Can I Change the Caller ID Location?

Environment

  • All Active Republic Wireless phones

Answer

We cannot change the location that shows up on Caller ID when your phone makes a call. Your Caller ID location cannot be changed as it's not determined by your Caller ID, instead, it is determined by the geographic location from the rate center that your number originates from.

The only way to have any change in location would be to get an entirely new phone number. For more information on changing your phone number: How to Change a Phone Number Through Your Account Portal.

Additional Notes

Your caller ID display name can be fixed. For information on changing your caller ID display name see How to Fix Displayed Caller ID
