CallSafe: Ability to Enable Blocking, But Disable Screening

Submitted by cnwheeler 06-09-2019 | 4 Comments

Status: Not Right Now

I use BT Call Guardian on my home phone, which I use to send unknown numbers to my answerphone.

 

However, there are limits to the quantity of numbers I can block with Call Guardian, so would like to use TalkTalk's blocked number list and add to that my own blocked numbers and area codes.

 

What stops me using this is CallSafe's screening of unknown numbers.  I would like to be able to disable that, and still using CallSafe's Allowed and Blocked numbers and area codes.

 

In short, I would like to be able to enable CallSafe, but turn off the screening in CallSafe and have all those numbers pass through to my home phone, which I can then handle as I wish.

@cnwheeler Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately CallSafe doesn't have the functionality to deactivate certain features in order to do this and this isn't something that we're looking to implement. Thanks

@cnwheeler the way talktalk do it is like the bt phone we have that does the same type thing but u will find that what u have is good and may be better as talk talks call safe only started over a year or so a go so is quite new

In short, what I am trying to do is increase the size of my block list as it is limited within the BT phone and I have run out of area codes to block, and have the additional feature of having TalkTalk's own blocked numbers being added to that block list as others report those numbers.
