Cannot call numbers that don't allow private or blocked numbers.

Every time I try to order food from my shaw home phone, the restaurant will not accept private numbers.  So unblock with *87 but then the call never works and only get a rapid busy signal which usually means error.  I have tried several ways to unblock private number, but then it still doesn't work.  Anyone having this problem

@pbohn *87 disables anonymous call blocking on your phone, so that if someone has a private number they are able to call you. 

If you're looking to show your own caller ID information when you're making a phone call, you'd want to dial *82 before the number you are calling.
