    Hello,

    I just got a Samsung Sync, 707, branded Cingular. I am using my cingular sim and have totally fullfilled my contract.

    I have tried star (*67) and that doesn't work, tried going to the menu where the phone settings are and "hide" my caller ID and the call won't go through.

    Does anyone have a solution? I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    DR

    Re: Blocking Caller ID

    Calling line identity
    Outgoing CLI Release (recipient sees your number)
    Release: *31# destination [SEND]
    Withhold: #31# destination [SEND]
    Query default: *#31#[SEND]

    Incoming CLI Presentation (you see the caller's number)
    Allow: *30#[SEND]
    Prevent: #30#[SEND]
    Query default: *#30#[SEND]

    Earl, thanks, but I guess I am really stupid here.. what do you mean "send" where is that?
    Also, having all kinds of problems getting the stupid thing to quit trying to fill in a word when I do the first letter..This is not a user friendly phone, not compared to my motorola v635! Thanks for your help though, I am trying to learn it.

    Earl, uh duh, I think I figured it out.. but, now the problem is when I hit the pound or star key, I just get a space.. so, how do I access the pound and star key? Thanks, DR

    Earl, Thanks for the links.

    I called AT&T and they said that they do NOT recognize the #31#. So, I don't know what their problem is.

    I have tried to send a text using *67 and the phone said "sent" but it was not in the sent folder, so, who knows. The merger with Cingular and AT&T is a mess.

    Thanks though.

    I do not believe you can block the Calling Line Identification on a text message, if that is what you are trying to do. You can only block the Calling Line ID on voice calls.

    It works on my phone. You have to be on the dialing screen and not the text message screen.

    Yes, that is what I am trying to do.. I am trying to send something to an old friend and I don't want him to know it's coming from me.

    Send it from an email account such as Hotmail, Yahoo or Google Mail. You can use anything you want in the From box when you create the account.
