    Dear,
    It is not possible.
    You can not do this.
    In only one condition it is possible that you number is saved as Private Number in other device.

    You can do that under the Contacts Settings, but Only certain type of Mobile devices support that Facility. It cant be done with the Devices which dont have the feature to block your Identity when calling.

    Check under your phone's call settings menu for the Option "Show/Hide My Number" if that option is not there then your device is not supporting the feature.

    You are asking for the device you call should show your number as "private number". Remember, your phone has nothing to do so that your identity will be displayed as private on the destination device. The device you intend to call should have your number saved like that. So it is not possible through your device.

    You can not specify your number to be saved as Private number..
    For your number to be shown as Private number.. the destination caller must have stored your number as Private in his/her device..
    Moreover if you want your number hidden for all..
    then it is also possible.. but it is Network operator who can change that..
    just with your device, you can not hide number for others..

    There are few devices in which this facility is given. If there is a option "Show /Hide my number" in the call setting menu then only you can avail this facility otherwise not.
    Also, if this facility is not in your mobile then another way is that your number should be save as a private number in the other device.

    OK dear....... Thank you....
