Blocking Cell Phone Number From Seen in Caller IDs


Freinds after reading this article you will be able to block your cell phone number from showing up on other people's caller IDs. It's very simple to block your cell phone number. You have two options: you can permanently block your phone number or you can block your number on a call by call basis.


Blocking Your Cell Phone Number Permanently:


The most permanent solution is to request a "line block" from your cell phone carrier.

1) To do this you simply need to call the customer service for your specific provider and they can block your number. When you do this your number will never show up to anyone.

2) To call your customer service to block your cell phone number, just dial 611 from your cell phone and you will reach them.


3) If there is a situation where you want your number to show up, you will still have an option. When you have a permanent block on your cell phone number you will need to dial *82 before dialing the number you are calling. When you do this your phone number will show up just once for that specific call. Ex: *82 (555) 555-5555.


Blocking Your Cell Phone Number Temporarily:


Sometimes you may want to block you number for a specific call. You might not want someone to know that you are trying to reach them for the 15th time in a row, or you might be calling a business and might not want them to know your number.

1) If you want to block your cell phone number on a call by call basis you need to dial *67 before dialing the number. Ex *67 (555) 555-5555.

2) When you do this you will not have any feedback that it worked. If you want to test this, just call your home phone, or anther phone that has a caller ID from your cell to confirm that your phone number is blocked.


NOTE:One important thing to remember is that your number will not be blocked from emergency services or any toll free numbers.

Hi,


It is really mind boggling and annoying when we receive phone calls from unlisted or suspect phone numbers.

I am aware of a site that allows one to investigate unknown or suspect phone numbers that aren't listed in the phone book (reverse cell phone & unlisted number lookup tools & techniques). It is http://www.backgroundrecordsregistry.com

It is really worth a visit.

Just a thought,

-Chris

Hmm..

Phone Calls from Unlisted numbers - there's nothing scarier than that.

In my experience on the World Wide Web, I have come across a nice site that has the ability to trace cell phone numbers very well. The site has excellent reverse lookup features too.
