Once I get home tonight I will check the "wording" for private number. My cell company is cingular. I will also have someone try it that their number is always blocked to see what happens. Once I have more information I'll place another post.


It will be intereting to see what it comes in as. I have had friends try it from Cingular, Verizon and T-Mobile cell phones and all of then have worked. Cingular comes in as "anonymous" but I guess this can be different whether you were AT&T or Congular and what region you are from.

Two things that I noticed were:

1. If a call was received designated as "out of area" it it treated as an anonymous call (Verizon does not do so). This can be nice or bad depending on certain situations.

2. The call logs (vonage account activity page) logs a blocked call and also flags it as an "F (Forwarded to ANONYMOUSCALLMESSAGE)". This is a nice feature. At the very least it allows one to know how many anonymous calls were received in a given time frame and the exact times of the call.

OK .. finally had a chance to verify it .. 1st line - Private name
2nd line - Private Number

This is the same way it was prior to activating. I also had someone call that their number always came up private (verizon) and it was still the same way, so it is not a cingular problem. Maybe it's an area code problem. - I'm in the 854 area code so if someone else is in the same area code I would be curious if ACB works for them.

I find it amazing how the people trying to get calls past ACB will get creative. It makes it difficult for a programmer to come up with a good method for ACB and they constantly have to examine the changes. Maybe that is why Vonage hesitated. You have "Private Name", "Private Number", "Anonymous", and "Number Blocked". I had a good one yesterday. "847-000-0000". Sure, they could add a block for xxx-000 but how far do they go? Caller ID is one of those beasts that opened Pandora's Box. Of course it is the people you really don't want to call that try to get past yet.

I also find it interesting that some people who want ACB also want to be able to program their own Caller ID. Human nature is definitely a science of its own.

Again, thanks to Vonage for turning it on. At least it will cull out many if not all of those annoying calls. Smile

I just checked my account and, although anonymous calls are logged, they are not flagged as a forward.

Well. I am not sure why the flag doesnt appear for you, but it does on the activity page in a little green icon next to the call for me.

Another thing I noticed was that they seem to be deducting minutes for when enabling/disabling the feature. Since I have a base plan it matters. I think this is not right.

I guess they still have bugs to work out.

I have the annual unlimited plan, so it doesn't matter to me. However, when I checked the itemized call it does show the minutes for the *77 call, but it lists it as "free."

I do not see this. I have the 500 minute plan as well and my minutes are not deducted. Since they are free calls (you can see this in your logs), they will not get deducted from your minutes.

The ACB works good from my testing. I noticed a call got through with "unknown" as the name and "Unknown Number" for the number on the caller-id. I guess this doesn't necessarily imply a caller-id blocked call though.
