After years of clamboring for Anonymous Call Rejection (blockage of calls from people you don't know, or who don't display their numbers via Caller I.D.) Vonage users have been welcoming this feature for months now.
Going through the non-Vonage-run Vonage Forums, it seems that while Anonymous Call Rejection is a welcome feature, some Vonage users view the availability of this feature as only a start.
What some Vonage users really want is Selective Call Block. There's even a Vonage Forum thread up about the issue.
Selective Call Block is what it says it is- an ability to block incoming calls from some businesses and people who you really don't want to talk with at certain times, or at all.
Who? Phone solicitors, bill collectors, former significant and insignificant others.
In the absence of Selective Call Block, at least one Vonage user and Vonage Forum Member has a workaround?
If you're getting annoying calls in the middle of the night, you could use DND (do not disturb). It's *78 to enable DND and *79 to disable it. Calls will go directly to VM, if you have VM enabled. Otherwise the caller gets a message that you're not taking calls at this time.
I don't care for Vonage's implementation of DND, but it's better than nothing. They need to add whitelists and scheduled enable and disable.
EzCo is, of course, 100% right.
