Name Unavailable not blocked

I'm suppose to have Block all anonymous calls turned on. Why is it not blocking Name Unavailable...that's the definition of anonymous?

Re: Name Unavailable not blocked

Yeah, I don't think "Name Unavailable" is the same as "Anonymous".

I think Anonymous means the caller is purposely blocking their name info on caller ID., whereas Name Unavailable means the caller's phone system is unable to provide a name for some reason (other than the caller purposely hiding it).
