    sorry but I didnt find what I was looking for. im not sure if this has to do with the rom im using. mik2.5 but im unable to hide my number when making a phone call. is this not an option using this rom or this phone? I think *69 is kind of inconvenient. thanks.

    I'm sorry, what are you trying to do? Block your number from who?

    Consider me confused.

    when calling somebody else or making an outbound call, so your number doesnt show on their caller id. usually you can accomplish this by using *69 but "most" phones come with this option built in.

    Wow. I had no idea of that feature.

    I always thought that * 69 was a re-dial feature from the 90s lol

    Does this cost more than a normal call? (any added charges?)

    @DaRayvn: Cool, I was beginning to feel like a real goober.. :D

    @350: It might be a carrier feature? It's not something I've ever tried to do (or had a need to do).

    Without things getting too personal, can I ask what you're using this feature for? (I'm picturing awesome prank phone calls)

    lmao, that just gave me a weird 'stalker' vibe lol.

    I know if you pay for skype or something like that, the skype number comes up, but it constantly changes, so it's not like it's linked to you.

    (One of my friends and his roommate did prank calls to our old highschool pals with this - or so I've been told)

    *69 is a call back code for land lines I believe *70 will block the number but again thats for a land line I dont know if it will work on cell.

    i know you can call your cell phone carrier and request a line block on your number....i dont know if it costs anything though....i think they give you the code if you dont want it blocked on a call by call basis....otherwise every call you make your number is permantely blocked unless you type the code in first to make it show up....

    If you have Sprint, just log into your account and go to the device/number you want to block; go to Change My Services and there is a check box. Costs nothing. This will block all outgoing caller ID. Or you can use Google Voice and just dial out with it. That's what I do, and any incoming calls to that number go straight to VM, and then I get a text ref the VM. Any incoming for my actual carrier number rings through.

    i have always used *67 to block any outbound calls *69 is call back i believe

    *67 is the correct code, I used it just two days ago.

    Or for even more fun...

    On my old blackberry curve I had an application called bluffmycall.

    You could type in the number that you wanted to show up on their caller ID... and if they have that number in their address book it comes up with that persons name and information.

    Now THAT lead to many fun times.
