Run into a problem when CID comes with leading +, i.e. +1.
US context from-pstn-e164-us pretty much takes care of it but if your trunk connected to other countries where provider sends CID with leading plus and length of CID is not 10 - then there are a number of ways to remove it.
Main reason a + sign has to be removed is that CID stored on extension phone with it and when one tries to call back from call history - call does not go through.

It is not advisable, but if one could remember what was done to settings - the simplest way is to add full SIP provider context to:
/etc/asterisk/extensions_override_freepbx.conf
and remove plus sign there before it is passed for processing
View Code[from-trunk-sip-Provider_Context]
include => from-trunk-sip-Provider_Context-custom
exten => _.,1,Set(GROUP()=OUT_1)
; Remove the leading +
exten => _X!,1,GotoIf($["${CALLERID(num):0:1}" != "+"]?noplusatstart)
exten => _X!,n,NoOp(Changing Caller ID number from ${CALLERID(num)} to ${CALLERID(num):1})
exten => _X!,n,Set(CALLERID(num)=${CALLERID(num):1})

exten => _.,n(noplusatstart),Goto(from-trunk,${EXTEN},1)
;exten => _.,n,Goto(from-trunk,${EXTEN},1) ; this is original line commented-out
;--== end of [from-trunk-sip-Provider_Context] ==--;


the following code removes the plus sign only:
View Code; Remove the leading +
exten => _X!,1,GotoIf($["${CALLERID(num):0:1}" != "+"]?noplusatstart)
exten => _X!,n,NoOp(Changing Caller ID number from ${CALLERID(num)} to ${CALLERID(num):1})
exten => _X!,n,Set(CALLERID(num)=${CALLERID(num):1})

The rest of the code is taken from your SIP provider context.
It's a dirty hack, but it works.
If SIP settings for a given trunk ever changed - this file has to be edited manually or trunk may not work.There's no place like ~
