How to make a call with private number

When using giffgaff, do you put 141 before the persons number who your calling so that your number shows as unknown on thier phone?

I've tried 141 and it's not working.

Help!

Re: How to make a call with private number

usually you have to go to call settings and do it that way, theres an option to send number or not, just dialling 141 beforethe number wont work

It's in your settings, but 141 should work. Make sure it's:

Re: How to make a call with private number

As a one off you can use 141, for a more permanent option you would need to go to the phone settings, then called id, it will be set to network settings or something, change it to block my ID. I'm not sure what phone you have so I can't be more specific sorry

No.

 

It's *31# to hide your number, and #31# to release it.

 

Your number will always be revealed when you send an SMS.
