Vanity Number and Caller ID Newbie ?

Hi I just got my Telo today and set it up.
So Far so good. Sounds better than my Uverse phone.

My question is about Caller ID. I read it will take up to 10 days for my name to show up. I tried calling my landline just to see how this sounded and it rings as Anonymous and then my Telo number shows but I get disconnected right away. I checked all of my Uverse setting and I have all call blocking turned off so I don't think it's the phone service blocking it. Any ideas on that?

Question 2

When I researched Ooma last week before I ordered, I saw a video that showed you how to set it all up and they showed selecting a "Vanity" number with you name or anything else. Is that different from "picking your number" when you activate your phone? During activation all I was offered was the area code and first 3 numbers not a whole vanity number choice. Now I can't find this video I saw so I don't know if that is old info or what. Any ideas on this one?
Thanks for the help.
