Is there a way to block outgoing calls on a cell phone so the number does not appear on caller id? I have been told you can do that, but it hasn't worked for me.....

TIA!

    I think you need to call your cell company (Verizon, Cingular, or whomever) and tell them you want your number unlisted - be specific that you want it to show as "Restricted Number".

    It all depends on your provider but T-Mobile has that option in the "call" settings. It says "send my caller ID" and you can have it set to network default, yes or no to block it when you call others.

    I think you can use the old *67 before the number that you are calling if you just want to block a certain number.

    I think that only works on land lines, and not cell phones. My new cell has an option to block the caller id, but I have to chose it for each call I make.

    I've used this on a cell phone. I would test it first (I always mix up *82 and *67)
