Say goodbye to nuisance calls - Never again nuisance calls

Say goodbye to nuisance calls

Sales calls, alleged lottery wins and annoying surveys – most of the time, unwanted landline calls cost not only time, but also your nerves. With a FRITZ!Box you can block telephone numbers from which you do not want to receive calls.

Blocking calls is easy

You can configure up to 32 call blocks in your FRITZ!Box. If you want to block more than 32 phone numbers, you can also block entire ranges of numbers. Or create a separate telephone book for all of the undesired callers and have the FRITZ!Box automatically block them all.

Anonymous calls can also be blocked. When no telephone number is transmitted the call can be either blocked or automatically routed to an internal answering machine.

Watch out for service numbers

What's more: With a FRITZ!Box you can also block outgoing calls to save money. Many telephone numbers with the prefix "0900" are premium-rate, often racking up ridiculous charges. To spare your phone bill from nasty surprises, and to make sure such numbers aren't dialed by accident, you can block these numbers. If in rare cases you do need to place a call to a blocked range of numbers, you can set up a rule to this effect.

Read here how to block incoming calls from and outgoing calls to undesired telephone numbers.
