Default Hiding my number when calling?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to hide my number when calling someone? I mean when I call someone, instead of them seeing my number, they'll see "Unknown" or something like that? I could do that with my old phone (Sony S710a) but is there any way I could do this with my T-Mo 8320?

Phone Dialer Screen > Options > General Options > Restrict My Identity = YES.

neat, i didn't know about that.... ;)

also, if you wanna block your ID on a per-call basis, you can always dial *67 in front of the number.... that works too.

I never accept calls from "unknown" callers. Why restrict your identity?

This is an interesting trick. I was always looking for something like this. Thanks for this cool find

What carrier are you with? I tested this on AT&T and I was able to connect to v/m without issues.
