The star code *65 normally activates a caller ID, and *67 deactivates it, *77 rejects anonymous calls, *89 redials the last number called, and *89 cancels the redial. The star code *57 is used for malicious caller identification and officially initiates a trace of the caller, even when the number is anonymous.
