    Default Caller ID in NZ?

    How does caller ID work in NZ? Is it like the US, where you can choose whether or not to show your number when calling someone, etc? Or is there always a way to see who's calling?

    I guess this would be referring to Telstra Clear phone service, or whatever's most used.

    I have the number of whose calling come up on my vodaphone cell phone, but not the name. But then my phone is the bottom of the line cheapo. I don't have caller ID on my home phone so I don't see anything when anyone calls.

    Big fan of making prank calls?

    As far as I know, it only applies to mobile phones (cellphones), not landlines, so your name only appears if you are on the person you are calling's address book. Unsure if you can withhold on that basis?
