Calling Features (*) FAQ

How do I block anonymous calls? (*77)

If you would like to filter out calls from people who have blocked their contact information from appearing on your call display, use *77. When an anonymous caller attempts to call you when this feature is activated, they will hear a message informing them to hang up, remove the call display block and call again. 

  • To activate Anonymous Call Reject, dial * 77.
  • To deactivate Anonymous Call Reject, dial * 87.

Anonymous call reject will only work if BOTH the name and phone number are blocked. For example a call from “Unknown Name: 555-555-5555” will go through. 

To use this service, you must be an Anonymous Call Reject subscriber.
