Is there a code you cna place to dial the number of a missed call?
Its not a prank call.  Just would be helpful to know when people dial you then u just put in *61 and it would tell you the number who called you.

Is there a number like that ?

No, telecom don't offer any cool services like call return, which usually works on withheld numbers which is a bonus.

Recently I haven't being getting as many withheld calls at all here at home, in fact in the last week I don't think I have had any. So perhaps people are getting the message that its antisocial to do that.

Are you a Telecom or TCL customer? If you're TCL on-network *52 will play back the last called number and you can then press 1 to connect the call.

All my cordless phones have a 'log' I just press that button, and gives me a list of the calls. I select the one i want using up/down, and press talk/dial on the number i want.

Its netwrok agnostic, works great.

It doesn't work if the caller has caller ID Block, does it? On Telecom line you can call back your caller only if they leave a message in your voicemail. It works on mobile phone cost about $0.80 to use that function. I haven't tried it on a landline though.
