In Gingerbread, Settings > Call settings > Additional settings > Caller ID, there are 3 options available:

  • Network default
  • Hide number
  • Show number

I'm currently paying $5 a month to get caller id. If I were to cancel that service, will the OS still display the caller?

There are providers out there that actually charge you for caller identification??? Is this common practice where you from? – Flow Oct 7 '11 at 9:12
From Toronto, Canada. We get gouged on all kind of silly stuffs for a lot of money. I've been to developed countries where every new phone comes with caller id for free. – Thierry Lam Oct 7 '11 at 12:01

That option doesn't give or take the ability to see other people callerID, it only let's you choose whether the people you're calling see your callerID or not.
