Block My Number From Being Seen by Call Recipient

Is it possible to block my telephone number from being seen by the person I'm calling? I call a lot of companies that I don't necessarily want to have my telephone number. Thanks.

I have an n91.
Problem is if I want to not to let someone knowin my number I go to the settings and set my caller ID to off.
But den I cannot make calls.
Is it Network dependent?

If that's the case then it must be set by your network provider as is often the case. I find this is an invasion of my freedom of choice but in saying that I dislike receiving calls where the caller has withheld their number!

Many networks also support a dialing prefix you can enter before the number, to turn off (or on) the number visibility (caller ID) for each call individually.

The standard prefixes are *31# to show your number, #31# to hide your number.

Different network operators may support these, or not, or they might have their own.

Re: Block My Number From Being Seen by Call Recipient

In the UK, I think all networks allow the use of the prefix 141 with the number...

Which is good, because then you can store that phone number in your phonebook as 141077....

I can't tell where you're from, but it could be worth contacting your service provider and asking if there's a code like that you can use.
