It might be the number for their appointment desk or another number that would go through their IVR. There is really no reason for a legitamate company to display a bogus CID of 000-000-0000. :cool:
That is true. I can set the company phone system (where I work) to show any CID for all phones at work and even for each phone individually - or ranges of extensions for that matter. (Of course the name people see is taken from the carrier database.)

So I guess what I am wondering - is 000-000-0000 intentional or is it possibly a default in there system or in the carrier that might do that? It seeams odd a medical facility would do that ...was just musing.

But I'm assuming that won't block 775-555-2325, right?

Is wildcard support a possible future enhancement?

thanks

In Unix speak is this the same as 775* or 775???????, or is it *775*? Maybe more easily to understand, when you enter less than 10 digits, do the digits start with the area code, or is it a "contains" equation?

It doesn't let you blacklist 000-000-0000 or any number starting with zero.
