I'm ex-directory (I think). What are the options for withholding my number?
- Is it correct that if I dial 141 before dialing a number, my number is withheld?
- Can I choose for my number to be withheld automatically for all telephone calls I make? If so how? I can't see an option on my account.
- If I can withhold my number automatically, is there a number I can dial to un-withhold it (?!) where I choose to.
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Yes if you dial 141 before the phone number you are calling, then your number will be withheld from caller display and 1471. There isn't an option in the Plusnet home phone panel to withhold your number by default , but if you call Plusnet or talk to them on live chat they can see about enabling it for you.
Here is a post from a couple of years ago which covered the subject.
Re: Withholding number
I've replied to the ticket you've raised on your account with basically what's been advised here. We'd be happy to withhold your phone number [with 1470 override], let us know if you want to proceed with that.
