Just wondering, my number is off the white pages, which is good.  But how come Orcon wont make my landline number private for when I make outbound calls?




Has this feature really been removed?

Try dialing 0197 before the number

It's entirely speculation on my behalf but it's entirely possible their voice platform doesn't support a default block on all calls. Dialling the standard 0197 before a call will block it for that call.

Why do you want to block outgoing CLID for? If anyone calls me with CLID blocked it doesn't get answered.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
