    Can anybody recommend an app that will block my caller id when i make outbound calls? I need this for when i call clients from my cell. On the K1 i used an app from megapps, which doesnt appear to be an option for oreo.

    Why would you need an app? It's built-in and a carrier function. Open your phone app, go to settings, calling accounts, additional settings and disable your caller ID.

    Possible Verizon blocked access to the settings, I suppose. Wouldn't be the first time. Don't have VZW to confirm though.

    I think I finally found a good solution to this issue and thought I'd post. I installed SmartLine from GoDaddy. It adds a second phone line to my phone. Cost is $10 / month. Separate app used to dial. It works from the same contact list already on the phone. I can call or text from this number. When a call comes into my phone - it's easy to see if it's the second line.

    When setting up - I was able to select my area code, then select from several available numbers. Setup was a breeze.

    There are settings to manage the SmartLine so that calls can only come during certain hours, or can be toggled on/off altogether.

    This is a great answer for anybody looking to add a line for business calls and wants to keep their private cell phone number private.
