To check possible reasons, do the following:


    Step 1: Check if the receiving person has a caller ID. If other party or the receiving line has caller ID and the number is not showing, proceed to Step 2. 
    Step 2: Check if the calling line ID is restricted.  
    Step 3: Try to make outgoing calls and check if the number is still withheld. 
    Step 4: If the number is still not showing to all, you could have opted for a caller ID restriction plan or withheld number plan. You need to contact the Network provider to remove the Caller ID restriction plan.
