Blocking Your Cell Phone Number Permanently:
The most permanent solution is to request a "line block" from your cell phone carrier.
- To do this you simply need to call the customer service for your specific provider and they can block your number. When you do this your number will never show up to anyone.
- To call your wireless customer service to block your cell phone number, just dial 611 from your cell phone and you will reach them.
- If there is a situation where you want your number to show up, you will still have an option. When you have a permanent block on your cell phone number you will need to dial *82 before dialing the number you are calling. When you do this your phone number will show up just once for that specific call. Ex: *82 (555) 555-5555.
