Home Phone Number, Private or Displayed

Post by machine » Wed Aug 26, 2015 4:44 pm

Hi,

How do I know if my home phone number is displayed or blocked from being displayed to businesses when I call them.

Thanks

If caller number display is blocked, then your number will appear as a private number when you call anyone.

As far as I can see, your number has this blocked already. I might be looking at the wrong number so could you please PM the service number and I will have this checked.

PM received. Yes I was looking at the right number and yes, the caller number display option is blocked so your number will display as "Private Number" when you call someone or a business.
