How to prevent ubuntu Touch from showing own phone number (when making a call)?

Hi there, i'm using latest Ubuntu Touch for a while on a Nexus 5 specifically purchased for this, and have one real big problem (with this otherwise lovely OS )...
It seems like there is absolutely no possibility to hide my phone number when calling someone - I can't prevent the phone showing my number to the device/person on the other end.
Is this really true or do I miss something here?
Could I edit a specific config file for this perhaps...?
(Hiding my own phone number was a simple standard option I always used on my FirefoxOS smartphones and several older feature phones for many many years in the past.)
Thanks for any reply!

Depending on your provider you have to dial something like #31# or *67.
But it depends on your country and provider, so the best answer would be search the web for this information.

If this works for you , you could make a custom group and set this to dial ,this code, with pauses etc ,to give it time to work.
Travelling the usa, I had a prepaid card , and set my phone up to dial the card numbers and code, then the number I needed, it was a few years ago , there must be info ,on how to set it up.
I remember it sure saved a lot of button pressing.
