that can't be done, you might want to look for other apps that have some sort of stealth mode

hide number? as to hide your phone number whenever you make a call? 

 

as for notifications, open the app > settings > notification settings

Someone from your phonebook, so that nibody would know whom you are calling or texting, without intention of blocking it

no, you probably will need a third party app

Re: How to hide number and incoming message

Hi @Jumar, welcome to our forum!

If you want to hide your number for outgoing calls, you can have a look with your operator and see if there is a code that you can type before the number to make it hidden, or you can enable the setting for this in the device by opening up the Phone application > tap the three dots in the top right corner > Settings > Calls > Additional settings > Caller ID.

If you want your number to be hidden when sending a text message, you will need a third party application for this as @uliwooly mentioned, or you can check with your operator if they can assist you with this.

I hope that helps!
