Home Phone - Any Way to Block Specifc Numbers?

Postby Spenny » 06/18/2020

I know Fongo states that they do not provide call blocking services for home phone. But is there something I can buy that will allow me to do this while being compatible with Fongo? THanks

Take a look at freepbx (it's also free). If you have an old computer you can dedicate to it then you'll be able to block undesired numbers from calling in. You need very few knowledge to program it.

Unlike Freephoneline, there's no way for customers to use FreePBX with Fongo Home Phone.

A phone handset that allows you to block specific numbers would work. Also, something similar to https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-Landli ... B07V6MZCLR should work, but I've never used it.

Blocked calls will drop directly to the voicemail system.

With Freephoneline and Obihai ATAs, users can route known incoming telemarketing calls elsewhere.
