    I just cant seem to find a good doc / example on how to reconfigure the Caller ID information being passed from: xxxxxxxxxx to: (xxx) xxx-xxxx

    I know I need to edit the Trunk Editor Inbound and Outbound, but I just cant find a good U.S.example.

    Thanks!!

    May I ask why ?? How would someone redial ? (Cause obviously when you call out you can't send the telco those ()- characters )

    Dashes and spaces (on the numeric portion of CID) are normally inserted by the receiving device.

    Thanks for clearing that up, I was asking the wrong question.

    Then is there a way to configure the softphobe 3CX client and my Yealink devices to display the format (xxx) xxx-xxxx? This is the format that the cellular carriers and even Google Voice shows when calls are received.

    It's whow the device you are using, formats the number. There may be a Yealink feature that allows this. Many mobiles will do this for numbers, in the format used, for the country the the set was originally issued in.
