Instructions

To use Call Display:

The phone number and name appears on the display screen after the first full ring if:

  • The call is from a local number or long distance number* in Canada.
  • The call is placed from an area where the Call Display service is available.
  • The person receiving the call has an appropriate Call Display terminal (such as the Aastra 480e set or a Call Display unit) and subscribes to Call Display.
  • The call is from a customer of another phone service provider (including wireless providers) that delivers call display information.

* Long distance information is delivered across Canada where technology permits.

"Unknown Number" and "Unknown Name" will be displayed after the first full ring if:

  • The call is operator assisted.
  • The call is from some types of wireless phones.
  • The call is from an area where Call Display features are not available (local or long distance in Canada).

"Private Number" and "Unknown Name" will be displayed after the first full ring if:

  • The caller chose to activate a blocking option.

"Long Distance" will not be displayed if :

  • The call originates from a long distance area not equipped to provide Call Display.

Crisis lines, women's shelters and resource centres do not subscribe to Call Display.

To use Call Display Blocking:

Display Blocking prevents your name and phone number from appearing on a display screen. The following options are available:

Free Selective Display Blocking is automatically available, free of charge, to all single line residence and most business customers where Call Display is available.

  1. Simply enter *67 on your phone or 1167 on your rotary dial phone or *967 on Centrex before making your call.
  2. "Private Number" and "Private Name" will be displayed instead of your phone number and name.
  3. When making long distance calls, activate Selective Call Display blocking before dialing.

FREE Automatic Display Blocking is provided to shelters for victims of abuse. Automatic Display Blocking is available on request to victims of spousal abuse living outside shelters. This option prevents the number and name from displaying on all calls.

Operator-Assisted Blocking prevents your name and number from being displayed by placing your call through the operator. You must ask the operator for Display Blocking assistance. A fee of $0.80 per call will apply for operator-assisted dialing. "Unknown Number" and "Unknown Name" will appear on the display screen receiving the call.

All non-published names and telephone numbers are displayed to subscribers of Call Display and to customers of other phone service providers (including wireless providers), unless the caller activates one of the Call Blocking options.

The name associated with a telephone (name display) may not be available in all areas.

Hints & Tips
