Using Last Caller Barring

No ratings

This calling feature is the perfect way to stop nuisance callers. You can use it to block the last number to call you, or you can enter specific numbers you’d like to bar. Whenever someone tries to call you from a blocked number, they will hear a recorded message and you won't be disturbed with the call. You can block up to 100 different numbers using Last Caller Barring.
