BT7600 Overiding International Call Block

I want to block all international calls to stop nuisance calls. However I have three specific international numbers for friends/relatives who I still want to have access to.

 

Does making these specific numbers VIP numbers overide the general block on all international calls?

Spotted this on this review site;

If you read it, it says you can use the VIP whitelist to let certain international numbers through.

Re: BT7600 Overiding International Call Block

I set up my phone this morning and putting somebody on the VIP list DID NOT override the general international call block.

Crazy - can't be difficult to design a system to do this. Anyone got any other ideas on this???

Maybe, just maybe an idea. Caller ID for International calls is not yet fully implemented so you inputting a specific international number to allow it through might not have any effect if they come through as INTERNATIONAL

 

Maybe when Intenational Caller ID is fully implemented (supposed to be by Autumn 2014) you can then enter and store the number and then it MIGHT work.

 

Only a guess
