Sometimes there’s a genuine need to call someone and prevent your phone number from being displayed. Perhaps you’ve received a call from a number you don’t recognise, and you want to call back to check who it is without revealing your number. You can do this on both your home phone and mobile phone.
There’s two methods of hiding your number from being displayed – either on a call by call basis, or permanently.
For mobile phones, most phones include a “show my caller ID” settings in the settings, which you can turn off. For an iPhone, this is located in Settings > Phone > Show My Caller ID. For Android phones, this is located in Phone > Settings > Call Settings > More Settings > Caller ID (or similar).
For home phones, we can hide your number when you call others permanently. We’ll also block your details so that your name, phone number and address are not published in the White Pages directory or on directory assistance services. A $2.93 monthly fee applies.
Please do contact us if you’d like to set this up.
