Speed Dial reinstating witheld number

My home number has 'witheld' number setup.  I normally put '1470'  before the dialled number if I want the caller to recognise me.  However on 'Speed-Dial'  1470 doesn't work.  is there a workaround for this?

Hi @gsmith99

 

The display of a caller's number at the choice of the caller is intended to be used on a per call basis. Exactly as you do now, key 1470 immediately before the number.

 

With Speed-Dial the number is replaced by a * * quick code but in its present form Speed-Dial doesn't allow the storing of the 1470 prefix before the stored number.

 

What will work when you call the number is to key 1470 * * 3, for example, where the Speed-Dial number you want is * * 3.

 

What we'll do here is ask the TalkTalk team to ask the MyAccount Team and or relevant stakeholder to see if it's possible to allow the storing of a 1470 prefix (or 141 prefix) as part of the Speed-Dial number.

I am genuinely curious as to the thinking behind this. I imagine the purpose of a Speed-Dial number is for those frequently used. In which case presumably known to the caller. In which case why would you wish to withhold your number from them?

When you setup withholding number it applies to everyone
