Another Blocking Question


Another Blocking Question

Is it possible to block on a caller ID description?  We get a lot of calls from "800 Service" with different numbers.  I think most of those calls seem to be from credit card companies saying I agreed to allow their calls because I am a customer, but when questioned what card, they have hang up on me.


Anyway that would sure be a great improvement in the Comcast service if it could be blocked on other than by number.


Re: Another Blocking Question

I would like know if this is possible too - I just blocked 12 "800 Service" calls (all with 855 area code/toll free prefixes), but there are at least 24 more on my caller ID - all are with unique numbers, after the "855" prefix. Or can you just block a prefix entirely?  ie:  855?
