When I call someone, they can see my cell number, "Chilliwack", British Columbia on their cell phone display. But, I chose "Vancouver" number (604-790-****) when I opened my Koodo mobile account.

How can I fix this problem? I want my city (Vancouver) to be displayed on the people's phone I call. I am using an unlocked iPhone 6S plus bought from outside of Canada. Thank you in advance.

Hello Min.

I think that your only option is to change area code. There's no way to change what is shown on people's phone manually.
