Tmobile Name ID

So, I find this Name ID app a little odd, I don't want everyone to know my name, especially if I happen to dial a wrong number, they know exactly who I am. What name shows up? The name I have on my account information/profile? Or the name of the primary account holder?

    Not sure what it shows, but why even use it? I've never enabled mine or used it, so it's never been an issue.

    It's a caller ID app for incoming calls and has a monthly charge. One of those apps I'd love to delete so it's not accidentally triggered.

     

    From T-mobile site:

    I just created a folder for all those crappy apps and shoved them all in there. I never touch a single one when I'm swiping through my apps screen.
