How do I get hold of BT to change my unlisted number to listed

Go to solution

I have been unlisted since 1990 due to some past incidents that are no longer relevant. It means my number my number comes up as a private number and is not accepted by some telephone systems. I contacted Offcom and was told that I had to contact BT - how? I dial the 0800 number but none of the options are of any use to me - I need to speak to a person not a machine!

@jimbrat91 

Prefixing the number dialled with 1470, will release your number for that call only, if that is any help.

I want to remove it permanently. I make a lot of calls for various reasons and quite often the calls get blocked.

I just want to talk to a real person!!!!!

Then just call 150, you will eventually reach a customer services person.

Yep called them but the options are not suitable - it is not a question about billing - so option 1 is out. It is not a fault - so option 2 doesn't help, I'm not moving house or leaving them and its not about mobile either - and none of the options has one for ' if its not one of these options hang on for an operator' either.
