Withholding your phone number and name
The caller's name appears on the display even if the name is not stored in your phone address book. You can withhold your phone number or name if you do not wish your interlocutor to see them displayed. You will appear as an anonymous caller to those you call.
When you phone somebody or are receiving a phone call, your telephone number will appear on the display of the person you are talking to. You can prevent this by suppressing your identification.
