Sometimes you may receive an error when trying to activate our service on your mobile:
Fear not, it is simple to get our service activated on your mobile by calling your network provider and asking them to activate the system on your behalf.
Simply call your network provider’s customer service, and tell them specifically:
“I want to forward my calls when busy to…….” – and state the 0330 telephone number quoted in your activation email and text message.
Job done – the next time you receive a withheld call, just reject it….we’ll then text you the real number of the caller!
We get asked the following types of questions all the time:
- Does it actually work?
- Is it a scam?
- It’s not possible!
Well to put your mind at rest we can confirm in no uncertain times that YES – IT REALLY DOES WORK!
We can unmask No Caller ID, Withheld Number, Blocked and so on.
In simple terms when you receive a call from a withheld number, we’ll send you a text message telling you the number of the caller.
To further put your mind at rest, we’ve developed an online demo that you can try yourself!
What is No Caller ID?
We are often asked if no caller id is the same as withheld number – simple answer is yes it is!
No Caller ID is just the way Apple’s iPhone displays calls from a withheld number. Luckily Show Me The Number can reveal these no caller id calls to – yes, that’s right, we unmask no caller id !
We have been made aware that due to EE currently running 2 platforms, some customers may experience an issue setting up the conditional divert on their mobile phone.
To resolve this issue EE customer service will set the divert from their end. To request this simply call EE customer service on 150, and ask them to setup a “divert when busy” to the 0330 number given in the setup text and email.
Any issues of course please do not hesitate to contact us
One question we are asked quite a lot is “How do you actually reveal withheld calls?”
In this post we are going to briefly explain how the system works.
Firstly, you receive a call from a withheld number…
This could be a call from withheld, no caller id, blocked or any other way the various mobile phones display what is ultimately a withheld number call.
You reject the call…
Next you just reject the call. This can be a red button reject, a double click top button reject on the iphone, or a blocked reject if using one of the android call filtering apps.
The call is forwarded to us…
The rejecting of the call triggers your phone to forward the call to us. We use a conditional divert setup on your mobile that is triggered by the rejecting of the call.
We unmask the call using our technology…
Once the call has been forwarded to us, our technology unmasks the call, and sends you a text with the now-unmasked number displayed in it.
You receive the text…
…and can be happy knowing who really just called you, because Show Me The Number has successfully worked.
From rejecting the call to receiving the text the process takes approx 3-5 seconds.
