Telenor has also introduced call block service – similar to Ufone’s call block service but I will never use these kind of services when I can block calls and text messages free using my phone’s built in features – or you can install call and SMS blocking software on your handsets.
However let me tell you the feature details of Telenor call block service,
Charges are 20Rs+tax/monthly
For service settings and managing your blocked numbers IVR and SMS methods will be charged as below
SMS: Rs. 2 + tax. (One time)
IVR: Rs. 2 + tax per minute.
Blocking or Unblocking a number by Call Blocker Website = Rs. 2 + tax (one time)
- You can block unlimited numbers including PTCL and Mobile but can block only national numbers international callers blocking is not being provided in this service.
- You can block only calls, cannot block sms with this service.
You can choose from four prompts which your blocked caller will hear whenever they will try to call you (It means you can make them fool : -P), Busy tone, Wrong number prompt, phone switched off prompt, phone no reply prompt.
