conceal telephone number

Postby curatokid » Tue Feb 02, 2010 11:23 pm

My home telephone is ex directory but when I make a call to a "user ID" phone they obtain the number, is there any way I can dial a prefix or some way that will not display my number ????

Not sure if you mean UK or Spain - probably Spain, in which case, sorry, I've no idea :thumbdown:

I rarely answer calls from withheld numbers. It is usually someone trying to sell something but genuine international calls can sometimes show as a private number. If my landline shows a private number calling I just switch on the answerphone and see who it is before answering.

Beachy lad, where did you buy that machine from?, I want one.
It would stuff the people who ring up in a disguised voice if you could see them :thumbup: :think:

Does #31# work for texts too, or just calls from a mobile ?
