Hi all. I have an issue I need some help with. I have a CME version 4.0 and at this point in time, when I callfwdall my office phone to my cell phone, and someone calls my DID number at the office, the callID number that shows up is my office number, instead of the person actually calling me. Is there a way to fix this, to where the actual caller shows at the callID instead of my office number showing as the callID?

Hi, ask your telco if they are OK with sending an arbitrary calling number and present it to the called party.


That is only allowed in some parts of North America for PRI customers, where evidently they are not concerned about people pretending to be calling from the White House or something like that.
