Does my caller ID show up while roaming in Canada and making a call to the US?

Hi, 

 

I was wondering what my caller ID showed when roaming in Canada and making a call to the US?  Does it show my proper number or does my number get screwed up?

 

I paid for the reduced price Canadian calling feature from AT&T.  I am also using an iPhone.

In general, it should work, but there are no guarantees. There's always the possibility of the caller id getting lost somewhere along the way, but it should usually work from Canada - from other countries it'll be less reliable. I would expect either the correct number, or "out of area/unavailable". Now, if you're calling a toll free number they will probably get a number that identifies where you are calling from, rather than your own, because they use that for billing purposes (the owner of the toll free number would need to get charged for a call to Canada).
