"Selective Call Rejection"

I am trying to setup the business pone to block all nuisance calls from the business, I am taking various steps. One of the things I was able to do with ITP (home VoIP provider) is setup a wild card for numbers / prefixes. IE 1-888.*.* block all 888 numbers 1-800.*.* so on and so forth, can I do this with Comcast? If not is there another way? I am aware of the implications of blocking all 800 services please don't respond about that piece. The biggest reason I want to do this is that there is a limited number of entries for Selective Call Rejection, and I want to take advantage of it as much as possible, I found many posts on the topic but nothing on how to optimize these lists to get the most out of them.

Re: "Selective Call Rejection"

Thank you so much for reaching out. At this time, there is not currently a way to block an entire phone number prefix but we are aware of the nuisance of telemarketing and robocalls and are working to get them stamped out. Currently these methods of call management are available: Manage call security and privacy and you also can add your number to the Do Not Call List: National Do Not Call Registry. And while I know that far more solutions are needed for this issue, we have been and will continue to work on this. I appreciate you reaching out and please let us know if there is anything else that we can assist with in the meantime.

Re: "Selective Call Rejection"

I guess that is an "answer" I believe that phones have become an intrusion into our lives and the fact that we can't better control the nusiance that they have become is somewhat dissapointing. 

 

Thanks for your time.
