More powerful call blocking, please!

Post by kohnen » Sat Oct 23, 2010 3:47 pm

I'd like to see more powerful call blocking:

1) Block by name
2) Permit wildcarding in block by name.
3) Substring blocking by name - Anything containing "George" for example wouldn't ring through.

4) A powerful wildcarding for block by number - I should be able to give any 10 digits with any wildcards, and get those numbers blocked.

5) Malformed number blocking. If it isn't a valid 10 digit phone number, I should be able to automatically block it. It's pretty clear for example that "0000" is a spoofed number.

6) Toll free blocking. I should be able to tick one box and have any 800 877 866 number dumped.

A robust call blocking capability would be MOST appreciated, and would be a really good marketing tool for selling your product!

Yes, all this please!

And I'd like to see a list of blocked calls so I know what it's been doing.

I like #5.

most of the others have been suggested and it is up to Ooma if they are going to use those ideas, but I haven't seen #5 suggested yet. great idea!

Great list! I would like to see at least blocking by name or number, even before they call, and adding wildcarding would be a great addition.
