    Sometimes when you switch the phone off & on this reset it to the network default which is "DISPLAY"

    assuming you have saved it correctly and not backed out try calling a mobile after saving

    The gsmcode is *31# number no spaces eg *31#07890555555 that hides the number so if its NOT working then you have to prefix those numbers *31# but I have never heard of the fault you state suddenly occurring

    Regardless of phone or SIM, on GSM mobile networks you can put #31# before the number you dial to hide your number. If you want to hide your number from a specific person you call, put their number in your phone book with #31# at the front.

    It's the phone.
