Blocking outgoing calls

Hi. Is it possible to block calls to mobile phones? If not, is it possible to block all outgoing calls [apart from emergency services of course]?

Re: Blocking outgoing calls

Hiya,
We're not able to block calls to mobile phones, but we are able to block all outgoing calls for a nominal fee.
I think it's something like £5.87.

Re: Blocking outgoing calls

A similar query was raised as PUGIT 335  but did not raise much interest at the time?  Put into 'Hold' status after 8 months having only attracted two votes. Undecided   
If there is a resurgence of interest in this feature it could be re-opened, but there would need to be some reasonable case to justify the development effort that would be needed.
A big stick might be more immediate and effective Crazy

Can't read the PUG 335 so don't know if it's explained there but what development is needed? As this is a service sold by Openreach surely it's just a billing issue.

Re: Blocking outgoing calls

If I'm not mistaken, that may not include blocking operator 100, but I can vaguely recall some option somewhere in the past that involved using PIN numbers.

Re: Blocking outgoing calls

Good point didn't think about that work around for barred calls so looked up the feature and:

It is also essential to remember that calls can be made via an operator unless they are barred with code 4

So look like you have to use multiple codes to set it up.
