Most of the telecom service providers offer call blocking features. In addition to this, most of the vtech cordless phone sets have built-in features through which you can block incoming calls from a specific number.
Create a "Call Block List" on the vtech phone and store the Caller ID information of unwanted callers in the list. The numbers you feed in the block list will get a busy signal every time they try to call you.
Ring up the customer service of the telecom company that is providing you the phone service. Tell the representative that you want to get your incoming calls blocked from a specific number. The company will then add that number to a list of blocked numbers for your particular phone number. In the future, every time an unwanted caller tries to ring you up, he will hear a recording saying the number has been blocked.
Visit the website donotcall.gov. Add your phone number to the website's list of phone numbers that cannot be reached by telemarketers and businesses.
Using Call Block If you subscribe to Caller ID, you can save phone numbers to the call block list. When a call comes in, the phone compares the received phone number to the numbers on the call block list. If the phone number is on the list, the phone replaces the caller's name with Call Blocked and disconnects the call. (The caller hears a reject tone.)
The call block list holds 20 entries, and all stations share the same list. You can add entries through the Call Blocking menu, by selecting Add Call Block in the CID menu, or by blocking incoming calls. (Only one station can edit the call block list at a time.) Blocking incoming calls
When the phone rings, wait until the display shows the Caller ID information (usually after the second ring).
If you want to block the call and add this number to the call block list, press Block.
When the phone asks you to confirm, press Menu/select or Block. Blocking an incoming call from an "Unknown" or "Private" number is the same as selecting Unknown Number or Private Number from the Call Blocking menu.
Call Blocking menu options
With the phone in standby, open the menu and select Call Blocking.
Choose one of these options:
Create New(Handset only) - Add an entry to your call block list. The phone will prompt you to enter a name & phone number.
Private Number(Handset only) - Block all calls from numbers reported by CID as "Private." (This does not count as one of the 20 entries.)
Unknown Number(Handset only) - Block all calls from numbers reported by CID as "Unknown". (This does not count as one of the 20 entries.)
Call block entry options
With the phone in standby, open the call block list and find the entry you want.
Press Menu/select to open the individual entry menu. Choose one of these options:
Edit(Handset only) - Edit this entry. The phone will prompt you to edit the name & phone number.
Delete - Erase this entry from the list & allow calls from this number.
If you have Call Blacklist facility in your handset then you can use it to block specific numbers.
If you don't have the Call Blacklist feature in your handset then ask your Operator if they provide the Call Filter services. In some regions Opertors too provide the Call Filter services.
Through Call Filter service you can manage your own Blacklist or Whitelist number. Your Blacklisted numbers will be blocked at the operator end and you will get the sms that you had a call from your such and such blacklisted number and the call is successfully blocked.
Handy Blacklist protects your time and peace of mind by keeping undesired calls off your phone. If there is someone you just don’t want to hear from, let Handy Blacklist keep that person off your phone! 2 types of lists with different functions will keep unwanted calls hidden from your eyes. You have one blacklist and one or several Allow lists. Only one list can be activated at the moment. Blacklist contains numbers you want to be blocked. You can add numbers from recent calls, contact list or just by typing them. If you reject a call manually, the software will propose you to add that number to blacklist automatically! Blocking of Private and Unknown calls is also available. Allow list contains numbers which will be allowed to receive while others will be rejected. In addition, you can choose a "reject" action to return a prewritten text message back to the caller. A notification of the missed calls appearing in a popup note can be set by user as well.
