Anonymous Call Rejection
Reject all incoming calls that have been blocked or marked as private or anonymous calls. Please note some calls do not have caller ID information, because of equipment limitations of the caller’s service provider.
If you want to pre-select specific numbers to block, learn about selective call rejection (KS customers) or terminating call manager, a service that allows blocking of unwanted numbers (MN, ND and SD customers).
