EXCEPT, it doesn't exist anywhere in the "Change Features". You actually have to CALL Verizon, wade through all the crap, get someone on the phone, and have THEM turn it on... And then, there's no "display" "hide" or such. Just a line in the "Change Features" that says "Caller ID Block".......
SO, in THEORY, it's resolved. We'll find out Tuesday. What a massive pain in the ass it is to get something that SHOULD be this trivial done.
My carrier is Ting and it is also in a seperate app (the Ting app via Play Store)
Ting also uses all Sprint devices and towers, so my phone is the SM-G900P (Sprint model) and uses all Sprint firmware.
Once I tried to block it, I believe it auto-updated the Profile to send it to their network.
Yes, huge PITA for a feature - but I believe they do this so people dont accidently enable blocking their Caller ID and waste their carriers time having to call Customer Service and ask why. There's prolly less people who want this feature than who do, so thats why they remove certain features...
Same as the Xposed mod to record calls - Samsung programmed it in, but due to legality issues - they cant make it easily enabled.
