    Default How do I block a specific number from my landline

    Not sure if this can be done, but is it possible to block certain numbers from calling landlines? My office is receiving telemarketing crap from the same number 5 or 6 times a day. My phone system cannot do this itself.

    Whoever is your phone network should be able to either block or fail in that I believe they may have a service which allows you to avoid the call.

    despite that many calls still get through, particularly number witheld, or international call, with the TrueCall (I haven't got one but considering) you can configure to ask the caller to state their name and why they are calling without picking up the phone then just allow the machine to reject automatically.

    Got one of these today and answered it, the guy on the other end was talking to a colleague and didn't realise i had picked up, just hung up.

    Who is your supplier, they should be able to give you a code, i.,e *#88# as i did this with my old suppler, as soon as the number hangs up you put the code in and it blocks them
