dimsim:ubergeeknz:dimsim:ubergeeknz: Get VFX to block calls from that number; problem solved!
there are multiple different numbers and WxC say they are unable to block and entire dialling code - which is what I would be happy for them to do as I don't know anyone in India :)
That's annoying :/
uh huh! its the one thing that's holding me back from dumping my telecom line altogether... couldn't go pure VFX in the house with odd calls like this at all hours of the night....
...well that and finding an inexpensive way of moving my alarm monitoring signal to VoIP. (i tried a linksys ata which would dial but the alarm company never received the codes)
Why do you see it being a provider or a VoIP issue?. If you moved to WxC (or any other provider) calls will work exactly in the same way as they do now. If somebody starts calling your number it's not going to matter what provider you're with.
As for alarms the solution is very simple, buy an IP module from AlarmNZ or get something like a POSTx if you want greater capabilities. IP based alarm monitoring is very common now, it's just that a few of the big companies are ignorant of it and the fact it's pretty much essential in a UFB world.
