    VOIP Phone Provider That Allows Number Spoofing?

    I've been with Viatalk for a few months now and have had Vonage for years. Both of these services are great. However, there is one thing that I'd like to do and see if anyone knows of a good provider that allows this.

    Change the NUMBER on outbound caller ID.

    Viatalk will only change the name, but I'd much rather the outbound CID show my cell number.

    I don't need to many outgoing minutes. <1500 would be fine.

    Or how hard would it be to buy the phone adapter, install asterisk on a VPS and let myself do this. I'm assuming I have to buy a number or something or another...not even sure if that is a viable option.

    CallCentric is an excellent VoIP provider that I've used for years, and they'll let you set your outgoing Caller ID if you submit a ticket for it.

    You'll have to verify that the number you want to set it to is yours by calling a number they give you from it.

    Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

    That would seem to accomplish the objective while also stopping obvious potential abuse.

    Hello,
    Google Voice allows you to display your cell phone number on outbound calls if your cell phone provider is Sprint. Its even free

    I believe voip.ms supports it. Atleast from within their account portal you can set your caller id to whatever you want.
