A couple of answers:Gzink what happened when you called SD?
Dr. Dave I don't think the SD number is toll free.
TVmaster can you really turn off the phone number on an iphone?
BTW I did two refreshes and our channels came back. Lots of ppl were having the same problem. So I didn't have to call SD, whew.
1- The 888 toll free number works from the US
2- *67 works on iPhone. Simply dial *67 and the number with area code all together.
3- To hide the iPhone number automatically without dialing *67, go to Settings > Phone > Show my caller ID and toggle on or off at will
