Activating Caller ID will allow your phone number to be displayed when you make a call, it will also show the number of who's calling you. Keep in mind that blocked or silent numbers still won't display with Caller ID active.
You can turn Caller ID on or off for your mobile service online in My Account.
Just follow the steps below:
1 - Login to My Account
2 - Click on the 'Dashboard' tab
3 - Choose your mobile service then click the 'Settings' tab
4 - Once you're in the 'Settings' tab click 'Setup' next to 'Call diversion and settings'
5 - Follow the prompts to switch Caller ID on or off
Once you've successfully submitted the request this is what you'll see in My Account, the change can take up to 4 hours to process:
If you're not wanting to permanently have your Caller ID on show or hidden, you can also manually do this per call.
To show your number when calling just dial 1832 before the number you're calling
To hide your number when calling just dial 1831 before the number you're calling
Both of these show/hide options work for Mobiles and Home Phones.
So I have turned caller ID on in the settings on the website and on my phone itself and still all incoming numbers show as unknown even if the number is in my contacts
any help would be appreciated as I've already missed out on several job opportunities

Yeah, that may have been the reason Chrio22. After following the above steps, does it now show all numbers calling you?
