In this section, I will be trying to explain everything I can think of regarding how the CPR Call Blocker's work and what to expect when they are up and running. *CALLER ID IS VITAL AND NEEDED FOR THE CPR CALL BLOCKER TO WORK* What type of calls can the CPR Call Blocker block? The CPR Call Blocker can block any type of call, whether anonymous or visible on the caller ID. Visible numbers are blocked via the BLOCK NOW button or # 2 buttons from extension DECT handsets. All anonymous type calls with no caller ID number shown need to be blocked via certain programming codes that are all listed in the user guide manuals. I have attached them below for your reference, also. * * 7 # (beep) 7 * # (beep) = BLOCKS ALL WITHHELD/PRIVATE calls * * 7 # (beep) * # (beep) = BLOCKS ALL INTERNATIONAL/OUT OF AREA calls * * 7 # (beep) 6 * # (beep) = BLOCKS ALL VOIP/IP ROGUE DIALLER calls * * 7 # (beep) # (beep) = BLOCKS ALL UNAVAILABLE/UNKNOWN calls * * 7 # (beep) 0 # (beep) = BLOCKS ALL '0' DIGIT SPOOF calls * * 7 # (beep) 0 0 # (beep) = BLOCKS ALL INTERNATIONAL NUMBERS WITH CALLER ID calls What happens when a call comes in and how is it blocked? When a call comes in, your phone should ring as normal unless the calling number is pre-programmed on the list of 200/5000 blocked numbers stored in the unit. If the calling number is on the BLOCK LIST, then the Call Blocker will block it before your phone has a chance to ring. If it is not on the BLOCK LIST, then the phone will ring as normal after the first suppressed ring so that the caller ID can be indentified. Visible numbered calls can be blocked via the BLOCK NOW button at any time during a conversation or before answering the phone. Just simply press the BLOCK NOW button and the call is instantly terminated and the number is instantly added to your BLOCK LIST and cannot call you again unless you remove it. The # 2 feature is slightly different. This requires the phone to be answered first and then you simply press # then 2 on your phone's keypad and then simply hang up. The number isn't always terminated this way, so hang up after pressing the required buttons. With this feature, the number has to be visible on the caller ID, also. How does the BLOCK LIST button on the v.202/v.5000 work? The BLOCK LIST button shows you the entire list of blocked numbers that you have added to your blocked list since obtaining the CPR Call Blocker in ascending order. Once in the BLOCK LIST menu, you can then use the UP and DOWN navigation buttons to scroll up or down the entire list of blocked calls. If you wish to then delete ANY of these numbers or types of anonymous calls from the BLOCK LIST so that you can be called again, you can by simply pressing DELETE on any of the numbers or anonymous type of calls displayed in the list. How does the CALL LIST button on the v.202/v.5000 work? The CALL LIST button shows you the last 20 numbers that have recently called you in ascending order from 01-20. Once in the CALL LIST menu, you can then use the UP and DOWN navigation buttons to scroll up or down the entire list of recent calls. If you wish to then add ANY of these numbers or types of anonymous calls to the BLOCK LIST, you can by simply pressing BLOCK NOW on any of the numbers or anonymous type of calls displayed in the list. What do the numbers or information on my v.202/v.5000 Call Blocker screen mean? *The screen on the Call Blocker should look like this when it is setup for the very first time* (The following image is for illustration purposes only and your call blocker will never look like this) NUMBER OF CALLS BLOCKED = This shows you the total amount of calls added to the BLOCK LIST. TYPE OF HIDDEN CALL = These types of calls will flash along with -------------- when any type of anonymous callers try calling you. (These calls can only be blocked via their appropriate programming codes in the user guide) DELETE = This is used to DELETE numbers or anonymous calls from your BLOCK LIST & CALL LIST. BLOCK CALLER = This is used to block any visible calling number. Simply press this and the call is terminated and the number is added to the BLOCK LIST. BLOCKED NUMBER COUNTER = This is used to tell you how many times a number has been successfully blocked. In order to view this information, you need to scroll through the BLOCK LIST and the number will change for all the different calls added, which means the number in question has been blocked successfully that amount of times. LCD SCREEN = This shows you the entire display. It is 3 inches wide and doesn't have a backlight. BLOCK LIST = This button takes you into your BLOCK LIST menu where ALL of your blocked calls are stored. You can then use the UP or DOWN navigational buttons to scroll through the entire list. CALL LIST = This button takes you into your CALL LIST menu where the last 20 numbers of your most recent callers are stored. You can then use the UP or DOWN navigational buttons to scroll through the entire list. If there's anything else I can think of, then I will add them to this thread in due course.
