3. After 48 hours, you can re-submit your preferred Caller ID Name. Go to Admin Portal > Phone System > Company Info > Caller ID Name, and then enter your preferred Outbound Caller ID Name exactly the way how you want it to appear on Caller ID displays whenever an outbound call is made using your RingCentral local phone numbers.
