      Re: Blocking a withheld number

      The telephone equipment has no idea what the number is when it is withheld, so you can't block it without blocking all withheld numbers.

      If you are receiving malicious or nuisance calls from somebody, you should first ask them to stop calling you, then if the calls continue, you should report them.

      If you just want to stop somebody calling you, where no malice is involved on the other persons part, but you would prefer not to speak to them, then you can either block all withheld numbers or invest in a TrueCall box, which can be configured to force callers calling from withheld numbers to state who they are, giving you the option to accept or reject the call.

      If it is someone giving you grief with nuisance calls, download some nasty sounds, put them on an MP3 player with plenty of volume and hold it next to the mouthpiece when you pick up the phone. They will soon desist. Hear are some choice sounds to start you off -

      'Hear' was a pun, but nobody noticed.
