The online control panel allows users to blacklist and block incoming calls from certain numbers, international numbers or a range of numbers, for example all numbers starting 0871.
This is ideal for blocking nuisance calls or callers that you don’t want to speak with.
The blacklist enables you to add a list of numbers and comments via your online account to block. The blocked caller would hear a recorded message saying:
Calls are not currently being accepted from this number.
Numbers can be added to or removed from the blacklist instantly online via the control panel.
Blacklist up to 10 numbers – Free
Blacklist up to 50 numbers – £4.99 a month

Another similar free feature is Anonymous Call Rejection, or ACR for short. This feature blocks all calls made to the number where the callers have witheld their number.
More information is available on the Anonymous Call Rejection page.
What else can I do to stop nuisance calls?
Whilst many people don’t receive nuisance calls, it can be timewasting for those that do.
There is a way to reduce the amount of unsolicited cold calls to your business telephone numbers.
The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) is a free service. It is the official central opt out register on which you can record your preference not to receive unsolicited sales or marketing calls.
For further details and to register your telephone numbers with the Telephone Preference Service, visit the TPS web-site.
