Call Blocking
This feature will allow you to block certain numbers from calling your phoneline. Blocked callers will hear a recording telling them you are not accepting calls from them.

To activate dial:

*60 (or 1160 on a rotary phone)

To de-activate dial:

*80 (or 1180 on a rotary phone)

Helpful Hints:

1. To add/remove numbers from your list, follow the voice prompts.
2. Most telephone companies only allow up to six (6) entries.
3. In some areas, when using a rotary phone, dialing "11" can be used in substitution for "*" and "12" can be used in substitution for "#" see here for more detailed information about this.
4. In most areas, toll-free, long distance, and cellular numbers may not be added directly. However, if your telephone company's call block feature offers the option to "add the last calling party" this can sometimes override this restriction so long as the number you want to add was the last number to call your line.
