    With Sprint, I had to call CS and have them set my number to show up as private. If you only want to do this with certain calls, then press *67 then dial the number. This will block you number for that call only.

    If you want your number to show up as PRIVATE when you make a call, then you need to call your customer service and have them set it up that way. If you only want to block your number when making certain calls then press *67 then dial the number. Understand now?

    Click the green talk button to bring your call log up. Then click the blackberry button to bring up the menu. Click options open general options and select restrict my identity to yes.

    Yep, that too. I guess it all depends on what you are trying to do.

    hey everyone, i'm new to the forum and fixing to get my first Blackberry. Just waiting on the Bold to release in the U.S. This was a question I had, but still have another question. If you restrict your ID as listed above, does your ID still show up to the people in your contacts. Is there a way to hide your ID from everyone but your contacts? thanks in advance for any help in this matter. This forum has been a lot of help in my decision to switch to a Blackberry.

    I don't think there is a way for just your contact's to see your number.

    You can do a reverse caller id unblock. So you set your account to always block your phone number to all callers then in your phonebook add *84 (i think that's the code) in front of all your phone numbers you want your caller ID to show.

    You shady stackers! J/k

    I personally think *67 is the best option unless most of your calling is to be private. Then I would go with jonesjj's advice. This way you don't have to type in the blocking code each time.

    Also to confirm, if you do go through the options and "restrict your identity" your id will not show up regardless of whether or not they are in your contact list.

    Hope all this helps.
    :)
