Change the name on your caller ID by contacting Airtel.

Airtel is a wireless carrier based in India that offers a variety of GSM and CDMA phones. Most of their devices come equipped with caller ID, which allows you to see who is calling you before you answer the phone; it also allows the recipient that you are calling the ability to see your name and number before she answers the phone. If you want to change the caller ID on your Airtel phone, you can do so by contacting Airtel or by blocking your number before you make a call.
