To clarify, you mean when you call them, they get no ring as it appears they are blocking your number?

Or your number is XXXXX showing as it is hidden?

Thank you

I want to confirm the settings on the phone first please.

Press the menu icon.

Press Call settings.
Press Additional settings.

After a moment, the current settings are displayed.

On the model of my phone I dont have an option call settings
ok, do you see Call Helen?

Or Phone?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No all that is in settings is sound and display and blocking and numerous other things but nothing to enable me to change caller I'd
ok, then it is set by your provider.

But, is it all people you call or just these two? Meaning other people see your number

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes other people see my number it's just these two people who don't Vodafone is my provider
ok, then it is their phones that are the issue Helen.

This is an on/off service. Either its on for everyone of off for everyone, it cannot be per people, this is not possible, so it will be the setup on their phone that is the problem.

I would start with having them delete your contact entry in their phone and then calling them (so it will not match against the contact).

But the issue is on their side.
