The quickest and simplest way of making your cell phone number to appear as private is to use a call blocking service. This can be done in the United States by simply dialing *67 in your phone before the number that you want to get in touch with. Hence, instead of dialing 123456789, you would be dialing 67123456789. By changing the number in your contacts to 67123456789 then you will be able to get in touch with them by whatever means without them knowing who is getting in touch.

Indeed, many people use this service and other methods to block their number as they prefer to keep their number private. Continue with the steps I am outlining and you should easily be able to achieve this for yourself.

By using the method above, all correspondence from you will simply be known as 'Private'.

You could also try checking all the settings that are available on your mobile phone. On many cell phones out there, there are settings that allow the users to hide their number and make it private for every call or any correspondence that they make. Simply enter all the different settings pages on your phone and see what's on offer. You could even Google the model of your phone and see if anybody else knows of any onboard and built-in settings that will allow yourself to make your phone hidden.

If you can't figure out how to do it then it could be something to do with your model of phone or your network provider. Get in touch with your phone provider over the telephone by obtaining their number over the Internet and ask them what you can do to go about this. They will no doubt be able to assist you in making your number private.

I found a cool tool to keep my texts private.
It's a mobile app called SafeBox that is like having a secret space inside of your cellphone. You can send and receive private text messages very easily. It allows you to create a secret list of contacts and simply text privately inside of this circle of trust.
You can download it for free from the safebox.mobi website and from like getjar.com app store.

No its not possible making a number private all by yourself. It is strictly a CSP (cellular service provider) right. Customers do not enjoy this right. However you can ask your CSP to make your number private but again it is a policy dependent matter.

Just for everyones information there is a company that has been started and will be up and running in about a week for PRIVATE TEXTING AND CALLING that you will never have to worry about a text or call coming in at the wrong time EVER!!! All cell phone companies have already approved our service for us to use them so we can provide this service to all cell phone customers. This service will have a monthly fee that will not show up on your cell phone bill and just to inform you the cell phone company you are with has nothing to do with this service so if you ask them they will have no clue. I will inform you when it is up and running.
