Most times, you wish to utilize the possibility of being able to call with an ‘’Unknown caller ID’’ on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus. If you indeed make a call with the suppressed phone number, then the recipient contact will not be able to view your caller ID on the display.
Instead, it displays ‘’private number’’ or ‘’unknown caller’’ on the screen. If you wish to make a call on your Galaxy S8 with a hidden caller ID, follow the below guidelines.
Go to the Dialer app and then hit on the “More’’ icon on the upper right side of your screen. A pop-up menu appears. Select on ‘’Settings’’ and hit on ‘’other settings’’ on the next menu. An entry ‘’your phone number’’ appears. When you press on it, you will have the options
- Hide number
- Network standard
- Show number
Choose ‘’hide number’’. Your selection will be sent directly to your mobile operator. For all calls made from then on, your caller ID will not be displayed which basically means that you will be calling with a suppressed number on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.
