How to Make a Restricted Call on Google Voice

by Matt McGew

Google Voice allows you to make calls using a voice over Interent protocol network. When you make a call using this service, Google Voice will call your phone number and then connect your call to another number. By default, your Google Voice phone number will appear in the caller ID display when you make calls using Google Voice. However, by entering a special code, you can block your Google Voice number from appearing in the caller ID display.

Enter your email and password, and click the "Sign In" button.

3

Tap the "Call" button.

4

Enter "67" plus the 10-digit phone number that you want to call in the "Number to Call" field. For example, if you want to dial 310-555-1212, you would enter "673105551212."

5

Select the phone you want to call with from the "Phone to Call With" drop-down menu.

Click the "Connect" button.

Answer the phone you entered as the phone you wanted to call with. Google Voice automatically calls this number when you press the Connect button. Google Voice will connect your call to the number you entered and block the incoming caller ID information from the call recipient's caller id display.
