For the security of other users, their numbers wont be displayed on incoming calls, that is why you see your number! :)

I think instead of showing own number it should be something generic

Hi there, there could be 2 reasons:
- If you have a CDMA phone (no SIM card), the phone number of your contacts will never be displayed on the detailed bill.
- If you have a HSPA phone (with a SIM card), the phone number of your contacts should be displayed. If one of them isn't displayed, it's most probably a private number :)
