    How can my number appear as "Unknown" ?
    My carrier doesn't support to make caller id off and *67 before number doesn't work in my country? and the others codes also.
    in previous iOS, i downloaded toggle for caller id and made it off and the carrier didn't work.
    I tried the whole things on internet ... but in vain

    So how to do that? though SpoofCard? or what?
    I didn't try it and really want to make my number appear as Unknown.. Thanks.

    Just FYI: If you are successful there are services that will unblock your number when it's received. I used to subscribe to one. :)

    I'm always curious as to why anyone would "need" this feature.

    I guess the traditional method is blocked? Have you tried your phone settings? Maybe your carrier blocks it but you can still tamper with it through your phone #

    Settings -> Phone -> Show My Called ID

    Carrier specific maybe.

    The only reason I could see for needing the feature would be to hide your identity if, for example, you are trying to call an ex-girlfriend who has told you to stop calling. I find it hard to see a legit reason for hiding.

    Possibly due to having only one line for personal and work. You don't want those who you call out to for work purposes to have your number and call you at all hours.

    Its hilariously sad how a guy can't ask a question about a feature without a horde of armchair detectives questioning his motives. Just drop it.

    Simething like that can certainly be a possibility. Aside from perhaps no other option working, using another service like Google Voice or even Skype to make a call when needed might do the trick for needs of that sort.

    Why should the OP have to set up a whole different number with a different service if there was an app or some kind of toggle available? He simply asked a question. He was being given the 3rd degree and I offered a somewhat reasonable situation that something like that would be necessary.

    Dude he is giving options. Why are YOU giving him the 3rd degree? There is little info that he is given.

    How to appear as unknown?


    I didn't give anyone the third degree. I was simply asking from the OP's perspective. Why should he have to set up a new service if the functionality exists elsewhere? Whether it be a toggle of some kind or whatever. Anyway, his suggestion doesn't really help the OP if the situation I described rings true. If he calls via google voice, they now have his google voice number and can call at any time to that number.

    I just found it ridiculous how the accusations flew in from at least two posters before I replied in a comment directly to one of them.

    And I further expanded on the situation you brought up with a potential workaround for a situation if that type if no actual toggle or app is available (as there might not be one). So the issue with that is...what again? :confused:

    People are considerably less likely to answer a call from an unknown number.

    What country? What network?
    *67 works in the USA and Italy but other countries use different vertical service codes, without knowing where you are it is very difficult to give meaningful advice.

    I found a solution, I don't know if is it working or not?
    App called "SpoofCard" from App Store does the Job with paid service of course, is it fake or does it really work?
    and another one in cydia called "voice changer" i don't know if it has an update for ios 7 or not...
    Did anyone try one of these?
    fake or real?

    If you told us which country you are in we could probably tell you the code that works in your country, but if you would rather pay for an app that's fine.

    You may want to check the JB forum for JB apps. But I'd say pony up the $9.95 and give SpoofCard a try.

    It's not even available in the UK store. Hope it works where he is...
