      Witholding my own number ??

      My calls are with Sky & line rental with BT. I believe that Sky offer the service of permanantly witholding my telephone number on outgoing calls. Can anyone tell me how i go about activating this service please ??

      Give Sky Talk a call on 08442 414141.

      In the mean time, dialling '141' before any number will hide your own.

      When Caller ID is blocked at the caller's request, the number is actually transmitted through the entire telephone network, with the "presentation withheld" flag set so that it comes up as WITHHELD at the destination. The caller's number is still present in the call data though, so presumably that would enable your 0844 number provider to give you that service.
