Unblocking caller on ID on my landline

Answered

When using my land line to call out, the receiving persons phone shows ' no caller ID'

I want my id shown since some of the people I call will not pick up unless they can see who the caller is.

It was showing but now for some reason it is no longer is? Cant see anything in the user manual for Telstra VS80a

Re: Unblocking caller on ID on my landline

Call 132200 and ask them to Permanently Unblock Caller ID on your home phone.

 

The other thing to note is that Caller ID does not always work between networks, so for example, if someone is on Optus they may not see your number come up (and vice versa). My parents number comes up as "Private" on my Telstra phones (mobile and fixed) as they are on Optus (and don't have caller ID blocked).

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help
