The Motorola Droid from Verizon is a smartphone with many capabilities that normal cell phones do not have. One thing the Droid does share in common with other phones, though, is the "call blocking" feature that blocks your number. Call blocking makes your number appear as "Private" when you call phones that have a caller ID. You can temporarily or permanently set your Droid's outgoing calls to private.
