Unfortunately no, and for good reason. It would leave us all open to abuse! What's to stop me from entering your landline number as my caller ID and making obscene calls? or hoax 999 calls? All is not lost though...
What VoIP providers are you using? The reason I ask, some VoIP providers will add an existing landline number to your VoIP account for a small fee (proof of ownership is required, such as a copy of your last BT bill) allowing you to use it as the outgoing caller ID for that SIP line. In fact, I use such a feature myself. My Business number is provided by Voicehost, I had the number added to my Voipfone accounts CLI list so that I can select it as the outgoing caller ID when dialling out via Voipfone. Now, when calling out over Voicehost or Voipfone, the same caller ID is displayed! Cost me a one off £5 fee.
