Using Lync at IU, how can I block my number from caller ID?

Use Microsoft Skype for Business/Lync to access Indiana University's UniCom service.

Important:
As of October 1, 2016, you will no longer be able to use Lync 2010 for Windows at IU. If you are running Windows, make sure you are using Skype for Business/Lync 2013 (part of Office 2013) or Skype for Business 2016 (available through Office 365).

At Indiana University, when dialing a phone call using the Lync UniCom client or a USB or IP phone with UniCom Enterprise Voice, you can make a call without exposing your phone number to the other party's caller ID by dialing *67 before the 10-digit number. The caller ID of the other party will then display your number as (000) 555-0100.

When using *67, you must dial the 10-digit number for all calls, including on-campus calls that you might ordinarily be able to dial with fewer digits.

If you want to block your number from caller ID for all calls you make, email Communications Convergence.

To learn how to perform common tasks in the Lync client, see Learn how to use UniCom. Also, see Microsoft's Quick Start guides and How-to videos (Windows) or Lync for Mac.

For an introduction to UniCom, including how-to PDFs and videos, see UniCom.
