How to block a phone number?

Since acquisition of my new phone with Fido (since May 21, 2012), i started to receive calls from 1-877-866-9930.  They hang-up as soon as I answer and once it shipped me ``on hold``!  I believe it could be a spam call, therefore I wish to block their number from my IPhone 4S.  How can I do so?  Thanks in advance

Re: How to block a phone number?

Fido does not offer call blocking. I recommend registering your mobile number with the National Do No Call List which can be found at https://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/. Once listed, if they call you again you can report them to the Government of Canada. Granted you have no previous ties to the company calling. For example, if you left Bell to sign up with Fido, Bell is exempt from this service because you have a past relationship with them and they are allowed to phone you still. In addition, you might have to change your phone number or just ignore them when you see their caller ID. Indeed, I also wish Fido offered call barring.

Well, maybe Fido should darned well consider adding it!

 

I have NEVER had so much spam texts and robot calls being on Fido.

 

I had one in a blue moon on Rogers.

My Wife and my mom are on Bell and they get none.

My friends are on Telus and they get none.

 

Is there some inside leak or something?

You can block it easily.

 

Go on the App Store and download the Fido My account app, just search for the keyword 'FIDO'

 

Then download the first one 'Fido My Account'

 

when you're done downloading and installing it, open the App and go to the 'Services Section' and chose the iphone special pack ( or whatever its called ) and there it should be pretty much common sense you will see block number option and then you know what to do Tongue

 

 

You're welcome and have a nice day.


incorrect. That only allows you to access ETM, which does allow you to block texts but not calls. OP was asking about calls.

I'm getting the same number a couple of times a day. And no answer on the other end. Driving me crazy. Any solutions?

Hi, I am just wondering if you still receive calls from the number because I receive calls from this number too. Exactly the number you received. It's bugging me. I started my new phone with Fido early this year & this incident just occur a few days ago. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

Hey Khalsasikh!

Your message is empty. Did you have any question?

Please note that nick67's answer is accurate and that the only other option at this time is to have your phone number changed.

Re: How to block a phone number?

Why exactly does Fido not offer this service? How is this possible? This company has been around for over a decade.

Will this be possible soon?
