How To Hide Your Mobile Phone Number When Making Calls
One of the most convenient things about using mobile phones is the simple fact that you know who contacts you. The number is automatically shown when you receive a text message or a call, which makes it easy for you to decide on whether to pick up or ignore the call.
Of course, some people want to keep their phone numbers private, and this little feature isn’t all that great for them. However, with a few simple steps, you will be able to hide your phone number when making calls if you want. Whether you want to keep your number private or play a good prank with your friend, hiding your phone number is a great idea.
All you have to do is to edit your iPhone’s settings. So head straight to the settings option, which you can find on your iPhone’s home screen. Once you have selected the settings option, head to the phone options tab. Under this, you will find a number of options that you can tweak. The ‘Show My Caller ID’ option is what you want to pay special attention to. All you have to do is to turn this option off and you will then be able to make calls without having to show your phone number to the person you are calling. Keeping your phone number hidden from other people you want to contact is actually that simple.
So the next time you need to hide your phone number when you are about to call someone, you know exactly what to do. Note, however, that most people don’t usually answer anonymous calls, so you will sometimes find the caller ID option useful. So, if your friends aren’t exactly picking up your calls, maybe you should switch the caller ID option on again.
