Till date Vonage does not block calls for a specific number. The feature on how to block a phone number on vonage is still under discussion. However, there are some alternatives on how to block a phone number using vonage.

I recently contacted Vonage regarding the feature to block specific calls. The overall answer was the feature is not available. The fact which I love the most is, I received a human response. They helped me with the alternative options. They did not leave me with saying only no.

The alternative options suggested are as follows:


Anonymous Call Block stops incoming calls from:  Anonymous, Private, Private Number, Private Name, Number Private, Caller Private, Restricted and Withheld.

To turn on: Dial *77 and Press 1 when prompted to turn on.
To turn off: Dial *87 Press 1 when prompted to turn off.

2. Install Phone Tray Free:


We can download a free package called Phone tray. We will need a 'voice capable' modem with caller ID in order to use it, but it can pick up caller ID and respond with any of a series of messages including a standard 'number disconnected' message. You can configure this both by schedule, and number/ID. It was great to get rid of some junk fax calls I was getting. It runs on a computer so needs to be constantly on.

3. Buy Panasonic KX-TG6532B phone:


We can buy a device that blocks specific numbers like the Panasonic KX-TG6532B. It blocks up to 30 unwanted harassing numbers.

4. Do Not Call registration:


We shall register our self in the do t call registry. Additionally, if you have been called multiple times by this same number, you can refer it to the police, as it is definitely harassment.



Use Do Not Disturb to temporarily stop all incoming calls from ringing your phone. While Do Not Disturb is turned on, all incoming calls go to Voicemail, if voicemail is turned on. If voicemail is not turned on, callers will hear a message that states you are not accepting calls. You can continue to place outgoing calls when Do Not Disturb is turned on.

To turn on: Dial *78 and enter 1 when prompted to turn on Do Not Disturb.
To turn off: Dial *79 and Enter 1 when prompted to turn off Do Not Disturb.

  2. This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep
    a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to
    say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  3. Yes it does work and very happy now - you get the first ring then the caller gets a busy signal.

  5. Wow. I can not believe Vonage doesn't have selective call block yet. I just joined Vonage this week and am very disappointed that Vonage does not have this basic feature. Selective call block is one of the most needed features. Such a shame that Vonage is crippled :(

    1. Hm.. it is very important to have the selective or specific call block feature. I have discussed a workaround that will help you to use the call block option. Visit http://vontech.blogspot.in/2014/01/vonage-specific-call-block-work-around.html for more information

  6. If you are receiving harassing calls, call the police. It is illegal to harass using the phone. With caller ID in hand, the police should take care of it.

  7. Great information on alternatives, thank you for posting this!
    I actually have a Panasonic phone in the same family (KX-TG7641) and it has the same feature. You go through the caller ID, find the name / number you want to block, then select save and choose call block, then it will confirm number again and press save again. Done!

  8. Actually Vonage just doesn't get it. I have pre ordered a device from From Call Control by Kedlin for use on a home or business system. I have used their smartphone application and loved it. Since pirate telephone telemarketers spoof move numbers than a Panasonic phone can handle this is the best solution. Can't wait to get it as the Do Not Call FOX solution simply doesn't work.
