I would like the capability to have personal blacklist entries block all calls where occurrences of user selected words appear as part of caller ID text.
Otherwise I will probably cancel my Ooma Premier because I currently have to login almost daily to add to my personal blacklist for blocking stupid calls that share caller ID characteristics.
Are these spam calls coming from outside of your immediate area codes?
If so, this may help in the meantime: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14774&start=30#p109122
For example, my immediate area codes include 206 and 425; many friends and family members have 206 & 425 numbers so I can't block the whole area code but I still block spam calls based on prefix (in some cases, prefix + 1 or 2 more digits). I set my treatment option to send to voicemail so don't have to worry about rejecting a legit call (so far hasn't happend yet; no legit person trying to reach me has left a message).

I exported (copy and paste) my blacklist to Excel to do analysis so I can come up with these blacklist entries.
The numbers seem to change wildly so a black list by area and office code as suggested would not work.
There are a number of requests for a blacklist by caller ID w/ substring capability (just like the number wildcard, "Toll*" would block anything that started with the word toll)
The frustrating part is the absence of feedback or comment from Ooma support. Are they working on it, are they reading these posts, or what? Even a "We won't do it" would be better than nothing.
Hopefully they are looking at this thread as well: Collection of Blacklist Related Requests
