    Per-call blocking - To block your phone number and name from appearing on a recipient's Caller ID unit on a single phone call, dial *67 before dialing the number.

    This is essentially what the Restrict My Identity option does. But using *67 can be usefull. For instance, you don't want a specific person to have your phone number, you can add *67 to their entry in the address book.

    Of course, some people you call, like those nice folks at the police station, don't care if you have blocking or not, they get your number anyway. Also, I seem to remember from a long time ago that call ID blocking does not work for 1-800 numbers. Can someone confirm that?

    I think sometimes on landlines they do, or used to, usually everything's all inclusive now. But I've used it on my BB many times and never noticed anything weird on my phone bill. I'm with TMO.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~caller I'd blocking doesn't work for 800 numbers. I used yo program voicemail software and that was one thing that surprised me.

    i have always used *67 and *82 but it did not work for me with tmobile... so i hit 611 on my phone and asked them. that is what they told me *31# to unblock my number. it has been working ever since. i dont know why mine would be different unless it is a location thing.
