    The instructions given for Andriod 8.1.0 do not work. I just tested it and those settings don’t do anything to withhold or hide your number when calling someone else, they just stop other people’s Caller ID etc being displayed when people call you.

    In the UK you can put 141 at the beginning of the number you’re calling and that does hide your number (again, I just tested to check).
