Can I prevent my name and phone number from appear on outgoing calls?

Yes. You can use Caller ID block (*67) on a per-call basis to block your own identity when calling another phone number.

Caller ID block works on a per-call basis so you will need to follow these steps each time you wish to block your Caller ID information.

To use:

  1. Dial *67 and wait for a dial tone
  2. Dial the telephone number you wish to reach
  3. If this person has Caller ID, your telephone number will appear as “Private Caller.”
  4. If the person has anonymous call rejection, you will hear a recording that says “The party you have dialed does not accept blocked calls. Please hang up and redial the number without blocking your phone number.”
