Block calls from unwanted numbers | Vodafone brings call filter system

Tired up receiving unwanted calls? irritated by calls from your old boy/girl friends? don’t want your boss to call you when you are on nice vacation :-) ?! Here is a service by Vodafone to block numbers which you don’t want to receive calls. There are two types of filtering system: Black List & White List.

Black List:

Add all the numbers which you don’t want to receive calls to “Black List”. To do so, you need to activate this service by calling 55144 or dialing *514# from your phone. Activation of service takes up to 24 hours according to Vodafone Website. After activation user can create black list by entering 10 digit mobile number & for non-mobile numbers, enter numbers with STD code starting from ZERO.

White List:

Add numbers to white list which you want to receive calls. Others numbers will not be able to call you. This will be helpful while in roaming, where you can receive calls only from people you choose.

Black List & White List both cannot be active at once. This service is charged Rs. 99 / Month which I think expensive for average users.

    Does MTNL also allow blocking certain numbers? I’m using pre-paid service in Delhi. Thanks!

    In’t there any software for blocking unwanted calls and sms besides depending on the mobile operators?

  13. says

    @ basant:

    I am not sure but I don’t think there is any such software available as this service is network dependent and not handset based :(

    Hi,
    Vodofone block calls using *514# is working like a charm. But it isn’t blocking sms’s from the blocked number. I think it is pretty lame if you get a number not existing when you call and “message delivered” when you send an sms.
    Is there a way to block sms also? (I know there are softwares that block messages. But what I would ideally want is to ensure “Delivery failed” message to go back.

    Hi,

    When I block a number using the Vodafone Call Filter, does this also block the smses sent from this number? Because otherwise it is just pointless.

    It’s good to know that there is a service out there that can block callers. I’m wondering what about callers who have unlisted numbers when they call. In the past, I’ve used http://www.numberinvestigator.com before to identify an unknown caller and was amazed at what they were
    able to find. Will we need to use a service similar to this to find the number before we can block them?
