Can't hide My Number displaying on call screen.

Hi,

 

Everytime I make a call, on the display (top) it shows My Number: followed by my mobile number. I remember, one could disable this earlier, but I have just upgraded to OS 10.2 and just can find the option where to hide the same. 

 

Please note this is NOT me trying to Restrict displaying my number for outgoing calls. It's only to hide "My Number:xxxxxxxxxxxxx" on the screen display when I make a call.

 

Any help would be grateful.

Hello akshaychadha,

 

Depending on your mobile service provider, this option cannot be disabled.

 

Thank you,

This seems rediculous to me that a facility in a phones software cannot be disabled and why does it have to cover the top of a picture that I've assigned to a contact!!

Re: Can't hide My Number displaying on call screen.

Dear Fozzie,

 

Please read my post again. I'm not talking about the network showing my number on someone else's device when i call. It's the display on my phone which displays my own number on my device everytime I make a call. The earlier OS had an option of disabling that, which has dissapeared now.

Hi Fozzie, I'm with akshaychadha on this one.

 

What is the point of showing my own number, at the expense of covering up the top of the picture.

 

Please explain it's purpose other than to be a pain in the backside.

 

If you don't enter your own number in the specified field, why doesn't it hide?
