Caller ID conveys your phone number across the network for display on the called party's phone, subject to the called phone having a suitable display capability.
Caller ID Settings
Caller ID operates at three levels - the network; the handset and at the individual call level.
At the network level when Caller ID is enabled it applies to all calls - except when code 1831 is used, or if over-ridden by handset settings. When disabled at the network level it applies to all calls - except when code 1832 is used, or if over-ridden by handset settings.
The Caller ID capability is enabled by default, but you have the options of:
- having Caller ID disabled, in which case the phone number of your mobile is never displayed on the called parties phone, except to Emergency Services. You can disable Caller ID for all calls by contacting us.
- if Caller ID has been disabled, you can temporarily enable Caller ID (on a call by call basis) by prefacing any called number with 1832.
- if Caller ID is enabled, you can temporarily disable Caller ID (on a call by call basis) by prefacing the called number with 1831.
Some mobile phone handsets have the capability to change Caller ID settings at the handset level or to temporarily override network settings - consult your phone user manual for further information.
If the called party has diversions in place, the identity of the originating phone (not the service number with diversions in place) may be passed through.
Note the codes 1831/1832 are National codes and will only work within Australia.
When roaming, use the GSM codes #31# (for 1831) or *31# (for 1832). These codes will also on your NodeMobile service within Australia.
