Keep track of the times you get these calls and then call your wireless carrier and ask them if they can block this number from calling you. usually you have to change your number if your being harassed in this manner.

Not accepting withheld numbers


This can be changed under the Phone app then settings if I recall correctly. There should be an option somewhere along the lines of blocking calls from unknown/private numbers.

CLIP not working in siemens gigaset al140


The display should indicate what's going on with CLIP, and why it's not showing up.
You should either see an icon of a BELL, "WITHHELD" or "UNAVAILABLE".
BELL = you haven't requested CLI from your carrier
WITHHELD = if caller has withheld CLI from carrier
UNAVAILABLE = CLI is not requested.


Do you see one of these three on the display when you receive a call?


Other than one of those reasons, I'm not sure what your issue might be.

No manual and am receiving unwanted calls at night just became threatening how do i block them


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

  1. When the phone rings, wait until the display shows the Caller ID information (usually after the second ring).
  2. If you want to block the call and add this number to the call block list, press Block.
  3. 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
  1. With the phone in standby, open the menu and select Call Blocking.
  2. 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
  1. With the phone in standby, open the call block list and find the entry you want.
  2. 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.

How do we get call list of my mobile from airtel prepaid


I would think that you should be able to get a list, break-down from your bill, from your service provider.
Just give them a call and have them send it to you.
That is what I had to do.

I hope that this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

Barring Withheld and Private numbers.


Dear ,
Go to this website and register your number. I did my several years ago and I don't get unwanted calls.

Or.... contact the place from where you bought the phone and ask them to block the number.
