How to Block a number on the Extend Home Kit

What phone do you have? Moto G4

What plan are you on?

Does your plan include data, or just talk & text?


Issue Description

Is there a way to block a phone number on the Extend Home that is blocked on the Cell Phone? I have blocked numbers that do not ring on the cell, but still ring thru on the Extend Home desktop phone connection I have created as a separate physical phone using the cell number as intended.

At this time, the simple answer is that there is not. Call blocking on the cell phone is just a local block where the phone essentially ignores the incoming call even though it is still coming to the phone. There is no equivalent on the Extend Home.

thanks for the quick answer on that.

Hi @stevek ,

Do you have spam call blocking enabled in the Republic app?

I will have to look into that, but the reason for inquiry was to deal with private or business numbers I wish to block that are not necessarily identified as spam callers.

@Voyager,

I’ve re-opened this topic as you indicated you had some advice on this subject.

I have an MCHEETA Call Blocker CT-CID801 that I used to use with my landline. After I canceled the landline and switched to Extend Home, I boxed up the call blocker, thinking I would give it away to somebody. I kind of forgot about it. A while back I came across it and decided to connect it to my new system - not really expecting it to work. But it does! I have successfully blocked over 500 callers with it. In my case these were all spam callers, and the big problem is that I still keep getting the same spam only from different numbers. In your case, it might work out great.
