You can use the uac-module to change the From-header:

More specific the function: uac_replace_from

I use this for normalizing the format from my carriers and to my 
carriers (to the format they expect) so all calls from my Asterisks use 
the same format, regardless of carrier used for the call.

Make sure you only call uac_replace_from ONCE. From the doc:
"Known limitations: The “uac_replace_*” functions can only be run once 
on the same SIP request. Try to save needed changes in a pseudovariable 
and apply them once."
