Block a call

Block a call

Hello.  I have been getting unwanted soliciation calls.  Is there a code I can put in to block these calls?  I am already on the National no call registry.

Thank you.

Re: Block a call

There is no way to block calls. They keep changing and spoofing numbers so it is impossible to block. There are some third party blockers, but they cost money and do not work well because of the spoofs.

ADDING:  You may want to look at using a 3rd party "FREE" blocking service for KNOWN SPAMMERS...   www.nomorobo.com

Re: Block a call

You're right. But it still cannot block spoofed numbers.

If the "spoofed" numbers are reported by end-users and verified by Nomorobo it will begin to block them... The reason scammers continually change them.

Official Employee

Re: Block a call

 

Hi afri, the information that (barbie123 and geek46) provided is correct. You would want to use a third party company to block unwanted calls.
