Caller ID Blocking Per Call is designed to ensure that your name and number are marked "Private" or "Anonymous" each time you activate this feature before placing a call.

To use Caller ID Blocking Per Call:

  1. Lift the receiver and listen for the dial tone.
  2. Press *67.
  3. When you hear a second dial tone, dial the number you wish to call.
  4. Your name and number will be blocked for the current call only. 

Note: Caller ID Blocking Per Call may not be available on some calls, including calls to E911
