The Selective Call Acceptance feature allows you to block all calls except those from your list of special phone numbers. You can add, delete or change the numbers on your list at any time. Works with local and long distance phone calls to prevent nuisance and solicitation calls. Calls from numbers not on your list are sent to an announcement that you are not receiving calls at this time and are terminated.

To “turn on” Selective Call Acceptance:

  1. Press *64 (On a rotary phone, dial 1164). Listen for an announcement telling you whether the feature is currently on or off. A prerecorded voice will then tell you how many (if any) numbers are currently stored on your acceptance list.

  2. Follow the voice instructions and press 3 to turn the feature ON (if it is currently off) or turn the feature OFF (if it is currently on).

To add a number to your list:

Press # (On a rotary phone, dial 12). Follow the voice instructions. You can store up to 32 phone numbers on your acceptance list.

To remove a number from your list:

Press * (On a rotary phone, dial 11). Follow the voice instructions to remove any of the numbers from your list.

To remove all numbers from your list:

Press *08 (On a rotary phone, dial 1108).

To hear the phone numbers on your list:

Press 1. After the list is read, voice instructions will follow.

To hear instructions again:

Press 0.


  • This feature will not work with calls originating from an area or long distance carrier not providing Caller ID service, toll free numbers, some 700 and 900 numbers, international calls and some cellular calls.

  • You may press 1, 0, #, or * (On a rotary phone, dial 1, 0, 12, or 11) at any time rather than waiting for the voice instructions.

  • The list you create here is separate from any other lists you may be using for Selective Call Forwarding and similar services.
