Outgoing caller id

How do I change my outgoing caller ID to my name instead of wireless caller? I know it's possible, as my parents have Xfinity mobile, and it displays their names when they call a landline. I recently switched from Verizon and it only says "wireless caller" when I call a landline. It previously displayed my name with Verizon.

I am having the exact problem. How can this be changed?

XM is an MVNO, you can't change it and its not worth the price to get it.

Re: Outgoing caller id

If someone ported or transferred their landline phone number to XM or another carrier, then that number and associated name may still be in the databases that many landline companies use in their caller id functions. 

That is my best guess, and I am sticking to it.
