Full Answer

This type of call blocking is only available with landline telephone service. When a number is blocked, the blocked caller isn't able to call the subscriber again unless the subscriber unblocks the number. Landline phone companies also often offer services such as anonymous call blocking, personalized ring, anonymous call rejection and priority ringing along with the ability to ask unidentified callers to identify themselves.
