Call Return


CALL RETURN allows you to key *27# or 1471 and be told the number of the last person who called you. This works whether you answered the call or not. To automatically dial the number of the last person to call you, you key *28# immediately after picking up the phone, or 3 after dialling 1471.

Certain numbers will not be available to you. The numbers which cannot currently be made available to the receiving telephone include some on networks other than BT's, including many countries abroad.

In order to protect the identity of callers who don't want their number known to the person they're calling, it is possible for ANY customer to key 141 before the number they are calling, in order to stop the passing of their number on an individual call basis.

Ex-directory numbers ARE normally passed to the receiving telephone. Unless an ex-directory customer takes special action, their number WILL be sent to the party they are calling. As well as the 141 facility, it is possible for customers to stop the passing of their number on ALL calls, except those when they use *231*<number># or key 1470 before the number they are calling. Contact BT for this facility.
