Call Barring Password

Hi there,

 

I am looking for my call barring password, I have a Data Only subscription on my tablet (it also has a Phone app) and keep receiving incoming calls from unknown numbers. I naturally reject these calls when they come in as they are billed at $1 per minute.

 

I've seen through other posts on here that others have used call barring to disable this as it is quite a disturbance, on a daily basis I receive one or two calls at a time. As for a data only device I would expect that this should be disabled.

 

Thanks,

@daereth

Re: Call Barring Password

Update for the community:


The default pass for in-phone call barring (of outgoing international call's and) setting seems to be 0000, but these "Fido service" settings cannot be changed by the  phone alone. At least on my phone model, plan etc.


Finally, verything was set up very fast, exactly as I needed through the Customer support' online chat.
International Calls Calling were blocked. All the rest remain unchanged.


Thank you!

Re: Call Barring Password

Hi,

 

I have a good deal offered at the moment by Fido and will add mobile data to one of my lines.

Before that, I would like to disable all international outgoing phone calls - but leave the International SMS  available.

The reason is that I have now more International contactsto the list.

Applications like Skype, Viber and Facebook or myself - accidentally may attept such calls out and they are expensive.

I tried to use Phone "call barring" options - Samsung Galaxy J1 but such modification it is not accepted?!

 

So shortly:

Could you help me to disable disable all international outgoing PHONE CALLS, but leave ON the outgoing SMS (which are included to my plan) ?

 

Thank You

Re: Call Barring Password

Can you tell me what is the call barring password for a Samsung S9?   

 

I tried to block incoming and outgoing calls and it required a barring password.  I tried 0000 and my screen log-on passwords and they did not work. 

 

I have a data only Fido plan and the S9 was not bought from Fido.

Hey @tsk888

 

I have moved your post to this thread since it's about the same subject. 

 

You can find more information on this in the solution posted above. 

 

Restricting incoming and outgoing calls is something that has to be done with customer service. Note that doing so will also block your ability to send and receive SMS, in case this is something that you plan to use your phone for. 

 

If that works for you, you can reach out to customer service to have that set up.
