    How to hide your phone number when calling from your office phone?

    Normally, I dial 9 then the number to call outside calls. But I have to call some psycho about a bike sale, and I tried *67, 9 or 9, *67 and neither worked.

    Anyone know how to do this?

    *67, 9 won't work because you need to be on an outside line in order to use *67.

    I have no idea why 9, *67 won't work, though. How do you know it doesn't work? You aren't calling inside your own bike shop to test it, are you? Because that might cause something funny with the *67, like computer data routing inside its own network acts differently, even if the connection initially went outside the network (i.e. to an external IP) and came back in.

    You could try one of those internet phone services. That way he can't call you back.

    .. and don't call me psycho.

    I did try 9, *67; no luck of course. This is not my shop, but rather my big office phone system, and I wasn't even able to find a manual on how to program the buttons.

    More often then not on a office phone system your personal number won't be displayed. Usually the trunking number will come up, have you checked to see if you number shows up on outside lines?

    It depends on your PABX or whatever calling system you have in place. Some will do it, others won't. Actually most will but it has to be enabled.
