If you call someone who has a caller display and you have the call display restrict feature will your number always show up private caller/unknown?
Will this still apply if the person receiving the call has half caller id (only shows number) or full caller id (name + number).

Yes if you have your caller ID restricted no one will see your name or number.

Is that even if the person has you in their contacts?

Should be restricted no matter who you're calling.

Koodo only ever sends number information along with calls. If outbound call display restrict is enabled on the line, this information is no longer sent by the network, therefore the other party will always see unknown number whether you are in their contact list or not.

But what if this person saved my number then after that I removed the display restrict. Will he see my real ID or will he see the one he saved?

Also if display restrict activated, will the person see me with the name he saved on chat apps like Whatsapp? And what if I deactivate the restrict service after he saved my number?

If someone already has your number then preventing them from seeing it next time you call them will not make them forget what it is. They won't know who is calling when the phone rings because it will come up as an unknown number, but that's kind of a moot point if you actually intend to speak with them. If the idea is that they can't call you back you would need to change your phone number.

If you don't want the person to be able to call you back then use a call blocking feature or app

Or dial *67.

[1] You can use one-time Call Blocking by dialing the Star key (*) followed by 67, then the area code and number of the person you’re calling, then pressing either the Send or Talk key. One-time Call Blocking varies according to a person’s’ wire line or wireless network and therefore cannot be guaranteed. Double-check instructions with the land line provider if calling a wire line phone or a non-Koodo Mobile mobile phone.

That one only works on CDMA. The code for HSPA is #31#, followed by the 10-digit number you're calling.
