[VoIP] How do I block my info from showing up on caller ID?

The Wayne State University phone system allows users to block their Caller ID information when making calls outside of the University.  

 

Users can block their info for an individual call  --or-- all outbound calls.

 

Follow the steps below to manage your Caller ID settings.

 

How to block Caller ID when making a phone call outside of the university

  1. Dial *67 and the phone number you are trying to reach. 
  2. Caller ID will be blocked on the receiving end, instead it will show "Restricted Number"

How to block Caller ID for all outbound calls

  2. Click Outgoing Calls on the left.
