Re: No caller ID

Caller Display is an optional extra that costs 99p per month and can be turned on/off from here (login is required).

 

Unless this is activated the Caller ID will not be displayed on any phone.

Re: No caller ID

At only 99p a month one wonders why they bother to charge at all. Smacks of being a might miserly if you ask me but I guess the pennies make lot's of pounds in the end. Any idea how many subscribers they have?

We get charged for it at a wholesale level.

Re: No caller ID

It's a shame but I may as well use a mobile phone now. Pointless paying for a call package nowadays.
