Whether you want to display your number for personal or professional reasons, you’ll be pleased to know that removing your Airtel number from private is a simple process.

In this article, we’ll guide you through two easy methods to disable private number on your Airtel line. Say goodbye to the mystery of private calls and let your number shine!

Method 1: Using the USSD Code

One of the easiest ways to remove your Airtel number from private is by using a USSD code. Follow the steps below:

  1. Dial #131# on your phone.
  2. Select option 1 for “Caller ID Options.”
  3. Choose option 2 to Disable Private Number.
  4. Enter your Airtel PIN and press #.

By following these steps, you will successfully disable the private number feature on your Airtel line. This means that your phone number will now be displayed to the recipient when you make a call.

Method 2: Using the Airtel App

If you prefer a more convenient option, you can use the Airtel app to remove your number from private. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Airtel app on your phone.
  2. Tap on the Profile icon.
  3. Navigate to Settings.
  4. Scroll down and tap on Caller ID.
  5. Toggle the Hide Caller ID option to Off.

With just a few taps, you can disable the private number feature and ensure that your Airtel number is visible to the person you are calling.

Additional Considerations

While the methods mentioned above will remove the private number restriction on your Airtel line, there are a few additional things to keep in mind:

  1. Specific Contact Settings: If you had previously hidden your number for a specific contact, you will need to remove the restriction for that contact manually. Check your contact settings and ensure that your number is set to be displayed.
  2. Third-Party Caller ID Apps: If you are using a third-party caller ID app on your phone, disabling private number through the Airtel app or USSD code may not be sufficient. Some caller ID apps have their own settings to control the display of your number. Make sure to check the app’s settings and disable private number if necessary.
  3. Customer Service Assistance: If you encounter any difficulties or have further questions regarding removing your Airtel number from private, don’t hesitate to reach out to Airtel customer service. Their dedicated support team will be more than happy to assist you.

Now that you know how to remove your Airtel number from private, you can enjoy the convenience of having your number displayed whenever you make calls. Whether it’s for personal or professional reasons, showing your number adds an extra layer of transparency to your communications.

Remember, clear and open communication is the key to meaningful connections. So go ahead, disable private number on your Airtel line, and let your contacts see who’s calling with a simple glance at their screen.

I hope this guide has been helpful to you! If you have any other questions or need further assistance, feel free to ask.
