What does the caller ID show when I call or text someone?
The caller ID will show your Unlisted number and no name.
If you want to double check (we would too!), you can try:
- Calling or texting yourself to see what shows up
- Calling or texting a friend and asking them what they see
- Go to https://calleridtest.com and enter your Unlisted number. We have no affiliation with that website, we just find it useful!
Note: Under no circumstances will your real phone number ever be shown by default. Calls and texts don't use your phone at all so there is no connection between your real number and your Unlisted number. Instead, Unlisted uses your data connection to connect to our servers and we make the call or text from there. Using Unlisted lets you hide your caller ID.
Interested in setting a name for your caller ID?
If you contact us, you have the ability to optionally set your name or business name as the caller ID. This is completely opt-in and if you do not contact us this then your caller ID will remain empty as described above. For more information, see Set a Custom Caller ID.
