yes. you can either hack together a lot of good hardware or software or you can have a good reason and call your phone company.

Private calls bug the hell out of me. I'm sitting there wondering, who the hell called me!? Even if I have the person's number in my address book, it still comes up as a private number when they call.

I never gave my mobile number to people I didn't know (for a reason) and now I've found out it appears to be in the phone book. How the hell is that possible? Are mobile phone companies allowed to put it in there?

I think phone numbers are always public, unless you want it to be private and contact your phone company about it.

yeah, i'm getting calls between 6am and 7am every morning...for a week. from a private number. they never leave a message, and i'm never awake to answer it. so fucking annoying.
