically identify me when making outgoing calls?

    Settings > General > About > Name: Steve Smith
    Will Steve Smith automatically show up on the recipients caller ID ?

    Thanks

    Don't know about you.... but when I receive an incoming call and the caller ID is blocked, I refuse to answer and kill the call.

    I know just what you mean, and normally leave my Caller ID set to ON.

    However, when doing volunteer phone work - I'll make hundreds of calls ...
    And inevitably I wind up with a few nuts ...
    They may get ****** off that I phoned them during a basketball game or something ...
    And actually call me back and try to harass me.
    I can't do my volunteer work that way.
