For privacy reasons, you may want to hide your mobile number when calling a phone that is equipped with caller ID. Caller ID-equipped phones display caller information such as the name and phone number of the party calling. If you are concerned about your number's being displayed, you can use a special code to hide your caller information on a per-call basis. There is no charge for using the code to hide your number.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Enter "*67" followed by the 10-digit number of the party you are calling on your mobile phone's keypad.

  2. 2

    Press the "Send" key to dial the party.

  3. 3

    Wait for the person to answer the phone and begin the conversation. Press the "End" key to disconnect the call when the conversation ends.

Tips and warnings

  • The "*67" code must be dialled each time you want to block your number.
  • Depending on your mobile carrier, you may be able to subscribe to caller ID block. The feature blocks your caller information on a permanent basis.
