@gordow : Here are my comments.

 

1. Most new cordless (and other) home phones have a built in call block feature. Check yours to see.  You need to have call display, but I believe that's included with home phone, but you need it on your phone(s)

2. Rogers Home Phone manager may be free for you to use, however, I have tried to get it to work and gave up because the functionality is so poor.  You access it using MyRogers, then Home Phone:  See links below:

3. Call blocking is pretty useless these days.  Spammers/scammers change their phone numbers all the time so adding them to the call block feature is usually futile since the next time they call it'll be from a different number.

 

4. Luckily, Rogers marks many spammers and fraudsters with "Likely Spam" or "Likely Fraud" on call display.

 

5.  I have given all the people in my call directory a distinctive ring, so if I don't hear that from my phones, I'm fairly sure the incoming call is not something I want to take.  This is a feature of my Panasonic Cordless phone set.
