Hi there, not possible to suppress the name display with Fido.

However, you can change the first name part to your first initial, or another family members name or a name of a company/business if you have one.

Why not give Fido Customer Care a call and see if they are willing to help you?

Hi there ChristinaM, 

 

I came across this post and thought of adding another alternative option to hide your number/name when calling out. 

 

Simply type #31#, free of charge, before each phone call. 

 

Certain phones allow you to block your information for outgoing calls directly from the menu - settings. 

You can take a look at your Fido phone's User Guide here to find out if your phone permits this. 

If the display the of your name and number is permanently blocked through the phone's menus, it may be temporarily unblocked by dialling *31# before placing a call. 

 

I hope this information was useful for someone, somewhere out there Happy
