Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Restricted caller Ever since I purchased my iphone all my outgoing calls are listed as a restricted caller.  Why is that?  I have the same service as I previously did and I did not request this service.  I haven't had a problem with it and now I'm trying to do business with someone who has asked me to "disable this annoying feature".  Is that possible?

Re: Restricted caller

On your iPhone press 'Setting' then press 'Phone' then press the choice 'Show My Caller ID' press that to turn that option on the word 'On' should light up in the color green That should solve the problem. Good Luck, Charlie

How can i see restricted calls made from my phone

  • Look at your phone records at the end of the month. Some cell phone and home phone providers list numbers that are restricted on the phone bill. Simply note the date and time the restricted call came into your phone and look for that date and time on the print out of phone calls made and received on the bill. The actual phone number may be there.
    Have a block put on your phone that notifies callers that you do not accept phone calls from restricted numbers. This will force the individual calling you from a restricted number to unblock his phone number and call you again, if he wants to contact you badly enough.

  • Install a toll-free number to use on your phone. When you have a toll-free number (with most providers) and only give out that number instead of your traditional phone number, you automatically receive the numbers of everyone who calls because you're paying for the calls that come to your phone.

    Outgoing calls are restricted by fdn

    This means that Fixed Dialing is enabled to certain numbers. You'll have to disable this function in order to call other numbers.

    Iphone is calling out as restricted how do i fix it

    I would call your service provider. You may have accidentally set that setting on your service. I don't see anything on the iPhone itself to fix it.

    7 day free trial for your services shouldn't cost me the aggravation of providing my VISA Card # and then fighting to undo the charge for free service offered. No - I haven't solved problem of new phone just purchased.

    Incoming calls and messages do not always display the caller's name, although it is in the contact list

    Well what does it say? does it say restricted or unknown number? if it says "restricted" then the number that they're calling from is more than likely on a list of restricted numbers that the city has... my family's house used to be like that so whenever my parents called it would way "restricted" even though I had "home" in my contact... this is usually the same list that the city uses if you don't want to be listed in the phone book

    I m getting a call from a unknown number ..he is bothering me and my family can i get the name of that user...please help!!!

    The person that left the "Solution #1" is incorrect. You can go to a website called and set your phone up so that you can find out the number of the unknown caller. Unfortunately there is a small fee associated with this feature and it also disables your voicemail. I think it is worth it to have a solution for a troublesome caller.
