How about an option to add a list of numbers (in the Ooma Lounge) for which caller ID will be blocked or unblocked (plus of course the default setting for all other numbers). Then when you make a call, if the call is in your list, the correct choice is made automatically, and all other numbers get the correct default setting as well.
Of course, *82 or *67 should still override the setting for an individual call.
The page in the Ooma lounge could look like this:
This would be very useful because my main reason for blocking outbound caller ID is that I don't want to give out my phone number to everyone I call, but if I am calling someone that has my number, I would like them to know who is calling. This is especially the case if I am calling someone that has anonymous call rejection, who I don't mind giving my number.Display or block caller ID on outbound calls to the following numbers:
You may override settings for an individual call by dialing *67 or *82.
Code: Select all
Number Send ID Block ID 310-555-1212 x O 212-555-1234 x O All Other Numbers O x
Warning: Caller ID is always provided to the recipient of toll free calls and 911 calls.
