The problem is even when putting it on block, sometimes it will go into voicemail. In that option, is there a setting you are able to change it?.
Why did this post get moved out the Windows Phone sub-forum? This is a Windows Phone feature. It is not a general Rogers feature.
Currently Rogers has created a new system that would do what you are requesting. It is a free service called Rogers One Number, It would allow you to block incoming calls from certain numbers as well as alot of other features. I would recommend checking into this service if you are looking for a call blocking service.
I have read into Rogers one number. Most of the issues are with registration as long as the browser being used is up to date along with Java and other applicable software.
with most phones .. even including some land lines , you can add a line to automatically be sent to voicemail , which for most scams just causes them to hangup.
On a cell phone/smart phone , just make a contact called ignored numbers.. add the annoying numbers and click the send to voicemail button , which will make the call come through for about 1 second before going to voice mail.. no ringer will happen.
On some land line phones you can do the same thing.. more difficult , but some do have the feature , would have to look at your manual to see how to do it.
As for paying 5 bucks a month for this feature.. bah.
Best bet is if you see a number you do not know which is either long distance or unknown/private , do not pick up.
Most scams and autocallers work by attempting a call to all numbers.. if the number does not pickup on the first attempt it is removed from the list.. if you do pickup , your number stays on the list , which can stay on list for anywhere from a month to 1000 millions years.
If you get the calls often , say twice a day , before 8am , or after 9pm , or if its a scam attempting to collect information such as your name , address, social security number. Call the cops , not 911 but the non emergancy number. They will direct you to a toll free number that deals with phone scams , you can give info to them , they do stop these things , might take them a while but they do.
Good luck trying to find Call Manager on this website. Good luck on trying to set it up. I understand you must have a microsoft/windows mail account. If not, no go. Also, it doesn't work if your 'puter is Windows 8 or higher.................
The 2 months of total frustration I went through with Rogers on this problem just isn't worth the money I'm saving for my wireless home phone. How can they offer something their technology can't even support. I didn't even get a refund for the service I couldn't use. I'm so done.
