And could you guide me how can I turn off this function on my Blackberry 8520? I am struggling to dig it from the forum, but I am not able to find it.
Interestingly enough, I have this function automatically on only on Vodafone sim cards, without any clue how to turn it off. It is quite annoying when you call a friend and he doesn`t know who is calling.
i m using a samsung phone bt this option caller ID not working..
You've definitely come to the right place to get your caller ID working. Most phones have a function in settings where you can turn your number display off, which will mean your number will come up as "private" or "blocked" when you make an outgoing call.
We have a great guide to most Samsung phones on our website here, just choose your phone, type "caller ID" into the search box, and click on the instructions to turn your caller ID off and on. I can also walk you through the steps - just let me know the model of the phone you're using, as well as your software version.
If you only wanted to make the odd call with your number as "private" rather than turning it off completely, you can do that by typing #31# in front of the number you want to call.
For example, if you wanted to call 0414141414 with your caller ID turned off, you can call #31#0414141414 and your number will show on the phone as "private" or "blocked".
Let me know if you have any questions about using the code, I'd love to help.
You should be able to make your number private from the call settings menu. You should be able to access it from the dealer, by pressing the menu button and pressing settings. It should be under advanced settings.
