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.
