Call Screen User Guide

No more unwanted callers. Call Screen re-routes unwelcome calls. When unwanted callers dial your number, an announcement informs them that you're not accepting calls. Your telephone doesn't ring. You can divert up to 12 phone numbers at one time. All other calls will get through.

Notes:

  • Call Screen works with direct-dialed from most areas.
  • Call Screen does not screen out "Unknown Numbers".
  • If you have activated Call Forwarding, incoming calls from your Call Screen list will still receive the recorded announcement and not be forwarded.
  • You can add a private number to your Call Screen list only if it is the last call you received. To add it, follow the instructions for adding the last incoming call. When reviewing your Call Screen list, this entry will be voiced back as "private".
  • To screen out a call, the call must be from an area where Call Display services are available.
