Just remember, this is implemented by the network, usually by call
forwarding to the voicemail number.

This is right, and should probably configurable. OTOH, just remember
that somebody really trying to reach you will start calling with the
number suppressed.

So to make this a sure thing, you would need to block all anonymous
calls. Now, out of personal experience I do know that sending the
caller number sometimes doesn't work when roaming => so surpressing
all anonymous calls would also surpress your wife, who happens to be
abroad :(
