Caller ID and private number showing

When making a call my number shows as a "private number" on the recipients phone, how can i change this to show my actual telephone number?

Was this helpful?

Is this on a home phone or a mobile?

Go to https://www.my.telstra.com.au/myaccount/home and sign in..

 

In the list of services, you will see you phone number, click on Manage plan and allowances..

Scroll down to Caller Identification and click Manage..

Click the Caller ID On button.. Click Submit..

 

Logout and wait for it to be activated - it might take a few days (they warn you of that)..  you should get advice of the change and that it is active  

Test it to make sure it works
