    How Anonymous Call Block works with other blocking features
    • Call Block - If you have Call Block and it is on, callers whose numbers are on your list will not reach you, even if your Anonymous Call Block service is off.
      Note: Call Block and Do Not Disturb will not block calls made to you from outside your local calling area or through operator assistance. You cannot block calls made from business phones.


    • Select Call Forwarding - If you have Select Call Forwarding and it is on, calls from people who have prevented the display of their numbers will be forwarded, if those numbers are on your Select Call Forwarding list.
    • Priority Call - If you have Priority Call and it is on, you will receive calls from people who have prevented the display of their numbers, if those numbers are on your Priority Call list.


    Numbers on Priority Call or Select Call Forwarding lists will reach you even if the numbers are blocked and you have turned on Anonymous Call Block.
