Star Code - *67 for outbound caller id blocking

*67 is a calling feature that allows you to hide your phone number when making calls. When you dial *67 before a phone number, your caller ID is blocked, and the person you are calling will see "Blocked," "Private," or "Unknown" on their caller ID instead of your actual phone number.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use *67:

Pick up your phone and listen for a dial tone.

Dial *67 on your phone's keypad.

After dialing *67, wait for a second or two, then enter the phone number you want to call, including the area code.

Hit the "call" button as you would normally.

Your call will be placed, and the person you are calling will not see your phone number displayed on their caller ID.

Note that *67 does not work for emergency services, toll-free numbers, or some international numbers. Also, some phone carriers may charge an additional fee for using the *67 feature.

Using *67 can be useful in situations where you want to keep your phone number private, such as making a business call from your personal phone, or when you don't want someone to be able to call you back directly.

However, it's important to use *67 responsibly and not for illegal or unethical purposes, such as making harassing phone calls or prank calls. If you receive unwanted calls from someone using *67, you can report it to your phone carrier or the police.
