Blocking calls from restricted numbers

Miembro

There needs to be an option to block restricted numbers from calling you. All I can find is where you can block specific numbers, but that specific number can still call you simply by putting a block on their number. That defeats the purpose of offering that option...

The only thing I can think of is just having calls just from your contacts. Some phones have that option and others don't.Check to see if you have it....

 

  1. Configuración
  2. Phone settings
  3. Seguridad
  4. Default last 4 digits of your phone number
  5. Restricciones
  6. 4 digit code again
  7. Llamadas
  8. Llamadas entrantes
  9. Contacts Only

YouMail is a free voicemail service that gives you a workaround for dealing with restricted or blocked numbers.  It's called "DitchMail" - when it sees a blocked or restricted number, the caller gets a recorded message (yours, or DitchMail's default) saying that you do not accept calls from blocked numbers, please unblock and try again - and then it hangs up without giving the caller an opportunity to leave a message.

 

 

It doesn't prevent the call from coming in - but it does deal with it so you don't have to.  If you see a blocked number coming in, you can always hit End or Ignore, sending them straight to VM or DitchMail.

I did find where my phone has the option of only accepting calls from contacts. I did set my phone to that for now, but everytime I want to add or update a contact I have to go unlock that to allow all, add my contact, then relock it...kinda a pain...but best I can come up with for now.

You may also setup usage control for $4.99 month.  This will allow you to block restricted calls. For more info on Usage controls, click here https://wbillpay.verizonwireless.com/vzw/nos/uc/uc_home.jsp
