I keep getting sales calls from my ***** credit card companies. The calls come from different 800, 866 or 877 numbers but they all have the same caller ID name of "800 Service". I would like to create a blacklist that works based on the ID name, not just the number.

The only problem with that is that there are legitimate callers with "800 Service" as the caller id name. At least I've gotten some.

I just joined this forum to make this exact same suggestion! And I'm not too concerned if I miss 'legitimate' calls....if they are terribly 'legitimate' they can use a phone number registered under their company name. (Or they can reach me via email, or postal mail, or simply leave a message and I'll return it if I need to...since I can direct my blacklist to voicemail.) Most of the telemarketers won't ever leave a message anyway, so other than seeing it in your call log you still don't have to be bothered by the phone ringing.
