How to Use Call Filtering to Stop Unwanted Calls

Do you get a lot of unwanted calls? As one of the most common problems faced by telemarketers, that’s no surprise. In fact, just about everyone gets phone calls from people they don’t want to talk to. If you have ever wished you could stop receiving these types of calls, call filtering may be your best solution. Read on to learn about what call filtering is and how you can use it to stop unwanted calls on your own terms.

What are the popular types of call filtering

There are several popular types of call filtering. One type is called white list filtering, which only allows calls from a pre-selected group of numbers, like friends and family members. If a caller’s number does not belong on the white list, their call will be blocked. Another type of call filtering is blocking or blacklist filtering. When this type of filter is set up, it automatically blocks any phone number that has tried calling before–even if they belong on the white list. With either blocking or blacklist call filters, calls that have been dialed manually will get through regardless of whether they’re on the white list or not. One other option for call blocking is geographical filtering, which allows certain contacts and areas to have direct access while others don’t.

Why use call filtering

The simplest and most basic definition of call filtering is the ability to have any number of phone numbers and contacts appear in a list where calls will be blocked. This function is a very effective way to decrease the number of unwanted telephone calls that come through to you as well as people who might be looking for fraudulent reasons. In order to use this feature, all you need to do is contact your provider and they will help you input what number you want blocked if not all numbers. The settings can vary depending on your needs, but one easy way would be scheduling a period of time during which no phones are allowed ring during.

Things to remember when setting up call filtering

When you set up call filtering, you will typically be able to block certain types of calls. Some things you can filter out are the following:

1) Not knowing what the caller’s number is- With today’s new technology there are a variety of ways numbers can show up on your phone. Most people these days will have their own mobile number displayed as well as any other number they might have used that day. For example, if someone is traveling and changes from one network in one country and then another network in another country, sometimes their phone will display two different numbers. This would make it impossible for callers to know which number should be blocked if they had just looked at the incoming call screen.

Where should you place your phone in your home?

There are many factors that come into play when deciding where you should place your phone. One consideration is where you spend the most time in your home, or the room where you want to work the most. If there’s a specific area of your home that tends to be quieter than others, this may be a good spot for it.

Examples of different types of call filtering

Voice call filtering can block calls from certain numbers, filter out unwanted callers (children or telemarketers), and provide a voice message when you do not want to take the call. There are three different types of filtering:

1) blacklist filtering,

2) whitelist filtering, and

3) blacklisting with whitelisting. You should use blacklisted with whitelisting if you want all numbers except the ones in your list.
