If you have reasonable cause or suspicion to believe that the person who called you may have committed a crime against you, has threatened you, or is threatening you, you may be able to get the phone company to release the phone number of this "private caller." I believe the caller ID gets filtered out at the telco's switch, not at the line level. Therefore, the phone company probably has on its CDR logs the name and/or number of the person whose identity you wish to know. However, I doubt they would release this unless there were serious, legitimate cause for concern -- and in that case, you'd probably have to go through the police, to whom the number would then be released.
