When subscribed to Anonymous Call Rejection, anyone who has their number blocked or set to private so you cannot see their information on your Caller ID will receive a message informing them that you do not accept blocked callers. They are also informed that they must remove the blocking and call back. All other calls will ring through as usual.
This feature does not block Unknown Name, Unknown, Unknown Number, or Out of Area calls. These calls are either from an area that does not support Caller ID services, or the number has never been in our database to be blocked.
