Calling Services: Call Block

A flexible, easy-to-use way to block unwanted calls.


A service that allows you to block up to six different numbers from ringing your phone.


You are a busy professional and do not have time for unwanted calls. You can put Call Block to work for you by selecting up to six numbers to block. You can also choose when to block them - all day, just during meetings, or anytime you do not want to be interrupted by inconvenient calls. Callers will hear a courtesy message telling them you are unavailable. Call Block can be turned on and off as needed and you can change your blocked numbers at any time.

To activate Call Block
  1. Listen a for a dial tone then press *60 (Rotary customers: dial 11 instead of *).
  2. Listen to the recorded instructions. (The recorded instructions will tell you to press 0 to hear the instructions.) The instructions will give you options on how to add, remove, or review the numbers on your list. * They will also tell you how to add your last caller. If you are a new subscriber to this service or have not entered any numbers on your Call Block list, you will be instructed to add one in order to turn on the service.

Most customers can turn their Call Block service on and off by pressing 3 after they use the *60 Call Block access code.
