How to Change Your Caller id on Android and Blackberry Phones

Sometimes, it seems like the person we are calling is not interested in picking our call and this can be so annoying especially when there is an urgent issue to discuss.

This is a character that is mostly displayed by ladies when their Boyfriends hurt them. You keep calling and they keep refusing to pick-up and as a result, we may ask for ways through which we can call without them knowing who is actually calling.

I will discuss 2 ways through which this can be achieved.

Restrict your caller identity Such that all the receiver sees is "Restricted Number" Or "Private Number" Or "Unknown caller"

Method 1: CODE METHOD
This is done by dialing a special code next to the number you want to call.
simply dial #31#Number and SEND

MEANING.... If you wanted to call a person whose number is 08011121234 without exposing your caller identity, simply dial #31#08011121234, press the dial button and wait till the person picks the call.


METHOD 2: SETTING METHOD.
I will use a Samsung android device as a case study here,
so if you use an android device, follow these steps 

Press the dial button (Touch the icon)
Select "Call settings"
Locate "Additional settings"
Tap the "Caller ID
Select "Hide number"

DONE!!!

BLACKBERRY USERS CAN DO THESE.
press "Send button"
press the "Menu button"
scroll to "Options"
select "In-Call settings"
scroll to "Restrict My identity"
change it to "Always"
DONE!!!

Now you can test this by dialing any mobile number near you and tell me what you see.!
