Question How to restrict incoming Blocked #'s

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to send calls directly to VM if the CID is blocked?

Bottom line: looking for an automated way to do this with out selecting Ignore.

I believe that would be a chore for your SP.

I don't think the 8700 offers this feature. Not that I've found anyways. I know some of my Motorola phones did. I don't answer phone number that doesn't have a name with it (not in my phone book) and there was an option that would send any number not listed in my phone book straight to the voicemail. It was very nice, but I haven't noticed any way of doing that for the 8700.

Yes you can

add an entry for "pause" as the number and set the ringtone to silent.

Or set your ringtone as none and set an exception for all categories/names in your addressbook. you can even set up do not disturb for non-excepted callers so that it goes direct to vm.

That would be great if I didn't have to go through 150+ phone book entries to do that. Plus, I like to change my ringer every week or so to change things up. So that is out for me.

You can set a ringer to ring for categories. Just set all categories to ring through to a particular profile. Doesn't matter if you have 10,000+ contacts. It would take 10 seconds and changing your ringtone would be the same as it always is.
