@Dicksdiner 

That is quite a common problem where the exchange configuration is lost, and is out of sync with the account.

To fix it, they need to remove the caller display option from MyBT, and progress that order.

Then wait 24 hours and add it again. That will reload the customer profile within 24 hours.

Please post back with an update to say whether that fixes the problem.

Note that caller display is not enabled by default, on a new account.

If you called 152, then that is BT Business, and would not be able to help with BT Residential lines, which is why they did not call back.

I assume it is a BT residential line that you are trying to sort out?

Thanks Keith,  I’ll do what you recommend, BT said they would raise it with Openreach ,that was a week ago so no help there. They said it should be active on account . Rich.

If  *#234# says not available, then its not programmed into the exchange equipment. That is a separate function to what is on the account. Its the change in account status that triggers the upload to the exchange via the OMC. This normally happens overnight.

By removing the caller display feature, then adding it again, triggers a change in state.

Openreach will not be able to fix it, as its an exchange configuration issue. The exchanges are very old, which is why they are being closed down.

The only exception to this process is for customers who have BT Digital Voice, and the customer  controls the status directly via MyBT.
