    Dial *67 and the number. It will block the call.

    You can also do it in your BlackBerry Phone app settings. Go to the phone, then options - General Settings - then change the "Restrict my Identity" setting to Always. Then change it back after your done.
    But as you can see, *67 is the easist.

    I just tried it and it doesn't work for me. Is it because I have BES? Also, when I go to General Settings, I don't have the "restrict my identity" option - it's just not there!

    the other thing you can do is enter *67 in your phone book for each caller you want to be restricted from... that way you dont have to dial it each time.

    Push your green phone button, then scroll up to the area where you type the phone number. Then, push the Blackberry button (left of the trackball), then go to "Options", "General Options" and you will find it there.

    Ohhhhhhh.......thanks, Kaleb's Dad! I was trying to get at it from the Options (wrench symbols). This will come in handy when I call my 16-year-old's cell phone. He sometimes won't answer when he sees it's me or he'll answer in some odd accent just to waste my time!

    I believe your carrier charges you each time you do this?

    I've never received a charge from AT&T for doing this. Other carriers may charge but I have never heard of them doing so.

    ID blocking is free on all carriers I have used in the past. Not saying it is free on every carrier but the ones I have used are. Be it land line or cell.
