This sounds like a issue with a outbound route. Where in this case, the CID is being overridden.

Unsure of your whole setup, but in the past, I have always used freepbx for configuration. In freepbx, On the trunks being used for outbound calls, you can set the CID. I am also unsure of your trunk provider, they may be overriding the CID also.

Pass CID to cell phone

Posted:Thu 20 of Nov, 2008 (15:17 UTC)
Running AsteriskNow. Asterisk version 1.4.18.

I have a few extensions set up to dial both a local extension and a cell phone. It works, but the CID doesn't get passed to the cell phone. I want both to ring at the same time.

In my extensions.conf

(ringgroup-rick)
gui_ring_groupname=Rick
exten=s,1,NoOp(RINGGROUP)
exten=s,n,Dial(SIP/210&SIP/trunk_1/16665554444,16)
exten=s,n,Voicemail(210,u)


(numberplan-custom-1)
...
exten=210,1,Goto(ringgroup-rick|s|1)


The local extension does show the CID, but the cell phone shows our office number as the CID. How can I pass the correct CID from the outside call on to the cell phone?
