Im registered with the TPS and a friend told me I should be getting free caller display from BT too but Im not. I tried to register online unsuccessfully and tried to activate caller display from my phone via *234# but the operator told me the service was unavailabe on this line.
Can someone from BT get back to me on this.

I'm not from BT, but I can tell you how to get it. BT confusingly call two different things 'BT Privacy at Home', there's the free caller display and the telephone preference scheme, and its possible to have one without the other. It's really easy to get activated, you just need to ring 0800 800 150 and press the button for sales. Caller display is free as long as you make two chargeable or inclusive calls per month over the bt network. For any month you don't make those calls there's a charge, I think its £2.80 but the BT person will confirm that when you order it.

is correct and the star codes only switch it on/off after it has been enabled for your line
