Can I blacklist an entire area code?

Post by mike.a.p » Fri May 13, 2011 9:23 am

I have junk marketing calls from the same named caller ID, but from reported different numbers. Is it possible to use wild-cards for my personal blacklist, to block all calls from say this area code?

No, this currently cannot be done. However, I have seen many request from users for this feature. Hopefully it will be added.

One may hope Ooma will add this ability. From a programming standpoint it's so very easy to do!

I too would like to see this feature added. In fact, I've made a similar request in the Feature Request section of this Forum:

Another vote, in just a month or so here I have seen countless requests for this too, it would be a plus and MAJOR selling point for Ooma, come on do it Ooma you know it's easy! :D

I'll add my vote for this feature. I'm sick to death of the "lower your credit card interest rate" spam calls. Most of them seem to originate from a similar area code and, quite frankly, It's fairly unlikely that I'll be getting any legitimate calls from these areas.

RE: "lower your credit card interest rate" spam calls

Recently such calls are shown on my call log as starting with "+".
I am getting one or more every day.

The numbers following the "+" changes everytime such a call is received.

Can such numbers be handled by the blacklist?

I would also like area code blocking. Especially area codes like 849 = Dominican Republic -- 876 = Jamaica - etc.
Don't think it would be hard to add this feature and as stated before it would be a great selling feature while helping people to avoid all of the scams that come out of there.
