    This means you have to go into the SETTINGS menu every time. If you
    simply put 141 before the number, it the caller ID is still sent!!!!

    Are you sure this is a 'fault' with the handset and not the network?

    Try #31#. That's the normal way to do it on mobile phones.
    e.g. dial: #31#01234567890

    Yes - that works a treat -- thank you.

    It's still a bit fiddly to add. ( I suppose you could create a
    separate entry for certain contacts and just replace the number with
    #31#07775555555 and call it 'other' )

    Perhaps I could write an Applescript to go through the address book
    and to this automatically for each entry. (I just need to learn
    applescript first)

    4 keys instead of 3.

    Unless the iPhone works very differently from other phones that's really the
    only quick way to do it with either 141 or #31#.

    How were you trying to do it with 141?

    There's no quick way of doing it. I tapped 141 into the keypad (and
    read the number from a piece of paper)

    Nokia phones allow you to 'edit before dial'. This is useful: you can
    just move the cursor to the start of the number and enter either 141
    or #31# and then press the green/dial button.

    Thankfully it is quite rare that I need to withhold my caller ID.

    Why are you trying to with hold your number from people in your
    address book?

    Sony Ericssons have similar too.

    I vaguely remember an older phone of mine having an option to "dial while
    witholding number" instead of normally dialling. I wonder what happened to
    that?
