Let us clarify this for you, @pullmyefinger

 

We understand that you are trying to change the caller ID, so that it shows a different display name, besides "wireless caller". It appears that devices on PREPAID accounts can not be changed.

 

 

There are no available options to update or change the caller ID name on that prepaid number. We do apologize for the inconvenience.

You can use this resource to change the caller ID, if you decide to set up a Postpaid account in the future.

  1. Go to your myAT&T Profile and select People & permissions.
  2. Select Show details for the number you want to update on Caller ID.
  3. Choose Edit for Caller ID.
  4. Enter the info and select Save.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

 

Thanks for reaching out to AT&T Community Forums.

Nelson, AT&T Community Specialist.

That's not going to happen.   Time to look around for another carrier.
