#1

can i hide my number cell or landlin before calling on cell or landline is there any option available like in other countries?


#2

Nop, at least not in any ordinary way....


#3

thought so.....


#4

I still haven't gotten why the cell phone networks haven't enabled this option for the users. Probably to deal with abuse.

Thats one reason, besides whats the point of having a unique number even by a digit when one don’t want to be identified? hiding one’s identity specially in this case must not have a good reason behind.

we humans have names so we can be identified… so we also make things which can be identified in some way or another.

there are security issues, its good that this feature isn't enabled in pakistan. i can only imagine the extreme uproar that'll be created if OUR PPL get the opportunity to hide their identities while making prank calls/harrassing etc.


#7

u can do that if u r in Intelligence Beauru when thr personnel call private number calling flashes on screen instead of any num,


#8

Already there are so many cheap people misusing their phone numbers.. If they would allow this then it would create havoc. Specially for girls :P


#9

I think there is always a risk of misusing anything related to technology but you can leave it because it do bad like internet almost 90% of our internet user are using it for chat or porn but its there because we are getting some other benifits form it and as far as hiding number is concerned one person on orkut once made a call on my number using my number :) he never reveled the trick but it is possible :)

What the VOIP thing?

You should not hide your number. There should be law to show calling number so that people can check using CLI that who is calling.

A wish to hide own number when calling someone means something is sinister otherwise a clean soul doesn't need to hide anything.

Sinner seek for dark corner in night to hide his/her sins. Good people work in daylight as they are not ashamed of their good deeds.

I am very hopeful that we all here are good doers ;)

Fe-Aman Allah.

‘name number’ flashes as numeric on mobile screen, doesn’t it?


#19

You just use the numbers corresponding to the letters in the 'name number,' just like you would dial 111-KFC-KFC... :P

Anyone feeling suddenly hungry?
