Blocking phone numbers from a specific area code

Blocking phone numbers from a specific area code

I've never blocked any numbers on my home phone - like numbers coming from an 855 area code.   How would I go about doing it?

 

Thanks.

Re: Blocking phone numbers from a specific area co

comcast only allows you to block 12 or in some areas 25 numbers.

You can also block anonymous calls. 

 

That's about it.

 

You can use another device like this one to block almost anything you don't want.

I noticed we recently went from 10 to 25 blocked numbers but really doesn't seem to work.  I can't seem to block any more than 12 numbers - many of the numbers are those 'spoof' - they simply change one digit or two.  

 

Also- Anonymous blocking doesn't seem to really work either - especially when calls come through with no ID or "Unavailable" - I think that is fairly anonymous and should be blocked ...but they aren't.

That's why I bought one of those call blockers and it works great.
