Block outbound caller ID on Vodacom or MTN

People often ask me about this and I always forget (and it's seems not that easy to find). If you do not want the person you are calling to see your number (i.e. block your outgoing caller line identity - CLI) then you can:
a) ask the network to block it permanently (this isn't going to go down well with your friends and family, you want them to know it's you)
OR
b) dial #31# before the number, e.g. #31#0826008181 dial.

Works on both Vodacom and MTN and in most countries on most networks.
