    I think the best thing to do is to call the contact and say "Hey, it's Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number on the voicemail. You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye."

    Android 2.0.1 seemed to do a good job of it. Oh, you wanted to do it predictably?

    Why not just password protect your phone?

    There seem to be an awful lot of questions here about hiding who you are calling.

    Wouldn't locking the phone in a way that prying eyes can't open it solve the problem?

    yeah, but when you get a girlfriend that likes playing on your phone and gets suspicious over why your phone is locked... its a different story

    I know this is a stretch, but how about either have nothing to hide or get a girlfriend that isn't nosey?

    How about having a girlfriend who is nosy, and figures your business is hers, but hers isn't yours.

    I would rather have a "hide contact" type app, the less people know, the fewer questions are asked.

    Password protecting the phone, only leads to more questions... "Why does your phone have a password, and mine doesn't?" "What are you hiding?" Yeah, I can see the questions now.

    Just give the ladies in your contact lists guys names that you can remember. For example: Sandy is Andy, Toni is Tony, etc.

    Even though I think this is a relationship problem, not a Droid problem, there does seem to be a great demand for hiding what you are doing with the phone. Maybe make a post in the Droid Apps or Droid App Development section to let people know just how popular such an app would be. My guess is that it could be a paid app with a very high price tag, if the posts around here are any indication.

    And I'm going to go throw up now. :icon_eek:

    Well

    well I see everyone is playing nice this morning :). A couple of things come to mind here! The first one is :icon_ worthless:

    The second, why not be able to lock the contact with an icon that pops up like :censored: then when he/she asks. Tell them it's :censored: and it's not thier business . :rofl3::rofl3::rofl3:

    I'm really not sure but it was a good guess :rofl3: :rofl3:

    In all seriousness. I have nothing to hide and don't lock my phone. My girlfriend can look and my boss knows i'm job hunting :rofl3: :rofl3: but apparently some do

    My ninja skills: :rating01:

    I don't know, I really do find it sad that so many people are doing things that they feel the need to hide from their partners.

    :soapbox: alert!

    If you've ever been cheated on, and/or had that 'unknown other paramour' physically attack you, resulting in thousands of dollars of legal fees and at least a year in the legal system while your life was falling apart around you, these questions just aren't amusing.

    Sorry to be a complete downer and threadkiller, but these things do happen. Enabling the men who set these situations up is not ever going to be my idea of a good time. :mad:

    AND I will bow out of this thread now....

    I'm not going to argue either way, but I feel the frequently called list is useless when you can put people on the favorites list.

    We seem to have forgotten there are legitimate reasons for needing to hide contacts and have gotten totally away from the original question....and I share that original question.

    My husband is a supervisor at work and often needs to call suborinates out on calls after hours. His company requires that he keep their personal phone numbers private, so on our Centros he would simply hide those contacts. But now that we have Droids we don't have that ability and really need to find a solution ASAP. So.....back to the original question:

    Is there an app that will allow us to hide contacts?
