    Hi Millie2010,

    If you have call forwarding activated, then using *73 turns off the Call Forwarding Service. Using Caller ID Per Call Blocking is *67. With Caller ID Per Call Blocking, your name and number are blocked from being displayed to others on a per-call basis. You must press *67 before each call you place, otherwise; your name and phone number is released to the person receiving your call. I recommend testing this before making the call to someone you don't want to see your number. Calls to 911, 800, and 900 numbers cannot be blocked using *67.

    Above are a couple links to our website with helpful information about managing calls and phone features. I hope this information helps you.
