Block Numbers List

The Block Numbers List allows you to keep annoying callers from reaching you. Anyone calling from a blocked number will not be able to reach your EarthLink Voice phone (they'll hear ringing, but no answer. You'll hear nothing!)

Note: Even when a number is blocked, the person can still reach you by dialing from a different phone line.
