Caller display/call waiting

Recently subscribed to caller display. Since then if someone calls my number while it is in use  they are greeted with a message telling them to leave a message, however if they do leave a message it is not registered on my phone. Do not understand as am not subscribed to Call Waiting!

Re: Caller display/call waiting

Welcome to the forum.  Smiley
If Call Waiting is on, and someone calls you when your line is busy, they will hear an announcement that you're on a call. You will hear a 'beep' every few seconds, and have the choice to switch to the new call. If you ignore it, after a period the caller will then be invited to leave a message.
Sound more like you've got Voicemail (1571) activated, in which case callers will be asked to leave a message immediately if your line is busy. The messages are retrieved by dialling 1571. A 'stuttered' dial tone indicates you have a message waiting.
Is the caller display working?

Thanks. Yes caller display is working. Have now retrieved 1571 messages. How do I cancel 1571 as not required?

Re: Caller display/call waiting

It wont allow me to do this. I get this message
"You currently have an order in progress to add call features
Your call feature(s) will be added to your account on the next working day.
Please note: If you've requested to add any call features, you cannot add or remove any further features until this is complete. "
I don't have an order in progress!!
