Not familiar with Smart call blocker?
Want to know more?
Smart call blocker is an effective call screening tool, which allows your phone system to screen ALL calls.
If you are not familiar with it or want to know more before you start, read on and learn how to change to call screening mode+, and perform the necessary preparations before use.

So… what is Smart call blocker?

Smart call blocker filters robocalls and unwanted calls for you, while allowing welcome calls to get through.
You can set up your lists of welcome callers and unwelcome callers. The Smart call blocker allows calls from your welcome callers to get through, and it blocks calls from your unwelcome callers.
For other unknown calls, you can allow, block, or screen these calls, or forward these calls to the answering system.
With some easy configurations, you can set to only filter robocalls by asking the callers to press the pound key (#) before the calls are put through to you.
You can also set the Smart call blocker to screen calls by asking the callers to record their names and press the pound key (#). After your caller completes the request, your telephone rings and announces the caller’s name. You can then choose to block or answer the call, or you can forward the call to the answering system. If the caller hangs up, or does not respond or record his/her name, the call is blocked from ringing through. When you add your welcome callers to your Directory or Allow list, they will bypass all screening and ring directly to your handsets.

Move to Setup if you want to screen all unknown calls.

+ With Call screening active, Smart call blocker screens and filters all incoming calls from numbers or names that are not yet saved in your Directory, Allow list, Block list, or Star name list. You can easily add incoming phone numbers to your Allow list and Block list. This allows you to build up your lists of allowed and blocked numbers, and Smart call blocker will know how to deal with these calls when they come in again.
