Is there a free phone I can get in which I can put a business name attached to it.

I want to "look"  professional when I call businesses

    What type of call VOIP system do you have? This feature is mostly used or configured in the telephony system call control agent (say Asterisk, Cisco Callmanager, etc). For example, say you are looking for a SIP phone that will send this info, but what happens if you have analog trunks for outbound calls? The caller name won't be sent  as configured in your telephony system.

    Can you tell us more about your environment? What type of calls you make to those business? PRI calls? SKYPE calls? SIP calls?

    This is a home based business so nothing you speak of really...

    The simplest thing would be to have your carrier set the CallerID to be your business name.  Then when you call people with CallerID would see your Business Name.

    Many times they require you to have a business account.
