1471 Erasure (1475) is a free service that allows you to replace your last call details stored under 1471. It is available to anyone who can access 1471 on their line.
To bar all calls:
- Lift the handset.
- Choose one of the following options:
If you are not permanently withholding your number
Dial '1475' and wait for message.
If you are permanently withholding your number
Dial '1470' (release number) followed by '1475' and wait for message.
- If you are not permanently withholding your number
The service will answer and return to the caller either 'Number Unobtainable' or an announcement saying that the other caller has hung up. The message you receive depends on your exchange type. Replace the handset after the announcement.
When approximately 20 to 30 seconds have elapsed the telephone will ring once and then cut off. This is the confirmation signal to confirm the data has been replaced.
When 1471 is dialled after the above is complete, the last call details will say number withheld and the previous call details will have been replaced.
