Does anyone out there no what types, models, or brands of phones have the option of a hidden address book/phone number list??? I cannot find anything on phonescoop, nor anywhere else? I want a phone that I can hide numbers in, and the only way to get them out is with the password... Help??

The audiovox phones offer password protected address books. If I'm correct, I think all phones have that option. Go to settings, then security on your phone, then go to restrict and restrict any function you want to.

Hope this helps
