Re: How can I block and unblock my caller ID?

Why can't you just say dial *67 then your number? Why make me click on a link that may not work someday?

 

Sheesh.

Because there's more explanatory information on the help pages. Also, this way they know that there are help pages that they can consult to find additional information.

 

Was it really necessary to resurrect a 2-year-old thread for this?

Sure was.

 

That's exactly the point - when someone needs this info, to send them to a link that will probably not work someday is not helpful.

It's a tradeoff. My answer was more useful then, but may become useless some day. I think that's better than a less informative answer that works forever.

 

I could have gotten the best of both worlds by copying the help pages in their entirety into my answer, but that's more work than I felt like doing.

 

I'm volunteering my time here, I think it's presumptuous of you to give me a hard time because my style of answering doesn't meet your standards.

OK *67 is used to block which is the actual number to unblock a phone number of someone that I blocked.
