If you are calling someone you don't know or trust with your information, you can block your caller ID to prevent them from seeing your phone number--but your call may not go through. Some networks won't allow calls from blocked caller ID numbers, and many people will not answer calls from unidentified callers. You can re-enable your caller ID--and display your information to the people you call--from the call options menu on your on your BlackBerry Curve 8310 handset.

Tips and warnings
- Not every mobile phone company will allow you to change your caller ID settings from your BlackBerry handset. Some block that option and require that you allow them to do it from their network settings. However, if you blocked your phone number from appearing on the receiver's caller ID from your handset, you can usually unblock it from your handset as well.
