    Does anyone know if there is an app for the iphone that when dialing a phone number a option will pop up saying 'Show caller ID' or 'Do not show caller ID'?

    It's a pain having to go into the settings to make this change every time you make a call.

    I've never messed around with those Phone settings but this seems like a reasonable place to ask the question...

    So this 'Show My Caller ID' option, if it's on OFF when I call someone it'll show up as 'Unknown'?

    Is there an extra fee associated with this?

    Wouldn't it be more of a pain to have it always ask you "Show your caller ID" " Yes/No"

    So you'd like an option to press something every time you make a call so you won't have to press something some of the times you make a call? People are...interesting.

    If you dial #67 before the phone number you are calling it will automatically block your caller ID.

    I work in a field where I make several calls to people from blocked numbers, but I also make calls to family/friends. So almost every time I make a call I have to go into sttings to check/change show caller ID.

    Just thought when I hit the 'call' button a 2nd popup would be nice just saying 'show', dont show'

    Yes, it would be a pain IMO.
    If you want to do it just for calling a certain person or 2 then go in and change it.
