I have iPhone 6 I just purchased from Boost. The phone was given to me as. present and my son is signed up with AT+T  and  he was the owner of the account.  I now have transferred the number to my new Boost phone but when I call someone it still shows the presious owner as person calling. How can I update this to my own name?..

How is this done because if I call Customer service, I cannot get an option that actually gets me to a person or is even close to referencing the issue of an incorrect name on the caller ID. Do I have to go through getting a new number?.. and how long will that take?
