    Lex,

    Go to CALL LOGS
    Click your track wheel
    Select OPTIONS
    GENERAL OPTIONS

    Change SHOW CALL NUMBER from YES to NO!

    That's it! Your call number will now be blocked for all out going calls!

    Let us know if this helps or not!!!

    Actually you are both wrong. Show my number only means that your own number appears above your call log (I guess for those that don't remember their number or just changed it.)

    To block your caller ID, you press the green button >> general settings >> set RESTRICT MY IDENTITY >> YES.
    Doesn't matter whether your "show your number" is yes or no.

    If you want to call your friends while your caller ID is blocked...add *31# before the number and it will show your number to your friends or family or anyone you want. I save it for each contact.

    Using BB Pearl: If you have a ringtone associated for that friend..it won't activate if its saved using that format only. What I did was save the original number and then the formatted number in my address book. When you get a call it will activate the associated ringer.

    And blocking out-call display is always carrier dependent.

    If you never want your number to show, call your carrier and have it turned off.

    However, with SMS or MMS your number will always show on the receiving end.
