All the features Xnet/Vfx has are great. It's a shame that blocking of 0900 calls is not one of them. Could this be added to allow users to control access to 0900 numbers?

There is a section in the phone portal under CALLING PLANS -> OUTGOING CALLING PLANS which looks like it allows the 0900 numbers to be blocked. It looks like WXC has to switch this on and off though. May be a solution as long as long as you never want to call an 0900 number.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

I don't see the option "CALLING PLANS -> OUTGOING CALLING PLANS" in myvfx.xport.co.nz or under vfx.xport.co.nz under the "Outgoing Calls" or "Call Control" Options perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place? Can you give me the url?

The Help Desk staff said they don't support 0900 blocking hence my comment in this forum because I think it's a very useful option to have to stop phone bill surprises with kids in the house.

You will not be able to dial 0900 at present as it's not supported, the issue with 0900's is the billing is done after the fact and we have no arrangements to get the exact billing, each 0900 could be charged at a different so there are some issues on how and when we could bill you as a customer.

Thanks maverick. I thought 0900 was supported and I wanted it turned off or blocked which your Help Desk said was not possible but it seems 0900 calls can not even be made which is great as that's just what I want.

If it ever is possible to ring 0900 numbers on Xnet/Vfx be sure to make it user configurable. Perhaps something should be included on the Xnet website regarding the non-availability of the 0900 service so new customers who might want it will know it is not available.

I have just dialed the talking clock 090045678 and it connects. So is 0900 supported or not.

That has now been stopped, there was a single occurance which allowed some 0900 calls through from certain numbers.
