Blocking a number from my home phone.

Answered

Hello,

I own a Uniden Premium Dect 3035 +2.

There is a number that calls me on a regular basis that I would like to block.

I haven't been able to find anything in the manual so I was hoping there was something I could do on the carrier side?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

As far as your service provider is concerned, given the right circumstances a number can be barred. The best idea would be to go to the link I am providing below and check the direct Telstra information there;

Re: Blocking a number from my home phone.

I called Telstra and they can't block a particular number.  I've been told it's a security company that is doing a dial in each day to check the line.

 

For the life of me I can't remember who this security company is, I haven't used them in years. All Telstra can offer me is to search the internet.  So Telstra and happy to take my $150 a year for calls that are being made from my house phone to the mystery security company that goes nowhere. I queried this years ago and it still can't be rectified.

 

Surely this day and age, they should be able to stop an automated call being made.

Re: Blocking a number from my home phone.

Should you have a monitored alarm system installed, the alarm panel, can be programmed to report by a phone call from your end, everytime you turn the alarm on and off, usually to a 1300 number, costing 40 cents everytime on your account. The security company gets a kickback from Telstra every month, which is a nice money earner for the security company and Telstra, at your cost. Its called open and closing in the security industry. Scam (yes) Esspecially a home security system. One company who did this set of programming is Custom Security Services, who operate from Canberra ACT. How to fixit, have an alarm technician de programme the control panel. or simply pull out the phone socket to the panel.Also bear in mind, the security company, as long as your connected, can equally control your alarm panel from their end.Suggest you fix ASAP. NBN, has (to a degree stopped this practise) however if your on was called a Dialler Alarm still, your open to whats happening. Cheers.
