@57 VOIP isn’t that different when it comes to features such as blocking a number. Gone are the days of switch boards and old telephone wire. Even your basic landline is hitting the digital age once it gets to the exchange / crossing. The exchange / crossing for telephones have more in common then you think with network cables and servers. That’s why when you call using VOIP it can make it to a landline. The feature to block a call is pretty universal.
The issue is pure greed on Rogers part, it a basic service that customers should have at no extra charge.

You may indeed have this as part of your Rogers Home Phone package, but I found the Online Manager blocking functionality very difficult (impossible) to use. As well, IIRC, there are only about 30 slots available for blocking which is not nearly enough. As discussed earlier in this thread, call blocking is useless these days because telemarketers are always changing their numbers, so the call block number is of (almost) no use as soon as you enter it into your phone/blocking list.
