I was hoping that someone might be able to helo me out on this:

Frequently I call clients/people and wish to restrict my identity (as Blackberry OS calls it) or turn off outbound caller ID on a per use basis.

Is there any shortcut to doing so? Currently, I have to go to my address book and copy the phone number, type in *67 and then paste the number for it to work. I am afraid by going into the options and selecting the "restrict my identity" that I will forget to shut it off as I only use it on a per call basis selectively.

Any ideas?

What about adding *67<NUMBER> as an additional number for the entries to which you sometimes wish to restrict your identity?

That's one way to do it and I appreciate the input. Honestly, its more for the call log. Its annoying to cut and paste from there. However your idea aint bad...its just I am lazy.

FWIW, some carriers dont support *67 however #31# should do the same thing on all GSM carriers.

Any shortcut or way to create one from the phone screen or home screen?

not that I am aware of.. you could probably put it in an address book entry if you want to specifically have it on one entry all the time

Seems like that's the way it will have to be.

What's about "talking caller ID"? I've heard that some LG phones have the ability to speak out the incoming caller ID...handy for myself seeing how I live on my 8700 as a phone.

If the technology exists, I would think some developer might jump on that as I would pay for an add-in like that.
