How To Hide Number on MTN Using USSD Code

MTN provides a specific ussd code for hiding numbers on MTN. So, anytime you are about to call any number, you put this USSD code in front of the number! While the first method may be somewhat ambiguous for those that don’t know how to operate a phone very well, this method is the better and straight forward! 

Also, one of the benefits of this method is that you can your number for a specific person and you can hide your MTN number for everyone you call!

If you want to hide your MTN number for every contact you call, all you need to do is dial #31# and a message will be displayed on your screen telling you “outgoing caller ID service has been disabled”.

If you want to hide your MTN number for a specific person, all you need to do is to dial “#31#recipient phone number”.

Example; to hide your number from 080123456789, all you need to do is dial #31#080123456789

Hope you understand?
