How do I block 1900, 005 and international calls from home?

Post by Franpa » Thu Oct 23, 2014 10:40 pm

I would like to block access to 1900, 005 and international phone calls that originate from my home phone (Landline), how do I go about doing this?

Okay, thank you for the assistance, I assume future communication will be via email.

Probably best not to call by phone but if you do, it would be best for it to be between say... 8:00AM and 1:30PM tomorrow (8AM to 3PM any other day).

We got a confirmation from our provisioning team that your service is already on Access Level where you can make local calls only.

Yes, so does that lock out access to services that charge you extra? Like for example: Sex hotlines, calling to vote for Big Brother/X-Factor/Australian Idle*, technical support hotlines etc.?

Edit: I did initially mean Australian Idol and the use of the word Idle was a mistake but upon review I've found "Idle" is both hilarious and more appropriate to what I think of the show.
