To block your name and number from being displayed when you make a call, follow these steps:
- Dial *67.
- Listen for 3 beeps.
- Dial the number you want to reach.
After following these steps, the person you're calling will see “Private Name/Private Number” on his or her phone display. This feature, called Call Display Blocking, is offered free for Cogeco customers.
