Nokia e71, how to block my telephone number being sent when sending a sms

i can not stop my e71 from sending my phone number when sending a sms. in call settings i set send my caller ID to no and send my internet call ID to no but my sms recipient can still read my phone number. do you know any ways around that? thanks

As far as I am aware it is not possible to do so. What legitimate reason would you have for wanting to block your number when sending an sms anyway?

That reason is hardly legitimate but if she means so much to you, you can always get a prepaid sim.

I don't wanna be your partner in crime, but take a look at page 120 of the English manual.

I am pretty sure the Send Caller ID setting only affects voice calls and not sms's.
