- Open your Phone app. If you wish to hide your phone number from one person while calling them, you can enter a couple of numbers before the rest of the phone number to mask your Caller ID.
- Type *67 .
- Type the rest of the number you wish to dial.
- Make your call.
Does * 67 still work?
Actually, it’s more like *67 (star 67) and it’s free. Dial that code before the phone number, and it will temporarily deactivate caller ID. On the receiving end, caller ID will usually display “private number” because it has been blocked. Once it’s done, your phone number will never appear, no matter who you call.
How do you find out the number of an unknown caller?
Once the number is unblocked, you will see it on your Caller ID screen. Contact your telephone company and inform them that you are getting unknown calls. You may be asked to note the date and the exact time of the calls so it can trace the caller. You may also be asked for your name and phone number.
How can I hide my phone number when making a phone call?
To block your number from being displayed temporarily for a specific call:
- Enter *67.
- Enter the number you wish to call (including area code).
- Tap Call. The words “Private,” “Anonymous,” or some other indicator will appear on the recipient’s phone instead of your mobile number.
Can you find out a no caller ID number?
“No Caller ID” is typically what you’ll see on the caller ID for a blocked call on an iPhone, but other phones may use a different term in the caller ID. Because the people they call won’t see their caller ID or possess the ability to call them back, they think they won’t get caught.
