Why "Blocking" a Phone Number on a Landline Doesn’t Work

The truth is that when it comes to blocking a phone number on a landline, the traditional suggestions just don’t work. Landline service providers will try to upsell you on features like call rejection or call blocking as a way to prevent certain numbers from invading your home. But these options are not good solutions.

Below are some of the most common suggestions for blocking a number on your landline phone.

Landline Blocking Fail #1: Blocking a Specific Number

Telephone service providers claim to offer a blocking feature to its customers. To activate, customers are required to call the service provider and request the specific feature.

In most situations, customers will be directed to dial *60 from their landline phones. If successful, you are connected to a recording, confirming that the call blocking feature is live on your landline phone service. If this has not yet been enabled, you are then prompted with steps to activate.

After a customer has successfully activated their call blocking features, they now have to go through the tedious process of actually adding the specific phone numbers you want to block. 

You read that correctly: you as the customer have to manually enter specific phone numbers you would like to block using your landline phone. On top of this, most service providers have a maximum number of phone numbers you can enter. In some cases, there is a limit of only twelve phone numbers a customer can block!

So not only is the landline call blocking process very manual and limited in scope, this feature only blocks numbers you know of. That means if an unwanted caller calls from a different number, your phone will still ring.

On top of that, traditional call blockers like CPR and the Panasonic Call Blocker only stop 5% of unwanted calls.

Seriously.  (You can learn more here if you're interested in a side by side comparison →)

What good is a call blocker if 95% of the calls you don't want still get through?

Why imp is different #1

First, imp stops 100% of unwanted calls.

And yes, we mean 100%. Guaranteed. Or your money back.

On top of that, imp makes blocking a phone number on a landline as simple as swiping.

At setup, imp automagically syncs the contacts in your smartphone with your landline. From there, your personal imp checks every single call that comes in. If it's a caller imp recognizes, your phone rings. Otherwise imp silently handles the call for you.

If you see someone tried calling and you want to block them, all you have to do is swipe on the call in your imp app and add to your Redlist. These callers will never be allowed to make your phone ring or leave you a message ever again.

Landline Blocking Fail #2: Blocking Anonymous Landline Callers

Similar to the first option of blocking specific phone numbers, relying on your service provider to help block anonymous landline callers is not much more productive. The process is somewhat less cumbersome, but unfortunately, is somewhat less successful as well.

To activate this feature, most service providers require you to dial *77 from your landline phone. Doing so will activate your landline’s blocking feature. However, this feature is only available if you have Caller ID available on your landline.

And once again, traditional call blockers are ineffective against stopping anonymous callers trying to hide their information.

Why imp is different #2

Do you receive calls that show up as "Private"? Or "Unknown"? How about "Anonymous"? In most cases, bad guys will disguise their number in hopes that you answer the phone.

Because imp is focused on making sure only the calls you want can get through, it means that imp handles these unknown calls for you, no problem.

No special codes. No hoping it will work. No wishing the bad guys will quit calling. imp just makes them stop.

Landline Blocking Fail #3: Signing Up for the National Do Not Call Registry

When it comes to blocking a phone number on a landline, most frustrated people start with Here you register your phone number, enter your email, and confirm that you do not want to receive telemarketing calls.

However well-intentioned this government service is meant to be, it does not work. Spam callers completely disregard this registration, spamming your landlines all day and night.

There are a number of reasons why the "Do Not Call" Registry is ineffective. And if you're interested you can read about it here →

Why imp is different #3

If the Do Not Call Registry actually worked, we wouldn't be here.

And neither would you.

The truth is that the Do Not Call Registry actually does not - and cannot – stop callers who don't follow the law. This is direct quote from the FCC's website.

That's why we started imp. Because no one - from the goverment to the teleco companies - were serious about stopping these scam callers.

And the best time to stop an unwanted call is before it even starts.
