No Caller ID!

by diabloscoot    Feb 8, 2004, 8:32 PM

I have a new a530. I noticed the caller ID, which is one of the most basic expected functions of a cell phone didn't seem to be working. I called Verizon and the lady said that the local number I got doesn't support caller ID. I live in the small town of Socorro, New Mexico. The lady said I could get an Albuquerque number with caller ID, but I intentionally chose verizon because they could give me a local number. I live on a university campus and we can't make long distance calls from home without using a calling card and I wanted it to be easy and free for my wife to call my cell. How could it be that people with Albuquerque numbers have caller id and it still works when they come to Socorro, but I can't have it just because I live here? I know it has something to do with the network equipment here. Does anyone know if I change my network setting from NAM1 to NAM2 and reprogram my phone could it make any difference? Its very annoying not being able to have a list of missed calls, and people don't tend to leave their number on voice mail either knowing that everybody has caller ID on their cells.
