Hi there. Every time I receive a call my caller ID doesn't recognise the number so it is displayed as Unknown caller. It has only just started doing it over the last couple of weeks. Can anyone help

Recurring theme on O2 these days @GeoffreyDowning - a quick search reveals:  https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Tech-Support/All-incoming-calls-show-as-unknown-caller/m-p/1697266/hig...

Worth a punt - ways to reach O2 via Social Media are in the link just below, or call CS via 202 (Contract) or 4445 (PAYG) - they don't need to see your phone number on their system to be able to fix the problem for you. Good luck, @GeoffreyDowning .

I have been on the phone to 02 customer service and he says on his system he cannot see a CLI presentation bolt on and he said there isn't anything he can do.... Seriously thinking of going somewhere else and taking my phone number with me

The guy in customer care practically denied that there is a bolt on named CLI presentation. If I don't get this sorted I may be taking my business elsewhere

Had exactly the same, they also denied CLI was a thing. Suggested trying a replacement simm which we did and now we have no service at all! Waiting the usual 24 hours but no hope this will work. Put the O2 sim in my phone in February. Took til March (and a replacement sim) for it to work but left with no caller id. Having spent so many hours on the phone (mostly waiting or on hold) only went into store yesterday to try to get it fixed and long story short here we are back to no service at all. Even the staff in the store cant get through to the tech support department as all calls routed to customer service.....problem sent to the people in the back room but Im to wait 10 working days before bothering them.......

I am sorry to hear that @BP1-, but you will appreciate that this is a customer to customer forum and we cannot access accounts or do anything direct to help. 

 

You will need to persevere with O2 on this. When you come to remind them next, I suggest that you message O2 on social media :-

 

Facebook : https://o2uk.co/O2CFB

 

X (previously known as Twitter) : https://o2uk.co/O2CTW

 

Instagram : https://o2uk.co/O2CIG

 

The social media team are UK-based and do have a reputation for solving problems. Their typical response time is 48 hours, so please periodically chase them.  

 

A complete schedule of how to contact O2 is in :-

Hi everyone,

I have gone through the similar misery since 16th of April when despite having heard from numerous people on social.media (all using esims) facing the issue of coverage full blackout, the O2 has yet to acknowledge that something broke at their end.

I had two esims on my account one being used on an android device and another on apple iPhone. You must appreciate the anguish when O2 support told me that my problems were handset related and I should call the manufacturer instead. 

I spent in excess of 30 hour over the phone with o2 and three visits to O2 shop and each phone call and store visit I was greeted with implied assertion that I making things up and all is well with my services. Reminded me of a lot of conversations with my GP over the years. But O2 has really one upped NHS on service standards eventhough it is profit driven and don't enjoy monopoly (unfettered public support) like NHS. 

 

I managed to fix all issues from no coverage, then coverage but no incoming calls, then incoming calls without caller id myself week at a time. O2 has generously gave me a £10 credit for my troubles somewhere along the line, whereas I have missed much valuable business (work and personal) due to these issues while also spending significant time.
