Call Barring How Does It Work?

We program these barring options into the exchange. You cannot add, change or remove them yourself. You need to ask us to add, change or remove your preferred barring option. (You can get barring options that you can turn on and off yourself by subscribing to the Call Control Feature.)

Call Barring How Much Does It Cost?

There is no charge for these barring options.
