I have read that they are numbers that are blocked on the receiver's end. Is this correct, and could this be a way of him hiding who he is calling? I appreciate answers.

Yes, it is possible for someone to block their phone number from appearing on the receiver's end by using the caller ID blocking feature. This can be done by adding a code before dialing the number, such as *67 or #31#, which will prevent the receiver from seeing the caller's phone number on their caller ID display.

However, it's worth noting that caller ID blocking is not always a way of hiding one's identity, as there can be legitimate reasons for someone to block their phone number, such as protecting their privacy or preventing their number from being used for telemarketing purposes.

That being said, if you suspect that someone is using caller ID blocking to hide their identity, there may be other ways to identify the caller, such as using a reverse phone lookup service or contacting your phone carrier for assistance.
