CallerID ("CID") Blocking on a per Call basis

Great Citizen / Super Citoyen

If, like most of us, you allow our telephone number to be presented to the people we call; however, every now and then you may want to block your CID on either a "per call" or "per contact" basis. Here's the simple how to.


For these examples, the full, 10-digit number to be called is "416-555-1234".


CASE 1. For a per call, one shot from the dial pad, prefix the 10 digit telephone as follows:




CASE 2. For a per stored contact, go to (navigate to) the specific contact in your contacts app. In edit mode, in their telephone number field, prefix their stored telephone number as follows.




Save per your contact app procedure/sequence.


Now when you dial this specific person/contact, the #31# will block your CID to the prefixed number. If you have multiple number for this person/contact, then EACH number must be prefixed and saved with the prefix in place.


CASE 3. For numbers needing "1" prefix.




should also work.


CASE 4. For numbers needing "+".


Results may vary. It depends on your dialer app.


Happy dialing.

Some subscribers block their own callerID ("CID") for all their calls; however, it is sometimes desirable or necessary to override your block-all and unblock (show) your CID on a per call or per contact basis.  For example, you block all calls, but you want your Mom to see that it is you.


For the following examples the outbound number ("Mom") being called is "416-555-1234".


CASE 1. Per call from the dial pad. Prefix the number as follows.




For this one shot call, the person receiving your call WILL SEE YOUR CID.


CASE 2. Per a stored contact.


In your contacts app, navigate to the desired contact. Enter EDIT mode and move to the telpehone number field. Prefix the stored number as follows.




Save per your contact app's procedures. Now, whenever you dial this number of this specific contact from memory, this contact WILL SEE YOUR CID.



Happy dailing.
