Topic # 100319 9-Apr-2012 08:32 Send private message

Hi there I was wondering is it possible to blacklist numbers with my Italk voip line?

We have been getting quite a few cold calls, and I have idea where they get our voip line from since it's private, and unlisted number and we haven't had it for very long.

I heard it's possible to do that on some SIP providers, and I was wondering if you could do it on italk?

Thanks

Its possible your number has been reassigned rather quickly to you- I had this with iTalk- lots of creditors calling me demanding money and I'd never used their services before. Was your voicemail accessible when you got the number? Processes may have changed since I had iTalk but when I got it for the first time I had it it was still the other person's voicemail

Yes you can and it works like a champ (I've set it up for a mate in the past, long story...)

The settings you want are in 2Talk Live under Caller ID & Rejection options.

Tick "Reject all anonymous calls" and add the numbers you don't want calling to "Blacklisted callers"

If someone calls from either originating source, they get a message to record their name.  Once they've done so, 2Talk rings you and you can either send the call to voicemail or answer it.  It really is a great service for catching the odd false positive.

You can do the same with italk,

Log into the SS website with your username and password,
then go to My Phone > Easy Phone and there should be an option for selective call rejection.

You can set it to reject all private numbers or just the numbers you don't want to receive calls from.

Once done the person calling will get an engaged tone whenever calling you.

Note that if you select all private numbers this will block all numbers.

The other option is to set up call screening for unknown numbers so they have to state who they are before the call connects.

Cheers,
Warren
