Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Turning Caller ID on and off, part of iOS 5: iPhone and iPod touch Essential Training.
Caller ID is another feature that's on by default on your iPhone.…When people call your phone, you'll see their number appear on the screen while…the phone is ringing.…This lets you see if you recognize the number and decide whether to answer the call or not.…When people whose phone numbers you have listed in your Contacts call your…phone, you'll see their names appear in the same way you've entered them…into your Contacts.…You can't turn off the ability to see the numbers or names of the people calling you.…And frankly, I can't think of a good reason to do so, but you can turn off the…ability of others to see your Caller ID information whenever you call them.…Now whatever reason you have to hide your identity from your callers until they…pick up is your own business.…
I'm just here to show you how to do it.…Go to Settings>Phone>Show My Caller ID.…And here you can tap the switch to turn it off.…When you have Show My Caller ID off and you place a call, the person receiving…your call will see a variety of messages depending on the phone you're calling.…
