    Outgoing caller ID name

    Only recently I found out that my Virgin Mobile phone's outgoing caller ID shows my name with the number. Prior, it showed unknown name or wireless caller. Was this part of the system update? I had it changed back to Wireless Caller but I was curious if anyone else noticed the same. The only reason I found out was because I called my T-Mobile phone from my VM phone, and my T-Mo phone has "name ID" so it showed my name too.

    I have my T-Mobile phone set to wireless caller as well, but more so I wanted my VM number to not have my name because I use it to return CL calls.
    Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.

    Primary: iPhone 6 64GB, Galaxy Note 3, Lumia 635: 5 lines, 3x $5 Android web, 1x $2.99 T-Zones, corp discount + $10/mo loyalty discount = $93/mo tax inclusive
    Secondary: iPhone 4S & LG Ultimate 2: TracFone (Verizon)
    Tablet: iPad Mini Retina w/ T-Mobile 4G LTE ($10/mo for 5GB with hotspot)

    I didn't even know...are you saying log in, goto settings and preferences and change the contact info ? I recently tried calling and it just displayed my number on the other phone.

    Mine still shows as "Cell Phone MN." I wonder if this is a difference between pre- and post-system update accounts? Or if only some phone service providers receive caller ID information from Virgin Mobile?
