Show my number in outgoing calls

I succeeded in blocking my phone number in outgoing calls (for work), but now I am unable to unblock it. I use an Android phone. On the call settings, it indicates "show my number in outgoing calls according to the default operator settings". I tried selecting other options such as "Show number", but when I call my friends still say my number is hidden. Is there a way to fix it? (My number was displayed before, but not anymore)
Thank you

    So the number is now shown after I restarted the phone (just did a test call), but after using #31# to hide my number once the subsequent numbers are all hidden even when I don't input the #31# to hide my number. I don't want restart my phone after each call if I need to alternate between hiding my phone number and not. Is there other solutions I can try?

    Hi David

    It looks like you will need to change the setting on your phone calling app.

    For most Android phones, it's on the dialer app or phone settings: Show my caller ID

    Which phone model do you have? You can search online: "how to show my caller id on (your phone model)" to get more details for your phone.

    Hello David!
    Please check the phone settings to see the option "Show number" is on and call your friend with prefix *31#
