Blocking Calls

I'd like to find out how you block unwanted calls.  In addition is there a way to find out how long a number has been blocked?

Re: Blocking Calls

How do I block calls from numbers that display as "invalid?" The blocking system will not accept a "135" area code.

Re: Blocking Calls

I want to block all unwanted calls, especially spam.

Some have no caller id; others with seemingly local phone numbers which I do not recognize.  I have applications on my mobile phone to stop these but not for my compast supported phone.  What do I do?

Re: Blocking Calls

I have the same problem and I'm 77.

I can stop unwanted calls on my cellular phone but not my home phone.

Re: Blocking Calls

Go to caller ID, scroll down to the number. Select the edit button, then save the CID number, select call block, then yes under call block, then select save. 

I don’t know if it is feature on my Panasonic cordless phone or if it is from Xfinity.

Have you tied Nomorobo? It's free.

I use it and works pretty well for me.

Re: Blocking Calls

nomorob helps some - but i still get lots of calls.  Comcast needs to add easy feature on mobile app (connect) to block a number directly from the app.  ALSO, comcast currenlty limits number of *60 blocks to 25 numbers - ridiculusly low , and hard to modifiy.  A cell phone has many more ways to easily block AND REPORT robocalls.   I get hunderds of "lower my interest rate" calls a month.
