So Blacklist have been around for 5 months now. And I must say the phone is only ringing from people I want to hear from. Thanks Ooma.

I checked this morning and I have 17 numbers blocked (excluding relatives) and will add one every month now.

How many numbers are on you blacklist?

I have only five, but in this area they are the most important five. I showed someone at work my short blacklist and he saw all of the familiar local offenders and said "That's why I'm buying Ooma today". Just to block those five numbers. He didn't even ask to find out you get free phone service with it. :)

Just as well you didn't say, as I think that blacklists are a Premier feature.

I only got my Ooma this year, but I've used VOIP at home exclusively for the past 6 years and have been routing telemarketers to a number out of service message or blueface.ie's monkey sounds for much of that time. I've not taken the time to move many over to my Ooma blacklist--I find the data entry method for Ooma's blacklist tedious and hope some modifications are made so that it's more of a straight table entry that can be tabbed through rather than the current pop-up box that has to be launched for each entry. My total list of telemarketers to move over is well over 100--I would say almost 45-50 percent of them are different spoofed numbers used by those darned auto warranty groups. I still have another VOIP service and the funny thing is that when I check my call logs on it, some of the telemarketers at the beginning of my call screening list on it (meaning they were the first I added) keep dialing back periodically, even if they were routed to the number out of service message. The nice thing is that I don't have to deal with them since the phone doesn't ring. I will eventually get most of my telemarketers list moved over to Ooma.

Just three for me and it's all the same company. They won't stop calling so I started blacklisting them. Unfortunately they have multiple numbers so when they sneak through a call, I have to add the new phone # to the list.

Wayne, does your wife know that her mom is on the list? :)

The offer of a spare bedroom still goes - but it's a long way to Harstine Island.
