I found it last nite..
it may not be the easiest way... but it works...

go into call log
click the menu button
choose options
choose general options
half way down, you will see an option "restrict my identity"

Hope that helps,

Lee.

If you only need to hide your number one is a while... preceed it with

*67

so instead of dialing 1 222 222 2222

you dial *67 1 222 222 2222

Note, that you have to dail 1 otherwise it will not work.

For more info .. check this link...
