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.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press "*67" on your mobile phone's keypad.

  2. 2

    Enter the 10-digit number of the party you are calling and press "Send" or the green "Phone" key.

  3. 3

    Wait for the party to answer. Press the "End" key to disconnect the call at the end of the conversation.

Tips and warnings

  • The special code "*67" must be used each time you want to hide your mobile number.
