Wondering about a cell phone app

Jan 31, 2019 9:16PM PST

I'm new to this, and hoping this doesn't show my stupidity. But - I'm wondering if there's such a thing as a cell phone app that makes it so that a person's phone number does not show up on your cell phone bill. I've been finding that there are phone numbers missing on my bill. Inconsistencies, if you will. Is there an app for blocking a person's number so it doesn't show up on the bill?

My thought is no app required.

So many calls have spoofed the caller ID number that any report is now junk. Now if you want to remove numbers from your phone's call history I bet there is such an app.

On top of that my carrier has VoLTE, WiFi and Whatsapp calling so the sheer variety of how a call can be made means reports again can't always be correct. This may upset some that are used to the old days.

If someone is blocking their Caller ID, there will be no phone # showing on you statement. They can either block their Caller ID on a per call or a permanent basis or even "Spoof" their Caller ID to show any phone # they want to display, even your own phone #.

Nothing new.
