    Hi All

    I am new to this forum, so my apologies if I am not in the correct place for this question.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to hide my outgoing mobile telephone number when using my HTC Magic phone.

    When I call out on my B.T. land line it says that my number has been witheld & I would like to do a similar thing with my Google phone.

    I am on a contract & spoke to Vodafone today & they said that all phones have a privacy setting to do this but could not tell me where it was on my handset. I have looked & cant see it either.

    They did say that you can dial 141 before the call which would be okay but a bit of a pain unless there is a setting to allow this prefix number on all outgoing calls.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for your help.

    Tony

    Hi Tony & Welcome to the forums! :D

    You can indeed set it to private via the settings :

    Settings -> Call Settings -> Call GSM settings -> Caller ID -> Hide number

    Along those same lines, is there any easy way to unblock the numbers in the contact list, but to block other outgoing calls. Or is *67 the only way to do this?
