Hiding your mobile number when you place a call can help to maintain your privacy. Without doing so, when calls are placed from your mobile phone to caller ID-equipped phones, your caller information is displayed. Caller information that may be displayed includes your name and mobile number. You can use a special code to hide your number on a per-call basis. There is no charge for using the code.
