Do this experiment to prove TMO wrong:
Call from a land line to your Cell #, but proceed the # with *82
which will guarantee that the Caller ID ("CID") is sent. See what happens on your phone.
Then try it again, but this time proceed your call with *67
which will block your CID. Is it any different?
If you still can't see your CID with the *82
then there is some TMO problem, but it could be also dependent on where your local dial tone comes from. If it comes from an RBOC like SBC or Verizon, the you can ask TMO to escalte it or try the same experiment from their land lines to their own phones or to yours.
If your Local Service Provider is a CLEC or Independent company- they might not be transmitting it. In that case, try the experiement from an RBOC land line to make sure.
