Let people know it’s you who’s calling before they answer
This service allows your number to be displayed when you call someone and to be able to identify your contacts by name when they call you (if their number is in your phone’s contacts). You can also choose to withhold your personal details during calls.
CLI is free to MTN PayAsYouGo subscribers. The service is charged at a standard rate of R6 per month for all other subscribers.

How do I see who’s calling if it says withheld or unknown?
If a caller has hidden their number or identity, you won’t be able to see the number even if you have call line identity on your cellphone.
