Have you ever received a call from a number that shows up as “No Caller ID”? Or maybe you want to call someone, but you don’t want them to see your number. If you have an iPhone, you’re in luck because there are several ways to hide your number when calling someone. In this post, we will discuss these methods, and you can choose the one that works best for you.
Method 1: Disable Caller ID
The first method is the easiest, and it works well if you want to disable Caller ID permanently. Simply go to the Settings app on your iPhone, scroll down to “Phone,” and tap on “Show My Caller ID.” If it’s turned on (green), your number will be shown to the recipient. If it’s turned off (gray), your number will be hidden, and the recipient will see “No Caller ID” instead.
Method 2: Dial *67 before the number
If you want to hide your number for a specific call only, you can use the dial code “*67” before the number. This method works well, but it’s not practical if you want to hide your number frequently. Dial *67 before the number you want to call, and your number will be hidden for that call only.
Method 3: Save the number with *67
If you want to call someone frequently and hide your number every time, you can save the number with “*67” in front of it. When you call this number from your contacts, your number will be hidden automatically.
Method 4: Contact your Carrier
If none of the above methods work for you, you can contact your carrier and ask them to hide your Caller ID. Most carriers have a feature that allows you to manage your account online, and you can disable Caller ID from there. If you’re not sure how to do it, contact your carrier’s customer service, and they will guide you through the process.
In conclusion, if you want to hide your number when calling someone, you have several options. You can disable Caller ID permanently, use the dial code “*67” before the number, save the number with “*67” in front of it, or contact your carrier to disable Caller ID. Choose the method that works best for you, and enjoy making anonymous calls.
