How do you block caller id per call on telstra?

Have tried 0197 and 197 and all I get is overloaded continous beep noises, it use to work where it would go beep, beep and then the normal dial out tone.

Only thing I could find on their web site said that 0197 should work, or 197 if toll bar.

I assume you are on a TCL On Network connection?

*32 blocks it and there is also a link to a full guide on the same page which you can view here

I am positive 0197 used to work but I've been VoIP only for ~3 years now so don't have a line to test it on.

Thanks, it's on a friends phone, got messy one time when called person and they used caller id for who they were talking to instead of information told!

*32 did two beeps and then went to normal dial tone so looks promising, though I can't find any reference to it on telstra or even document you referenced, word search for *32 didn't find anything.

Thankyou, again.

You were in the HomePlan area of the TCL site.

The InHome area has the details if you are an On Network customer.

Thankyou, found it.

So it looks like one code if resold through telecom wholesale or other, and the *32 code if directly connected to telstra.
