This is how it should work.
1. Click "View All"
2. Check boxes next to all of the numbers you want to delete off of the BL
3. Click "Delete All"
Is that so hard to implement?

BTW, Ooma just enabled wildcard blacklisting viewtopic.php?f=9&t=15436&start=0#p108297cinemachine wrote:If you aren't going to let us go beyond the 256 number limit and force us to delete some of the old numbers in order to add new ones
For me, I had 247 blacklist entries the other day.....using a more conservative approach, just combining same NPA-NXX (at least and most of the time, combining entries with same NPA-NXX or Area Code-Exchange and like 1st digit subscriber number), using wildcard entries, I got my entries down to 197. Also, I can now block most invalid phone numbers using 0* and 1* wildcard blacklist entries (blocks all incoming phone numbers starting with 0 or 1).
Thanks for the Wildcard link. That will help. So why don't they have instructions for how to do this on the Blacklist page of "my Ooma?" instead of just posting them in a forum? Seems like a no-brainer.
I'd also like to be able to sort all of my Blacklist numbers by NAME so that I can more easily compare their numbers, which would make the wildcard process much easier.
Good idea. For now though, go expand your personal blacklist (view all) and then copy and paste into Excel. Sort by number and do some clean up that way. 1 by 1 deleting and adding of Personal Blacklist right now collapses the list so not very ideal.cinemachine wrote:I'd also like to be able to sort all of my Blacklist numbers by NAME so that I can more easily compare their numbers, which would make the wildcard process much easier.
As for feature request, how does this look?
- Much like how call logs sorting works with Phone Number, Name, etc., give abitlity to sort Personal Blacklist by Number, Caller Name, and Category. *Edit 5/9/13: Add "Date Added" to the sort fields.
- Once "view all" is clicked, leave the Personal Blacklist in that mode and not collapse once entry added or deleted.

This is a public forum and you have effectively published your phone number on the internet.
He is going to go YIKES when he realizes that.
I have almost stopped updating my blacklist - there are just so many new numbers it seems pointless. I still add a number every now and then, when it is particularly annoying, but my spirit is almost broken.
You can block entire area codes. Example: 231*

Here is how I did mine: /viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14774&start=30#p109122
I saw that when it was introduced. Unless I misread it ... that's not whitelisting. I am talking about whitelisting.lbmofo wrote:You must not know about the wildcard blacklisting introduced last month?
Are you saying that Ooma considers the blacklist wildcards to also address the whitelisting request, and whitelisting is no longer being developed?
