What does the caller ID show when I call or text someone?
When you use your Unlisted number to call or text someone, the other party will see your Unlisted number as the caller ID. There will be no name on the caller ID. 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. 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.
