      I signed up, how do they know my number?

      I signed up by phone, they took all my details, except my phone number! They checked the line for availability there and then...

      So I'm assuming that the Caller ID gives them the number. Though I thought we were Caller Witheld!

      Just as well I didn't call them using the NTL line then.

      They might have your phone number via your contract with them for your TV packages although it is odd that they didn't ask it this time around.

      Caller witheld, should actually read as

      "Caller not displayed"

      The CLI number is ALWAYS sent but the other end may not have the cabability to display it.

      Some agencies, operator, police some government, can read display your CLI,

      So maybe they are allowed to !

      Well I'm not phoning them up again they've heard enough from me for one day

      The must have got the number because they checked the maximum line speed as well. (8.1Mb/s)
