What will Office/Home Phone caller ID show me?

Caller ID will display the caller's full national phone or mobile number on your Home Phone, unless the call originates from:

  • Overseas (unless the country uses the same caller ID technology)
  • A pay phone
  • A blocked or silent number
  • Some 'unserviced' areas in Australia

If the call originates from one of the above, your handset will display either:

  • 'Unavailable' - these are generally calls coming from unserviced areas within Australia or from overseas.
  • 'Private' - these are generally calls that have been blocked by the caller or originate from an unlisted (silent) number.
