    Hi,

    I am wondering if Android allows you to suppress sending the own number when calling someone.
    I suppose there'll be a general option (like generally sending/hiding number) but I'd be particularly interested if there's an option to send it only to certain numbers (like all stored contacts or maybe even specific contacts) and not to all.

    Is there some option like this? Thanks a lot! :)

    Try...

    settings -> call settings -> advanced call settings -> caller id

    That is where it is for me on my phone.

    Thanks Adam, to be honest, I dont have yet an Android phone, so I cant try. Wouldnt this setting apply to Android in general and not be phone specific? Which one would you have?

    Which options does this setting give you?

    There's an app that can actually show a different number and can alter you voice. I can't remember what it's called. I just saw it on one of my co-worker's phone.

    Yes it is a general OS setting as far as I am aware and I have a Motorola Cliq and a new Cliq XT on its way to me.

    Network Default
    Hide Number
    Show Number

    Regards,

    Is this on all Android phones?
    I don't see anything remotely close to this for my DROID.

    The DROID is a CDMA phone, we are discussing common options with GSM phones. Different feature sets between the standards.

    Thanks, might you be referring to SpoofApp?

    I see, thanks but these are the standard settings, I'd be looking for something more granular in terms of individual contacts/numbers.

    Thanks, but I'd like to avoid the prefix game .....

    Would anybody else have an idea, maybe some well-hidden third party application, ...... ?!?!?
