Yes, it's legal in the US. Most people don't realize this, but you can't block your ID 100% when making calls. The reason for this is that: 1) Toll-free number owners need to see who they're being charged for receiving calls from. 2) Protection from people making harassing calls. It's funny because I have a lot of paranoid friends who block caller ID because they don't want businesses or whoever knowing who they are, but the "system" works just the opposite of that. What I mean is that everyone should turn on caller ID. The bad guys don't need you to turn it on anyway. The good guys, friends and family, need you to turn it on so they can then block or ignore calls from the bad guys. There's nothing worse then having to take calls from the bad guys because you think a friend or family person is trying to call you with caller ID blocked.

Yeah - I'm not quite sure of the legality of this. Telephone operators are required to comply with the request of callers to block their number when they send/transit calls. In this case it appears that you are effectively forwarding your calls to another service [or carrier] who then disregards this request. I can do not believe that this is truly legal.
