How can I hide my number?
At Orcon, we take customer privacy very seriously. Depending on what you are using, we have a code that you can input before making an outbound call that will hide your number. How great is that?
How to hide your landline number on outgoing calls
The number to dial depends on how your landline is set up:
- If you use our standard phone network (VoIP) and plug your phone into the modem, dial *0197 and then the number you want to call.
- If you use the old school phone network and plug your phone into the wall (a jackpoint), dial 0197 and then the number you want to call.
How to hide your mobile number on outgoing calls
For mobile, simply dial #31# before the number you want to call. Simple right?

Yes, at this stage this is the only way to hide home-line numbers through Orcon.
Unfortunately we do not have another option to offer you at the moment.
It is worth checking the manual/settings on your mobile device as it may have this capability built in!
