    Hi All,

    I want to know - how can I hide my phone no while sending a text
    message ?

    I know I can do so for a voice call by prefixing the called no by 141
    e.g. by calling 14107788111222 instead of 07788111222. However, when I
    try to do the same for text messages, 'SMS send failure' occurs. I
    tried this with two different handsets on two different networks but
    got same problem.

    Another Q - Say I ask my network to permanently hide my phone no (for
    caller id). Can someone pls confirm that using 141 prefix for voice
    calls will unhide my no for that call ?

    thanks,
    Jan

    if you have your number permanently withheld you need to dial 1470
    (07788111222). Or *31# (07788111222) (#31# before withholds the number)

    Can't do if for texts though
