    Is there a setting on my Note 4 under Android 6.0.1that would allow me to block my number from being seen on another phone? I believe *67 works manually on a call by call basis or I can edit a single contact by editing the number again with *67 prior to the area code. Looking for a setting that will do this for all my contact numbers as well as random outgoing calls.

    Don't seem to have it. I'm using Sprint as my carrier.

    Some carriers won't allow you to block your caller ID from the phone app settings. You may have to do that on the carriers website or call them.

    I just got off of a chat with my carrier (Verizon). Blocking your number is NOT prohibited by any of the carriers. SAMSUNG changed software recently and that feature is no longer available. That sucks big time on the part of Samsung and I may write to them for what good it will do. BUT ... you can contact your carrier to see if they have an alternate way to block your number. Verizon told me to dial *67 and then the number. I copied and pasted from my Verizon chat conversation below. Hope that helps.

    I do see that Samsung has made modifications to their software which does not allow this feature any more. I do apologize, from the resources I do have available to me, there is not a description as to why they made this decision and when it did start, however, there is another alternative to blocking your caller id : ) When you dial a number you can dial *67 and then the ten digit number and press send, this will block your caller id.
