pushing "Block" not seeming to 'block'

    I've gotten an amazingly few calls since putting the CPR202 on my phone... so that's cool.

    I HAVE gotten a few, and have tried #2 from my handset, but the call doesn't hang up, and the device does not show an increment in the number blocked.

    So yesterday and today, I have gone out to the device itself and pushed the Block button, and get the same effect.

    The only thing I can think of is both of those showed "Unavailable", and I do not have the generic "Unvailable" blocked because friends of ours have their phone set to 'private'. Is that going to keep me from individually blocking calls?

    The BLOCK NOW button and # 2 feature only blocks visible numbered calls on the caller ID display.
    To block anonymous type calls with no caller ID, you need to program the unit with the various programming codes
    listed in the user guide manual. I hope that helps?...

    ok thanks... it's as I expected.

    We talked to the people whose phone is 'Private' and they said they would 'unblock' when they call us to avoid the problem, so I'm going back in and blocking all "Unavailable" ... awesome :)

    That post hasn't been moderated yet, but it's been going on 48 hours since I wrote it, and did the bulk "unavailable" block. I have to tell you guys I'm a true devotee... that phone has been absolutely 100% silent since... nothing, nada, zip... I had to push 'talk' and get a dial tone to make sure it was working!

    We're glad you're both happy with your call blockers.

    Like WynApse, our nuisance calls seem to have gone down a lot since installing Call Blocker v202 two days ago. I do understand, as Kevin explained above, that "The BLOCK NOW button and # 2 feature only blocks visible numbered calls on the caller ID display. To block anonymous type calls with no caller ID, you need to program the unit with the various programming codes..." I have programmed the unit with **7#*# to block "International/Out of Area" anonymous calls, but SOME "Out of Area" calls are still getting through. Anything more that I can do?

    Yes, make sure you input ALL of the codes as numbers are sometimes spoofed to show different types of caller ID strings.

    Good info. Should the block now button or the 2 button on my phone work on the v108 cpr? There is no display on that version but my phone does display the number calling. Thanks for your help.
