    Not only can they change the caller ID , they did it for me. When I got a
    phone for my daughter, my name originally came up because it was on my
    shared minutes account. I called them to change her phone to show her name
    and it took about 5 minutes.

    Call them, don't send an email.

    I have a 3-line account, billed to my business. The Sprint rep was only too
    happy to have each individual user's name appear, rather than the business
    name. It took only a few minutes.

    I believe they (used to, at least) call it "Swapping Authorized User".
    They did it for me, too, years ago.

    We still call it that too. It's part of P2K, one of the business systems we
    use. We say up to 72 hours just to save our butts in case we are wrong
    though...

    i was able to change the ID on my phones by calling customer support.
    i have 4 phones. i sucessfully got a hold of someone who understood
    what needed to be done, it took 4 tries but well worth it. good luck!
