Call barring

If you wish to block or bar certain numbers from calling you, you can use the Call Barring feature. This feature needs to be at the top of the plan before any other options. 

Open up your call plan as normal, click to add technology, then add the Call Barring feature. 

Enter the phone number you wish to bar.  

If you wish to bar all mobile calls then simply type 07 into the box. For withheld numbers you need to simply tick the Withheld Numbers box and click Save

This will now create two call routes on your call plan. Your original normal plan has now moved under the GREEN arrow on the left-hand route. You now need to tell the plan what to do with the BARRED numbers on the right.  

Click the BARRING icon. Choose what barred callers will hear when they call your number: 

  • add an audio announcement that tells them the call is blocked and end the call. 
  • give them the option to leave a voicemail. 

Don’t forget to SAVE the overall plan once you are finished to active the changes.
