    Question On Verizon phones, can you "hide" your phone number when making a call?

    Do Verizon phones have the option to "hide" your phone number when making a call so that it doesn't appear on the recipient's caller ID?

    You can add complete caller ID blocking (free) and release the number with a *82. I also believe you can use *67 to block your number if you do not have the above option.

    *67+the number you are calling will block it on a per-call basis. You can CS if you want to permanently block your number on all calls and *82+the number you are calling will unblock it on a per-call basis.

    Yes, they're called "Vertical Service Codes". The assignments are guidelines so they aren't mandatory, but most carriers follow them. Of course, not all carriers implement all the services in the list.

    The list is maintained by the North American Numbering Plan Administration.

    FYI, Cingular (old BellSouth Mobility DCS service area at lease), Alltel, and Sprint PCS implement *67.

    I think its a law now that all phone services give the customers a right to block or release caller id permantly or temporary. So yes, *67 is to temp block ur id per call, and *82 to release ur number if you on caller id block permantlely. Just call vzw if you want your caller id permantly.. but wat for?

    GSM networks have #31# (caller id block) and *31# (caller id unblock) which work on EVERY GSM network.

    Some US GSM carriers choose to enable *67. T-Mobile (sometime over the summer) enabled *67. Before they enabled it, it caused an error message.
