    x 2 (I have the same question).

    I know you can have Sprint block your caller ID for all outgoing calls (if you call Sprint they can set your phone on their server to not give out your number to others when you call them) but I'm wondering if there is a way to set your phone on a call by call basis.

    In other words, I would like people I call to get my number but would like the option of punching in a code and preventing this for certain calls.

    Anyone know of such a code?

    *67 followed by number. Works for landline and cell phones.

    Bummer. GSM TREOS had a few more options

    I don't know if CDMA has any more options, that's just the one that I know of that easily blocks one call at a time...

    Takephone Allows Call ID Blocking Automatically and is programmable to allow ID to be sent when needed.

    On Sprint -

    Go into the phone app - Dial Preferences.
    Check the Dialing from North America checkbox.
    On the blank line before "to 7 digit numbers" add *67 or *67 & your area code, and then check the box.

    The only caveat is that this will only block caller ID on 7-digit numbers.

    Anybody else have a problem (or solution) for typing the " * " into the line as described by HandyDJs.com?

    i can get the 67; but it won't allow the asterisk

    Well, perhaps I spoke too soon - I can't enter the # or the * on the 7-digit prefix line. I now have the original Treo 700p Sprint 1.10 firmware as my 700 was recently replaced. I am wondering if different firmware might allow those characters to be entered. Hmmm.

    This is kind of a pain, but it will work: If you make a call through the Sprint voicemail system your ID will not show on the callers phone. It comes up unknown ID.

    So what you do is call into your voice mail, in the main menu select 8, you are then prompted to key in the number followed by #and your set. The pain is that you need to dial the number manually(remember those days)? You cannot dial from your contacts list.

    You could also try CallCard from shsh. Instead of a calling card you will do the *67

    *67 doesn't work on 1-800 #s and cable phone. Does the Sprint or takephone block work for these?

    I know someone already answered this and its true. If you call Sprint, they can set it up so that all of your calls are private. And the *67 works at least on the Treo 755P to block your number on individual calls.
