BT call blocker. Personal black list full!

Usual call from an IP address. Call 1572 to block it, only to be told my personal black list is full!

1) How large is it please?
2) Is there a way to block all IP based calls (currently 90% of my spam calls on landline)

Which basically says BT are wasting their time?
They are in a far better position to block all IP calls.
(I have one btw, just hoped for better from BT)

Do you know how many numbers my blacklist can hold?

Hi @pe2dave ,

Your personal blacklist can hold 100 numbers.  There are many posts on the forum complaining that this is not enough.

Call protect is good at blocking a lot of calls but is not perfect.. I foy want toal blocking then you need a call barring phone.

I have removed some of the oldest items from my black list..say 18 - 24 months old and they have not recurred ...yet!!

Did this on theory that spammers often change their pseudo numbers after a while so keeping them on my block list serves no purpose and occupies space which could be used for other numbers.

Fair point.

 

Bit disgusted that BT won't let me block all VOIP calls.

 

I've had enough. Going to try the BT8500 - see if that helps.

I can't even get Call Protect to work. It won't let me add numbers, hasn't worked since I added it so I've removed it today.
