    It is a available in WP 8.1 (Cyan). Go to SETTINGS APPLICATION phone

    If you do not have it than it is blocked by your provider same as #31#

    Cyan and its non developer. I had preview for devs and still didn't have it. I downgraded back to cyan in preparation of Lumia Denim.

    Then the only thing what I can think of is that your provider blocked this. Because on my 625,820 925 and 930 I have this option

    If its provider/carrier related you should ask your provide guess.
    Just to be sure
    You checked under SETTINGS than APPLICATIONS (Not system) . There you see a list starting with
    Internet Explorer
    Maps.
    .
    .
    phone
    .
    .
    and under phone you looked?

    As stated above, not having the option means it is disabled by your carrier.

    I have an L520, and am in the US using AT&T. I have the option there.

    There is a "press and hold" pop up choice for "Show My Caller ID to", with the choices being "Everyone, No one, My contacts".

    If that isn't available, then the carrier has blocked it, and you'll need to speak to your carrier about it. Laws about blocking your caller ID may vary from country to country, so that may apply as well.

    I could always hide my ID on Vodafone Ireland but I cant on my Lumia 520

    In the part that says, "Show my ID to", there is a rectangle that has the word, "everyone". Press and hold "everyone" to get the choices, if you have them. You'll see this type of options all over the place in WP.

    You are looking in phone > "three dots" > settings, rather than the settings section?
