    Generally, there are two ways to block your Caller ID on outbound calls - either have the telco enable "all call blocking" on the lines, or use the *67 code before each call (*67, area code, phone number). If you want to do it for most calls, then use option 1 (and use *82 to unblock on a per call basis). Be aware that regardless of this, businesses can pay to have your # show anyway...

    You will need to call your telephone service provider to setup all call blocking.

    As I said, if you want it done on all calls, you need to call the telephone company and have "all call blocking" added to each line. It MAY be possible to use the BCM to add a prefix to all calls using optimized or lease cost routing tables, but even so, that is very inefficient. Get your phone bill, call customer service, and tell them you want "all call blocking" added to all your lines.
