I get daily annoying calls from telemarketers regarding interest deals. I have asked to take me of the calling list with no success. I noticed that all these calls have tel. numbers ending in (xxx) xxx-0835. I have so far blocked 26 of these numbers but they keep coming. Wish there were a way to selectively block all numbers endin with "0835". Would be a very nice feature to have.

We've had Vonage almost 10 years with zero problems. The only thing i would suggest is to increase the amount of #'s that can be blocked. With robocalls, telemarketers using sequential #'s to get around blocked #'s 50 is eaten up in a NY second! Between 2 cell phones and the house vonage we get an average of 15 unwanted, annoying calls a week - AFTER being put on the National Do Not Call Registry.

Is there no way to block a area code or all area codes except the one I live in?? Kids use this phone, we have been getting a few telemarketers. I have both a business and personal number through vonage. This concerns the personal.

None of your present solutions, like writing down a fake number, booting up my computer, logging on to your web site, finding the blocked number list, only to have to do the same thing 10-15 times a day. Your technology is 10 years behind the times. The spammers and scammers are driving me up the wall and you offer no quick, easy way to block calls that use caller ID's that you have never heard of or just don't care. This is Vonages biggest issue, and all you want to do is talk about your web site. Get to work or begone. You're not the only VOIP anymore in case you haven't noticed, and are one of the most expensive. If I see no progress beyong fiddling with your website, you're fired. Never any coherent responce, not even "we're working on it" I see no progress at all in Vonage addressing the main thing that makes us want to throw the phone against the wall. I can block calls easier on my mobile phone, why should I keep you?

In addition I want you to know I've signed up for the state and federal "Do not call List", blocked all robo-calls, filled up the 30 numbers my Panasonic phone lets me do with 2 clicks on the keyboard, called and written you many times, taken every survey, and begged and pleaded with Vonage to get with it. Nothing but silence except the phone ringing about every 20 minutes with another spoofed call, that Vonage cannot or willnot do anything to stop. Your present complicated trip to your website is useless. Your caller id block is a joke. Signed, a South Florida resident who will stop paying you, unless you fix this issue. I can't stand it any longer, and you are worse than useless in helping stop this invasion of the phone scammers.

ATTENTION - block ALL numbers from area code 876. They are scammers from Jamaica trying to scam you by telling you that you've won $ 10 million in the Jamaican lottery. They have at least 23 different phone numbers that I have blocked. They all begin with area code 876.

How do you block an area code? I would like to block all calls beginning with 011 +6135244 which are scammers pretending to be Microsoft. They change the last four digits for each call so have 9999 numbers to play with. Blocking 50 numbers does not help. The number is supposedly an Australian one but I don't believe it!

As a information system professional with multiple decades of experience, I would suggest some improvements to call blocking:

1. This would perhaps require a separate webpage from the current https://secure.vonage.com/account/summary.html. A customer should be able to put an icon on their Windows 10 desktop that will immediately provide a list of all 'recent calls' for the last 12 months. Any and all phone numbers on the list could be selected at one-pass and a single submit-button click.

2. I think 1,000 phone numbers would be a more resonable limit. 50 phone numbers is too small. If the blocked-numbers are put in a hierarchically organized database - 1,000 should be easy to support

I agree with the prior comments that the 50-number limit on blocking is woefully inadequate given the methods the spammers are now using.

My recommendations are:
  1. Remove the limit on the quantity of numbers that can be blocked
  2. Enable more control over blocking. I.e.: "Block all numbers that begin with..." or "Block all numbers that end with" or "Block all numbers that contain..." , etc.
  3. Enable users to mark numbers as spam and proactively prevent those calls from going through based on a database that Vonage keeps. Do it the same way email services do. It's time that Vonage catches up to the times.

Please make the number of blocked numbers unlimited. Swiping on the app no longer works.
