    OK, less than a 24 hour user but I have a couple questions. It seems the apple manual doesn't correctly tell you:
    1) How to set your number to caller ID off when making a call. The manual says go to settings>phone> caller ID, but there isn't any such loop.
    2.) Are you not able to select specific sounds for your incoming voicemail, text messages, and email or do you have to accept the automatic sounds that play?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    OK. Found the answer to #1, Apparently the manual available under safari on the phone is an updated version of the iPhone4 manual on Apple's website. To enable blocking your number during a call hit *67 then the number. Still don't know about setting specific alert sounds.

    Another way to block you number is go into settings and go to the phone and where is show my caller ID tap that and and turn it off that is another way

    For ringtones they are in the section that says sounds and that is how you choose you text tone and ringtone, but other sounds are default and can't even change then

    Reread the OP's post. On Verizon, that setting isn't on the phone.

    I have the AT&t iPhone I can dial that *67 and it will allow me to block. Since there is hardly any difference that setting should be there

    *67 is the only way to block your ID on the Verizon version. There is no selection in settings for caller ID.

    Do other Verizon phones have this feature on the phone itself? I'm wondering if it is network specific.
