How do we hide our number to someone we call on a Koodo cell phone (The equivalent of *72 on a landline) ? Thank you!

I have a SIM card Galaxy Ace II phone.

I do believe if you open phone settings there is an option to not report your number.

Check to see - this would turn it off until you turned it back on

Settings -> Phone -> Call Settings -> Additional Settings -> Caller ID.

Open your phone app. Then hit the menu key.

@Tyler Do I include the "1" for long distance in there as well (if I were to call to the USA)?

@Chad - I have Android 4.4. No "Phone" section in Settings. But you give a trail to look up... thank you!

I would. If it turns out you don't have to, one less thing to worry about :P

@Chad - In the Phone mode, using the menu button, enter Call Settings -> Additional Settings -> Caller ID and choose between Network default, Hide Number, Show number.

Thanks for you help!
