Whoosh reply about revealing blocked CID info

Regarding your query regarding the Woosh phone caller id not with-holding. I have posted this to our network team who are currently investigating this to determine if in fact it is an issue or whether it has been fixed in previous firmware upgrades. Thanks for your enquiry initiating this check on our system. Some bugs can take awhile to surface as you probably understand in the technology industry.

What really is disturbing is that in that email, they imply that its to do with in the router? firmware. Which in turn going by that logic, someone could potentially 'mod' their fireware to show the number anyway.

iTalk still have the same issue - if you ring an iTalk number with a restricted number your CID will still be visible. I was also lead to believe (any somebody who works for Telecom may be able to confirm this or not) that blocking your CID does not guarantee the CID will remain blocked if the call interconnects with another network, remembering that the CID is still passed between networks, it's just whether the destination network chooses to ignore the flag that says "you shouldn't be displaying my number".
