In most service areas, when you call someone, their caller ID system allows
them to see your name and phone number. Your phone is set to allow this
information to be seen automatically. Before you make a call, you can choose
to block caller ID and prevent the recipient from seeing your name and
phone number.


This feature works on a per-call basis, so you must perform this procedure
before each call where you want to block caller ID.

While roaming, you may not be able to block caller ID.
