Vonage Specific Call Block Feature: Is it Offered in Canada?

Leave a Comment
Recently contacted Vonage Canada regarding the feature to block specific calls. The overall answer was the feature is available for Canada with the maximum limit of 50 unwanted callers. When the blocked contact tries to contact you, the person receives the message, you are unavailable.

The similar feature is available for US customers too via Vonage Extensions App. You can block any number except 911 and vonage customer care number. Please note that every blocked number request will undergo validation from vonage team.

You can block the selective phone numbers using Vonage Extensions app. Just open the recent tab and swipe the contact. You can also manually block by opening call settings. You can swipe them to remove too.

You can follow the steps below to block unwanted calls from recent:

  • Open Extensions App.
  • Tap Recents Image.
  • Swipe contact left.
  • Tap Block or Unblock.

Block/Unblock from Call Settings

  • Open Extensions App.

The interesting fact which I love the most is, I received a human response. The alternative options suggested are as follows:

Install Phone Tray Free:

We can download a free package called Phone tray. We will need a ‘voice capable’ modem with caller ID in order to use it, but it can pick up caller ID and respond with any of a series of messages including a standard ‘number disconnected’ message. You can configure this both by schedule, and number/ID. It was great to get rid of some junk fax calls I was getting. It runs on a computer so needs to be constantly on.

Buy Panasonic KX-TG6532B phone:

We can buy a device that blocks specific numbers like the Panasonic KX-TG6532B. It blocks up to 30 unwanted harassing numbers.

Do Not Call registration:

We shall register our self in the do not call registry. Additionally, if you have been called multiple times by this same number, you can refer it to the police, as it is definitely harassment.

Use Do Not Disturb feature:

Use Do Not Disturb to temporarily stop all incoming calls from ringing your phone. While Do Not Disturb is turned on, all incoming calls go to Voicemail if voicemail is turned on. If voicemail is not turned on, callers will hear a message that states you are not accepting calls. You can continue to place outgoing calls when Do Not Disturb is turned on.

To turn on: Dial *78 and enter 1 when prompted to turn on Do Not Disturb.

To turn off: Dial *79 and Enter 1 when prompted to turn off Do Not Disturb.
