I want to stop my caller ID from displaying. But I want to do it once in a while-like when I call a company to ask about a product. I don’t want that company to have my number. This was 2 clicks on my Apple 3g (yep-I was seriously overdue for an upgrade!)
I searched on my brand new Note 2 and didn’t see a setting for it. So many settings it the Note 2! It can be overwhelming, but the geek in me loves the freedom!
I was in a hurry, so I called AT&T and spoke with a rep. She asked if I wanted to block my Caller ID at the network level. No! No! No! That just smells like trouble. And I am sure a fee was involved (SIDENOTE:one of many,many,many ways the telcos screw you is by charging you to suppress your caller ID. At least that is how it is on landlines,if anyone still has them.(But I have to say AT&T has been great for me for 10 years and counting).
Anyway the lady said she thinks there is a an app that will block my caller id.
Anyone know of this app? Or is there a setting I am missing (I am a geek, but a brand new babe when it comes to Android)
I know about Do Not Call,but I don’t want to escalate to that level. And besides there are so many loopholes in the Do Not Call law that it is useless. A major one is that telemarketers may have a caller id from Dallas,Texas;but in fact they are calling from India. And India isn’t in America and doesn’t have to comply with American Do Not Call Laws.
If anyone knows of this app, I would appreciate any response. Thanks in advance!February 24, 2013 at 2:29 am #785Galaxy NoteMember
Yes, it is possible. In Note 2, you may follow these steps:
1. launch your “phone” app
2. tap the menu button (left button)
3. call settings–additional settings–caller ID
Please note this function also depends on your carrier. Some carriers (especially in Asia) may ask for additional fees for the freedom (sending or not sending caller ID).February 24, 2013 at 4:17 pm #786AnonymousInactive
