Voice - Dial - CallerID - Personal Cell Phone

If a "Personal Cell Phone Number" has gone thru thru the Twilio verification processed and then used as a Dial parameter - is the outbound call actually being sent via the personal cell phone number or is it just being used to present a caller-ID to the person being called?

    It is just being used to present the verified number as the caller ID to the person you are calling.

    More specifically, Twilio is not making a call on behalf of your phone number using your network or costing you fees on your cell phone plan. Twilio is placing the call itself, but asserting that the phone number that this call is coming from, the caller ID, is your cell phone number.

    @JHinkle Easy answer here: yes you can! You can make and receive multiple calls on the same phone number with no issue with Twilio.

    If Twilio is make the call and the Cell-Phone number is just being used as the Caller-ID seen on the callee's phone - can I make multiple calls using that same Caller-ID (two or more caals at same time - all of them showing the same Caller-id)?

    I want the main phone of the company to show on all outbound calls.

    Thanks
