Anonymous Caller Rejection

I'm supposed to have this phone extra for quite some time yet tonight and last night i've had calls where the caller witheld their number. Having just read the thread about caller display and it not being available in some areas I was wondering if this is the case with Anon Caller Rejection too? I'm in PE6 and if this is the case VM owe me some money and a big apology.

Re: Anonymous Caller Rejection

Did the automated voice on '1471' actually say the caller withheld their number or just that they don't have the number

Re: Anonymous Caller Rejection

On my phone if the number is not present it will say unavailable or the display will be blank otherwise it will say WITHHELD.

Some callers cheat as I have seen numbers like 000000. I dont know whether that gets round ACR

I have had them myself when I used to have anonymous caller rejection on my account, when you ring 1471 you get a message that you were called and the caller left no number or similar.

Re: Anonymous Caller Rejection

ACR will only block calls that originate from a switch that is blocking the number (I.E permanent number withhold or 141), whereas a circuit or switch that doesn't have a valid number (or no number at all) will still get through ACR. This system is in place on the emergency services switchboard to allow their calls to get through any barring restrictions but unfortunately this method is spreading into the world of sales!

Silent Call Guard is another good free option in the fight against silent calls...

And if you want to spend some pennys then I have heard good things about their hardware based call blocker service...

I don't pay for ACR, never have done. Does it depend on what package you are on?

I remember from either early in this thread or another thread than some franchises at one point gave it for free but if you cancelled it and some time later reordered it you would be charged for it.

Re: Anonymous Caller Rejection

The codes I use for Anonymous Call Rejection are:

*227# to activate
#227# to deactivate
*#227# to check if operational

Worth mentiong ACR only blocks calls that are 'withheld' and not calls that are 'unavailable' and I believe these codes don't work on all VM phones - perhaps something like ex C&W exchanges or something equally technical like that
It is free of charge for me and always has been. I turn it on and off all the time, depending on circumstances.
