Title: Add caller to X_BlockedCallers list
Post by: GPz1100 on November 30, 2017, 09:04:35 pm
Is there some * code that will automatically add a caller (or last caller) to the X_BlockedCallers list?

Some how a particular number got added to this block list without actually manually entering it.  I looked through the admin guide for such a code but couldn't find anything that matches this behavior.

Thoughts?

Found the issue.

Apparently *86 is defined as block last caller by default in the obi star codes.  It's possible this code got dialed to check voice mail.

This post offers a solution on clearing the block listing using just a star code https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r30641411- .

What's interesting is the obi admin guide makes no mention of the block code but rather cancel repeat dial for *86 .  Talk about a disconnect.  This probably got changed in some firmware update but never documented.  All the more reason why change logs are important!

A different obi, which was recently factory reset (following the 5757 firmware update) also shows block last caller for *86.

I changed *86 to *8686.  Left the *99 in there too, just in case.
