Full Answer

The *67 method of phone number blocking is activated by dialing *67 before dialing a number to be called. For example, to call the number (555) 555-5555 without having the calling number featured on caller ID, the caller would dial *67 (555) 555-5555. However, some secure corporate and government phone numbers cannot be called using the *67 method, and the call will be rejected by these numbers
