Default How do I block my number being sent?

Please Login to Remove!

I have the BB8320 on Orange and I need to prevent people from seeing who is calling them - i.e. to withhold my number.

I can't find any functionality within the options menu

Any ideas?
(I'm aware I can manually type 141 before dialling someone's number)

Phone > Options > General Options > Restrict My Identity = Always
(Not sure if that's the same for all carriers and/or OS versions. YMMV.)

Phone dialer screen (press the green key) > Menu (left of trackball) > Options > Restrict My Identity = set as desired.
