How to Hide My Mobile Number

Updated March 23, 2017

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.
