did the job
Excellent product silence is golden can not remember the last nuisance call. Would highly recommend to anyone plagued with the dozens of calls we had a week.
Great little device haven't had a single call that I did not want since buying and that is almost three months ago
Found this to be very good and it really works. But I have since sold it on to a friend and bought the other one with the big red button. I knew I would get a better thrill outta pressing that big red button when I got unwanted calls, mind you I don't get too many of them nowadays :-) Good Product and very good service from the seller. I'm happy, now that peace and order has been restored.
Easy to install and use, has 200 numbers already installed of the most common nuisance callers and you can add more. We get very few unsolicited call these days.
Very good product - if we get a nuisance call we just press the button on the device during the call or enter the number and you won't hear from them again. Had no nuisance calls for the past few months but you need to keep vigilant.
Delivered as expected and looks very good. Christmas gift so cannot comment yet on performance, but pleased so far.
An excellent product, easy to use, you just press the button when a nuisance call comes in and the number is blocked permanently.I can easily block whole groups of calls (anonymous, number unavailable, etc) and block specific past callers from my call history as well. Mistakes can be unblocked as well if necessary, so it's an outstanding all round product. No tools or extra parts required, all the connections are included.
Easy to connect; instructions very clear. Using it with the international calls blocked as these have been the main nuisance over the last year, and I've not had any international nuisance calls since it was installed. Bliss.
How can you review if a product like this works. If it works they you will not get any sales calls. We had this one company ringing us up every 3 days they changed phone number so pressed block now and they have not been in touch again. Simplest way to block them is to press block now while they are on the phone then put the phone down. Can also be programmed up to blocklast number etc....So far 3 months without any sales calls.
I have nothing but praise for this product. Excellent value for money. Easy to set up and add numbers to. My mother hasn't received a cold caller for ages.
Have not had to use the Blocker much in anger since it was first set up. By definition I shall never know how many calls it has blocked. However, I rarely receivce a rogue call now so that must indicate that it is working.
Arrived promptly, easy to install, haven't had an unwanted/junk call since (~72 hours) so completely delighted. Will update in due course when I have used more features, but essentially a complete success! Only wish I had bought this sooner.
Why did I wait so long to purchase this, its easy to use and blocks those pesky callers that won't remove me from their lists, highly reccomended
I've had the 106 model for neck end of two years. Easy to set up when the instructions are read first and followed. Does exactly as it's programmed to do. Never faltered.
Probably the best investment I have made for some time! I highly recommend it if , like me, you were beginning to despair of all the unsolicited calls about PPI, solar panels, life surveys and the rest. It comes with 200 pre registered nuisance numbers and you can add numbers yourself by using the call blocker device. My phone hardly ever rings now unless it is family or friends. Absolute bliss! Wish they had something similar for mobiles!
Excellent wee gadget, works a treat. You should get one if you are plagued by these unwanted calls.
happy with the purchase
perfect just what I needed should have bought one before
It does exactly what it says on the advert.
Absolutely brilliant product.
Very pleased with this call blocker. The number of nuisance calls now received have all but ceased. Easy to use and very effective.
We Had this now for 3 weeks and our home phone is not ringing with endless twits trying to sell ppi, etc... Bless the peace....
Buy one if you want to be free of those nuisance callers
Great piece of kit never had anymore cold phone calls since put it in and blocked the ones who were calling best 40 I've spent
great stops nuisance calls great
After a few weeks with two hundred loaded blocked numbers a seven personal button pushes, we now reckeive calls from friends and family.
very good it works well
Great product! Easy to set up and block annoying phone call by push one button. It works very well!
It blocks quite a few nuisance calls and is easy to install and use.
What a bargain, you can set it to block all withheld numbers, international calls and any more you fancy. You can also block individual numbers as they come in, this blocks them in future. Really great ??
Seems to be OK but havnt fully had to test it yet. Good service
Everybody should buy one of these - The time I don't waste answering the phone telling people where to go!
Not had any rubbish phone calls since lnstaling it
Has reduced my nusance calls as I programmed all those I have had in the last 24 months and easily add any new ones in seconds. Great little device. Better than the telephone preference swrvice at stopping repeated nusance calls
So far so good. It has definitely cut down the nuisance calls.
a must have
I bought mine 2 years ago and it seemed to work well but I had a variety of other problems which, at first, seemed related. Eventually it seemed that this was intermittently blocking all incoming calls so I disconnected it and the problem seemed to go away and the supplier immediately replaced it which was brilliant. Without complicating matters too much the problem was eventually resolved to problems with the BT line, problems with TalkTalk a problem with the telephone I was using which also had a call blocking facility, and finally, an intermittent connection on the short lead from the call blocker to the telephone. All now resolved and we have peace. The unit is easy to install and set up apart from the fact that it is light and the trailing leads can cause it to fall of the telephone stand which may have been the cause of the intermittent lead. We also have a new problem in that institutions such as doctors' surgeries and council offices use number unknown systems so these get blocked as well which can have potentially disastrous results in case of emergencies but that is another issue.
My elderly parent was getting a nuisance call a day and after reading the many reviews already written I bought this. It's been installed for 10 days and NO cold calls have got through. Fantastic! The existing arrangement comprised a standard BT broadband/telephone box to which a Broadband wireless router was connected via the RJ11 socket on the box and the internal phones connected from the BT socket on the box via a triple connecter. From this triple connector the connections were: 1 wire to the main phone and 2 extension wires for the 2 extension phones.
Not hardly had any calls since installing it.
A fantastic piece of kit, thoroughly recommended
Arrived quickly and was well packaged. Easy to set up and I have been delighted by the tremendous reduction in unwanted calls. Strongly recommended.
thanks works well no more nuisance caiiers
bought for my parents who say it has dramatically cut down the nuisance calls. easy to install, just plug in and its working
An excellent item. I have had many calls that I not aware of because the CPR 1200 is stopping them. I know because when I do 1471 on my telephone line it comes up with a rogue number. On a cursory check of the internet there are multiple warnings about this number and advised not to call it - not that I had any intention of doing so. So job well done and move on.
Very good indeed
Seems to be doing the job. We were getting numerous sales and scam calls every day, even though we're on Bt's PTS they still get our phone number (albeit with the wrong name sometimes) so someone is clearly selling the information. Enough was enough so we bought this and it's cutting down the number of calls we get a day.
Really does the job--used to have loads of nuisance call ,have been using this for 1 week and calls have stopped
This has made me very happy, blocking calls left, right and centre. Marvellous.
This very neat piece of equipment was simplicity itself to set up and after just over a week in use - NOT ONE nuisance call has been received.
Works really well good product
Brilliant! Took at least 30 seconds to connect and apart from a couple of numbers initially all the cold calls stopped. We have now had it for just over a week and we have had no cold calls for 6 days. I wish I had spotted this device years ago, we have been plagued by cold calls for years and for a very reasonable price they have all been barred, Fantastic!!
Great piece of kit with great customer support
CPR 1200 Number Capacity Nuisance Call Blocker does what it says on there box. It's easy to install, also prompt delivery. Thank you.
does what it says but does not coverall eventualities, unless you are on a dect phone you need one for each phone, i have two sets of dect phones so i need two, didn't realise that when i got it.
The best piece of equipment bought have no trouble with cold calls.
great item great service
very happy with the purchase
I should have bought one of these years ago It has blocked all of the unwanted calls, all quiet now .
Regretting that I hadn't purchased this bit of kit weeks ago. Brilliant, such peace of mind knowing that I've stopped those to**ers from harassing me.
Simply excellent I have had only 1 nuisance call since installing the CPR 1200 some weeks ago now.
It is working very well, peace at last...
was OK but now with new phones not required
Stops all nuisance calls great peace and quiet at last
It does what it supposed to do. A1.
Best forty quid I have ever spent!! How lovely it is to be able to sit down for a meal without being disturbed by the phone. It has successfully blocked all rogue calls. I was reluctant initially to block private/witheld numbers but it was apparent that quite a lot of cold calls actually come from such numbers as when I blocked them, all the nuisance calls stopped. Thoroughly recommended!!
seems to work ok, I haven't had any nuisance calls since fitting it , the only problem appears to be that when I dial a number I just get a buzzing (ringtone) sound so I hang up dial the number again and get the number that I require
brilliant i dont know how i managed before without it 10/10
We have had one of these for around 5 years and wouldn't be without it. Well worth the money!
What a blessing - we feel slightly lonely after having 12 phone calls a day. Don't suffer any more unwanted calls .... Thanks CPS
The call blocker works very well and it's easy to block numbers when theyou ring you. The call blocker guide is very helpful.
One of the best things ever bought!! Had no more "out of area' or unwanted interruptions since installing. Silence is golden! Thankyou CPR worth every penny .
Arrived quickly after ordering with notice it was on its way etc. Easy to plug into the phone line and it has dealt with one harassing individual foreign caller deemed dangerous. Can relax, nice to stop them effectively once and for all. Would recommend it. Peace at home priceless.
After many months of nuisance calls at all hours of the day I found this device, now there is silence !! blissful silence, well worth the money and easy to set up.
I have had two of these in my telephone system for a couple of years. They do exactly what the makers claim. If a call does come through which you recognise as a nuisance, immediately hit the button on the top. You will not hear it again!. Also if you are being harassed by a certain individual, you can program that number into the memory and it will be blocked. All instructions are available.
This is the second Call Blocker I have purchased from CPR and it works like a dream. In fact, it is worth its weight in gold! We have gone from getting several nuisance calls a day to less than one or two a month - and they are easily dealt with by hitting the Block Now button. I like that there are no ongoing subscriptions to pay and that the unit has a huge capacity totalling 3,500 numbers (including the ones pre-programmed into the device). Set up was easy and technical support very helpful when I had an initial enquiry about where to add a line splitter. My device works fine with broadband, an answerphone and a telecommunicating alarm system. I would highly recommend buying one.
I brought this for my brother who is blind. Nuisance calls had meant he'd stopped answering the phone, the Call Blocker gives him the confidence to answer the phone again. I got the product that has the big red button so it's easy for my brother to use.
Since fitting the Call Blocker six days ago I've had just one rubbish call which I blocked effortlessly straight away. Over the last two or three weeks I was getting up to ten calls per day sometimes at ten o'clock at night. Thank you CPR. Your Call Blocker is wonderful value for money.
I fitted the Call Blocker ten days ago and have had just 1 call which was offering a claim on Accident Insurance which I blocked at the push of a button. Before I bought it we were having at least six a day.I wish I had Bought one sooner.An excellent buy,thank you CPR excellent value for money.
Well worth having one of these. Fewer nuisance calls. Bought reconditioned one and happy with it.
Easy to install and worked immediately. Nuisance calls eliminated.
Bought for my elderly mother in law and has stopped 99% of nuisance calls, well worth it!!
My initial thoughts were that it didn't work at all so make sure you have the cables in the right way around! Thought it has some numbers preprogrammed I added the numbers of regular cold callers that I knew about (new boiler seems to have replaced the ppi calls). After 30 minutes the first call was blocked. Also added 0845 prefix to the list too. If you do get a call then the block button is an easy to use way to add that number. Obviously there should be ways to get our names off lists (having the registered the number doesn't appear to work). Whilst answering a call and cutting them off doesn't take much effort but using this does help to make sure you don't get unnecessary interruptions.
Fantastic M/C. keeps all the persistent cold callers at bay
Bought for a friend who was having trouble with a persistent caller. Seems to have done the trick
It appears to work as advertised, calls are becoming much less frequent.
Had this two years brill it works
Got this for my elderly in laws. It is very easy to set up, just a matter of plugging it in really. You can programme it all kinds of ways, but it seems to do a great job without all that. We had a bit of an issue with the first one but CPR Global were wonderful and sorted it right away. Thanks CPR!
Easy to use and effective
Did a test using my mobile number, the Call blocker works, and its easy to set up!
Invaluable, it has made having a home telephone tolerable. Telemarketers just do NOT learn to leave people alone.
I can honestly say that this is the best thing I have ever brought from Amazon, we were getting 5 to 6 calls a day from 00 - 000 - 02 Indian call centers, since plugging this call blocker in and spending about 5 minutes setting it up, we have not received a single call from them, It's been like heaven.
I bought ours direct from CPL. its version V108. We should have got one of these years ago because after programming in some codes we now get virtually no spam calls! its as if our phone has gone back in time to that happy place where you only get calls from people you want to hear from, wonderful!
Great product over 2 weeks since the last nuisance call
Vast reduction in nuisance calls already.
it does what it says un the box
5.0 out of 5 stars... for 97 year old relative so had to be easy to use
Just set this piece of kit up in France, easy and straightforward, and it works well. The instructions(with clear illustrations) cover use and setting up abroad, and the extra cable needed is included in the package. I can now enjoy a glass of wine and my dinner in peace.
Happy with purchase
Instant reduction in cold & nuisance calls - I highly recommend this to ANYONE SUFFERING THE COLD CALLS ETC.
Haven't had a nuisance call since it was installed would like to think the machine stopped them and not just a coincidence !!
Having installed one of these last week and set it up using the extra codes for 'Unavailable/Overseas' calls, I have had not a single nuisance call for a whole week.
This device really does work - I can feel my blood pressure getting lower by the day...
I purchased a refurbished CPR call blocker which worked magnificently. A minor "plastic" problem occurred and CPR sent me another unit which looks like a brand new one. Great product and a good company to deal with. I can now enjoy my afternoon siesta's again without nerd nuisance callers waking me up....Oh happy days.
Great. Finally getting rid of nuisance calls
didn't work it out at first, but it is simple to use, nice little object, unobtrusive, works a treat, nice price too
This is brilliant. So easy to set up and use.
Brilliant, peace at last
very happy with thisblocker.i also got a very helpful email from the seller explaining how to set it up as I was not sure how to do it.
what a God send this little gizmo is brilliant our nuisance calls have gone from between 100 or more a week to absolutely one now and again and then all you have to do is PRESS a BUTTON and you get PEACE it's terrific
Superb. I have cut my unwelcome calls down to nothing.
Absolutely brilliant. I mean it! Pestered to death by persistent cold callers. The box has completely got rid of them all. Highly recommended
As described arrived quickly works very well
Really pleased with call blocker, peace at last
I bought a refurbished CPR and it proved very easy to set up straight out of the box. The volume of nuisance calls dropped off from day one. Still to test the Unavailable and Witheld
It maybe small but it does the job.
Bliss ... my gripe is with OFCOM, we shouldn't have to buy these things.
seems to work fine.
1 minute to set-up, just cable the CPR between the master phone socket and the base unit (or phone). We had been receiving 4-5 unsolicited calls every day. You will notice the change immediately. Presumably the designated numbers pre-programmed into the unit stop the majority of calls straight away. In the 2 weeks we have had the CPR we have received 4 unsolicited calls and just pressed #2 after answering them. No calls in the last 3 days. Have not had to use the extra functions to stop area code calls etc., although they are available if needed. Can fully recommend this product.
arrived quickly and safely
At last, peace from all those annoying phone calls, and so easy to use.
Plug in block calls
Really impressive. Has reduced our nuisance calls by 99%. As OAPs we were subjected to numerous of these calls
This product has resolved our nuisance call problem which was getting unbearable. Worth every penny.
So simple to use: one press of the button, or a handset 2-digit code, and no more calls from that number.
We still get a few cold calls but can press the block button so they cannot phone again. GREAT.
Hi this little grey box is grate ,its easy to set up and then it sits there and stops all those annoying calls .
stops 99% of nuisance calls and if one slips the net, just push the button great little device.
The decrease in nuisance calls has been amazing. Very happy with product.
The number of nuisance calls has certainly dereased.
Best thing I have brought in years, works straight out the box blocking nuisance calls. It is so good I brought a second one for my brother. The customer support is second to none. would recommend to anyone 5 stars all the way
If you get nuisance calls this is brilliant it's so easy to use I just wished I bought it a long time ago. Good value for money. Don't think twice buy it so many less stressful days thank you for inventing this.
This is a useful device. Have already blocked several call. Only regret is that I now wish I had purchased the call blocker with a screen.
It has been very good in stopping unwanted calls. The instructions were clear and having alternative blocking numbers worked well. It has been nice to have only useful calls getting through.
What a fantastic machine - honestly!
Worth it's weight in "Gold"
great little tool, i was getting six nuisance calls a day, it took a few days to block incoming calls but now I only get the odd one a month, then I press the call delete button,and they stop. I am so pleased with the blocker, It is the best investment we have made for some time.My wife and I are both pensioners and the calls were driving us mad, but now we can sit and relax in peace,
In the early days we still had a few calls getting through but I just followed the instructions and these few were blocked. I must admit I was a little sceptical in the beginning but am now delighted. My only criticism is the very small print in the instruction booklet. Being of senior years I needed a magnifying glass at times. Bearing in mind that this item is of interest to many with less than 20-20 vision clearer instructions would be a plus.
Great piece of kit easy to install and operate, as long as you remember,
no more nuisance calls no more running to answer rubbish good buy
great no fuss and a deep satisfaction that your getting one over on the scammers . I love it
This certainly does what it says on the box!, really good .
This device has proved a godsend. Since installing it I have had precisely two unwanted calls (I was getting several every day before) and those two callers were blocked by me using the device and I've had no more calls from them. Highly recommended
This is a very efficient call blocker. I am delighted with it . And this has cut nuisance calls by at least 95%. Thank you
Call blocker works well . it's quite nice when someone calls and you just press a button and that's the end of them
Within days of installing the call blocker my nuisance calls went down from about ten per day to one or two per day and is still going down. The calls still come possibly every two or three days but it is so easy to use; you just press the button on the machine and it stores it in the memory to stop it in the future.
This product is the answer to my prayers. 100% accurate. So easy to use. Hardly get any nuisance calls now. If I do I just press the button and bye bye!!!! Would recommend it.
I am very impressed with the call blocker, we can now have some peace
Great gadget !
The number of nuisance calls reduced dramatically when first installed due to the in built numbers already blocked. The calls that I do not want to receive are also easy to block.
works very well indeed but still constant calls for national database products and some which ring off when answered
Does the job most of the times
A brill bit of kit it does what it says on the box .
No of calls seems to be reduced but we are getting up to 3 a day with caller no witheld usually asian speakers what can we do about these?
This device was so simple to install - 2 minutes! Instructions were extremely clear and simple, clearly illustrated and delivered in non-techy language. Since installing the device nuisance calls have been reduced from 5/6 per day to 2/3 per week.
This is the best bit of kit I have bought in ages. We used to get 4 or 5 scam calls per day and they have stopped altogether. I have only had one which I blocked using Hash 2. brilliant thanks for giving my phone back
It is the best 40.00 that I have ever spent! I now only get about 1 or 2 calls a week instead of the 6 a day that I was getting.
I seemed to spend a lot of time going to answer calls from 00 telephone numbers which were always Asian call centres trying to sell something or claiming my computer had a problem. The Nuisance Call Blocker has stopped them completely. It was very easy to set up and it is very easy to block calls from other callers with UK numbers by simply pressing a button during the call. It has significantly improved my quality of life because I am not now constantly rushing to answer nuisance calls.
Excellent, makes life a lot easier, blocks 8 - 10 calls nearly every day.
Works perfectly. Can't remember the last time I had a nuisance call.
I am so pleased I brought this, I was having about 10 nuisance calls every day and twice I was tricked into opening up my computer and was nearly scammed . Since buying this product I have not had 1 unwanted phone calls.
It is easier to block calls hitting the button on the device than by entering a code from a remote handset but my nuisance calls have fallen a lot. The only ones I have failed to block are text messages to my landline which still come through even after entering what I am told is the correct code. All in all a great investment.
Very pleased with this machine. Any calls that I receive and don't recognise the number I just press the "block now" button. I then don't get then pestering me again.
95% effective. I get about one spam call a month and press the button.
easy to install works good
Eventually getting all those nuisance callers blocked
Absolutely brilliant, no more unwanted calls, and I used to get a lot! Simple to install and set up. Also, combine this with registering on www.tpsonline.org.uk and register your number, (you can also register mobile numbers) it makes it illegal for telemarketers to call you after 28 days of registering.
Works like a charm...no more calls during the night and can easily add numbers to the ever expanding list of blocked ones.
Works most of the time but although I have stopped international calls I sometimes still receive them.
excellent, peace at last!
this product work as it help me to block some unwanted callers
Works as advertised. No complaints. Told my brothers about it and they both bought one. Everybody's satisfied.
I love this....not one crap call since installing would highly recommend to everyone who is sick of robo calls and harrassing scammers!!!!!!!
Bought 2 of these, they work great! No more unwanted telemarketing calls!
The jury is still out. I've only had it less than two weeks. It seems to work on some numbers but not all, at least not right away. I emailed customer service and they sort of indicated that you have to code some numbers in more than once. I'm definitely getting fewer trash calls, but I write down every number that calls, and one I've already coded in 3 times. Customer Service says to push the button on top of the device, but I'm not always around to push the button when they call. And I want to look at my list of trash calls and/or google the number before I block it to be sure I don't block a call that I want to receive.
I am entirely satisfied with this product.
I had a conference call and it was on for over an hour ..I had not put the blocker on because I NEEDED to read the directions better. So when I do get it on the phone I will be back to add to this review.
Being a night-shift worker, I was constantly being waken up by telemarketers. This little black box seems to be doing the trick. A lot more restful sleeping now.
All unwanted calls stopped the first day!!! Amazing product!
Have had this unit working for several days and my nuisance calls have virtually dropped to zero. When they do get through it is a simple task to include the number as blocked so I never receive a second call. Absolutely delighted with my purchase. It was an easy install; it simply works. I have Panasonic Dect phones which work wonderfully with this device.
Works exactly as expected and now the phones aren`t ringing. Really small and excellent product.. Buy without qualms.
It blocks almost all calls I want to block. However, it does not block "Unknown Name", even though the document says it does. Funny thing is now that I can block all other generic scam calls, I am getting lately lot more from "Unknown Name" callers than ever before..
I was receiving 5 plus calls a day, as soon as I plugged this in it STOPPED. I have only had two calls that I have had to bloke myself, wish I had bought this ages ago.
Peace at last
Great piece of kit.
Been using this for a month now and I'm totally happy with it. It's a doddle to install and within the first week I noticed an 80% reduction in nuisance calls *without* pressing the block button (or # then 2 on a cordless phone), and over the next couple of weeks I noticed closer to 95% reduction as I blocked numbers and blanket-blocked certain types of numbers that seemed to always be irritating.
I was getting dozens of nuisance calls until I purchased this, now the peace is bliss ! If I do get a odd nuisance call I just press block and they can't call back. I would definitely recommend it x
I've only just installed the unit. Took literally seconds. So far not one cold caller has contacted us, is it some spooky power that this machine has? Once I've had it in use for a while I will make a review. It's small and compact and sits nicely by the phone. Saw them advertised in B&Q but for a tenner more than on here. Hopefully it will end the misery of these call centres. I've noticed lately than many are using local area codes to contact people, knowing that they will pick up. This machine should see the end of that game.
At this point in time it seems to be blocking nuisance calls
phones a lot quieter now
Too soon to give an honest review - only received two days ago. However already blocked one international call.
We think it's working!
excellent product, half the price it was a week ago, I think because the Chinese have put lots of competition on the market. Great customer service.
works well, thanks
Oh, it is so nice to be in control of my own phone again and for ME to determine who rings!
Yes it does what it claims to do simple to install
Good delivery everything seems to be working ok thank you
In the month that this device has been installed, our nuisance calls total has fallen from 7 to 8 a day to almost zero. It's easy to install and use and, so far, has performed very well.
Good product. Would recommend. Stopped 90% of our nuisance calls but isn't currently stopping international or unavailable numbers. Prompt delivery and well packaged
Very quick delivery. Easy to set up. Only just installed so not sure of effectiveness yet. No nuisance calls yet
This simple to use, unobtrusive, little box saved my sanity. Really. Now when "Neville" from Mumbai calls me, I don't have to answer because I don't know he rang - brilliant!
Does the job so far
Find this call blocker very good from receiving 5_6 calls a day now get only 2_3 a week
It works really well. I now have peace at last. Very easy to set up. Very easy to use on an ongoing basis. Will recommend to anyone I encounter that is complaining about all their nuisance calls. Great little product. Thoroughly recommend it.
This quite simply the best 40 I have ever spent. Set for no withheld numbers, no 08000 numbers and now trained to avoid nearly everyone I don't want to speak to my house is once again a haven of peace. This is a wonderfully simple and effective tiny box. Also the customer service via email is very good if you plug it in the wrong way round like I did. I love things that do exactly what they are meant to.
I finally gave in and bought one of these after the number of spam calls (new boiler, PPI, accident claims, PC support, etc) got too annoying to cope with. Despite being registered with TPS I was receiving 5 calls a day sometimes. Since connecting this device about a week ago, I've had two calls in total. They are now in the block list and my sanity is returning.
Since fitting it, it has been a god send, now have hardly any nuance calls, so peaceful!!, instead of the 12 a day we use to get
Good product, blocks the calls.
CPR Nuisance Call Blocker...bought this about a month ago had one caller trying to sell something easily blocked with one button no nuisance calls
Easy to set up,only 2 wires to swap over.you will need to have caller I.D set up before you connect up.I get a great deal of pleasure from pressing the red button on the unit.You can also app calls on any cordless extension handsets around the house by pressing hash2.Well worth the money
This item is so simple to use. Attach (easily) into the phone and then when you get a PPI or International selling scam call etc you just press the button and that number will never call you again. It has 200 suspect numbers programmed in and you can add 800 more which even at the rate I get them will take a heck of a long time!. Well done whoever invented this
Does what it says on the box
so good that I had to ring my landline to make sure it was working!
Seems ok - no probs so far! Good value for money
Does the job well and, over time, should cure the problem of unwanted calls.
Just the job
This is the second call blocker we have had (the latter being an updated version). Very pleased with the results. Get very few unwanted calls. Only one drawback which we found first time round....if you block withheld numbers people such as hospitals can't get through. Needless to say we didn't do this with the second one so no problem. Would certainly recommend.
Since instaling our Nuisance calls have 99% been stopped
CPR Global do exactly what they say they will do. I have been with them for several years now and have found their customer service 2nd to none.
so far so good, has reduced my unwanted calls.
Works wonders, I get minimal cold calls since I installed the call blocker.
It seems to have blocked the overseas calls that I believe were responsible for irritating and malicious calls otherwise called spam.
Very useful device has stopped me being pestered by up to 15 cold calls in a day.
Had this call blocker a few weeks now and has stopped almost all unwanted calls.
Works as intended. Gave me so much more time during the day to work instead of answering the crazy amount of pointless sales calls I was getting.
It has been very successful in so far that we have had no un wanted calls at all.
At last no more nuisance calls. Does exactly what it says, would recommend this item.
I am very satisfied with my call blocker, very few calls now which is great.
Brilliant, went from getting 3 or 4 calls each hour every day to around 3 a week. Great feeling to press the button and disconnect/block them.
touch wood since using this device all the nuisance calls have stopped since using this
Gosh it's very quiet round here now, had this product a while now and it works great, annoying sod phones, hit the f off button as I call it and you never hear from annoying sod again , it got to the point that my wife thought the house phone was broken and texted me at work to call her at home to check it still works, when I first got it home and set it up the difference was instant, it's comes with a lot of nuisance numbers already blocked, bliss, if you're plagued with numpties calling you invest in this bit of clever kit, you won't regret it
its working well so far
SUPERB item every home should have one. PEACE and QUIET at last:)
After purchasing this call blocker I have peace of mind for the first time in about 2 years. I am rather technophobic, but it is so simple to attach to the phone. I cannot thank you enough for this. It is one of the best things I have bought for years. I can now stop these awful calls and it feels brilliant
Worth every penny !!
It's ok still getting unwanted calls
Absolutely worth every penny
This piece of apparatus appears to be doing a good job at blocking nuisance calls.
Certainly reduced the number of nuisance calls
We decided to buy one of these call blockers after putting up with nuisance calls for way too long, they were really invading our home life! After just 2 days of setting up the CPR we realised we had gone from our normal 5-6 unwanted calls per day to none...wonderful, the sound of silence ?? We do occasionally get another new one pop up but that's easily resolved with a quick #2 on the phone. I would highly recommend the CPR call blocker to anyone sick of being on the receiving end of such calls.
Peace at last. This is brilliant. Easy to use. Works a treat. What more could you ask for?
This little machine has made a huge difference to us! We were getting about 15-20 nuisance calls per day and overnight.....nothing. Extremely easy to set up and it makes an instant difference and so easy to block numbers which haven't already been stored. Would definitely recommend this product.
Highly recommend.Every home should have one.Stopped most of the unwanted intrusive calls.
lmost as good as the V5000 version
excellent, end of calls interrupting out day
This is one of the best purchases ever. After getting 7 calls in one hour bought the call blocker and are absolutely delighted. Stopped all withheld numbers as soon as I put in the code. The weekend had NO unwanted calls. Excellent.
Absolutely delighted very few calls have got through and once I have removed them it is over for them good product will happily recommend thankyou
Arrived when expected and up to now I think is working . Still get some calls and block so hopefully will stop all eventually .
IT DOSE THE JOB WELL NO MORE NUISANCE CALLS
Very easy to use. Makes me feel less vulnerable to nuisance calls knowing I can block them at the touch of a button. Very pleasant lady on the phone in the first instance, talked me through everything so I understood it all.
Seems to have made a great difference.
A very useful piece of equipment.
I don't know wether I set the product up incorrectly but I found initially that I could not phone my stored local numbers. I then changed the plugs around as suggested and I find that I am getting very few nuisance calls at all. I don't know if this is correct but I'm happy.
It seems to have solved the problem; the previous constant stream of unwanted callers ( several per day) are no longer get through.
fantastic product it does exactly as it says on the tin not had many cold calls since fitting the blocker peace at last would recommend this product to anyone who hates the so called ( bleep) cold callers that's had them stopped
Works a treat.
Brilliant. It does what it says on the tin!!!!!!!
Very good item
Has stopped all those annoying cold callers! A must for today's nuisance callers!!!!
Works very well, We were getting 6-8 calls a day, I was going mad! Now just the odd one
outstanding the phone as never been so quiet and so simple to install .thank you
I bought this for my elderly mother who was getting scam calls on a regular basis (probably cause she is elderly). It has made a huge difference is the amount of calls coming it and it is easy for her to add calls to the block list. We are very pleased with the CPR CallBlocker. Just following up - I bout another for my mom's friend
This is one of the products thats really hard to review,I have used this for a very short time,haven't had a blocked call get through yet,I will upgrade to five stars if this stays true,You can't prove a negative. So far (fingers crossed) this will continue--upgrade later For the manufacturer (political season is already here) can I daisy chain these units(1200 might not be enough)
My annoying telemarketing calls have stopped. I love this product! I have Time Warner Cable as land line.
I like it
This is the best thing to come down the pike since sliced bread. Our calls have dropped by at least 85% and my husband loves it when he hears that one short ring and knows that we "got another one" as he says. It is lovely to be able to cut these obnoxious sales people and scam artists off in mid sentence with a mere push of the button and never hear from them again. I would give it 10 stars if I could! Worth every dime.
So far, I have had many positive results with this product. Sometimes I can't get to it in time when the phone rings. But maybe the next time I can. Anyway, the peace and quiet and not having to run to the phone all the time, because of these nuisance calls, makes it much more pleasant for me.
Performs as advertised,.......super simple to use.....I love it! Great price for a great product. Comes with all necessary adaptors & cables which was a surprise.
Works perfectly. The number of unwanted calls has dropped significantly.
So far so good, just installed Call Blocker V108. I will update this post as I learn more.
This has cut down on our incoming spam calls like you cannot believe. What I like most is the phone won't even ring unlike the ones that cost 2x as much. I would recommend this one if you have issues with your phone constantly ringing off the hook.
It is approximately 90% effective. Still some numbers that get through but overall am very pleased with it.
I purchase many products on Amazon and do my research carefully. I do believe you get what you pay for. I was slightly skeptical on this call blocker as it was only $39.99. The reviews were mostly positive. There was a newer model with a caller ID screen but I chose this one without the extra screen as all my cordless phones had the ID screen on them . I have been getting hundreds of calls from 4 different 800 #'s and was becoming a very angry man. I had this installed and running in less than 2 minutes and within 15 minutes had already blocked 2 of the #'s . I still get the calls but it only rings once and the CPR CALL BLOCKER blocks it at that point. NO MORE PHONE RINGING UNTIL VOICE MAIL PICKS UP. ONE RING AND THEY ARE DONE. I love the one button blocking and the fact it comes pre programed with about 200 known telemarketer #'s. I would reccomend this to anyone wanting to eliminate those pesky calls.
It works great with my Magic Jack!
Only have had blocker a few days and it is working fine....blocking unwanted calls is fun!:-)
If you just want details, read the easy to understand manual. Bottom line, it is very effective at blocking unwanted calls and you can have more quiet and less disruption in your life. If there were just a practical way to know beforehand, rather than after the fact, the unwanted phone numbers and area codes, you could actually realize total peace.
All I can say is what a pleasure to stop the constant ringing! The CPR is well made, the price was reasonable, easy to connect and very simple to operate. So far, the unwanted national and international calls are stopped with a tap of a single button. Product elivery was also very good, Many thanks.
2 weeks activated...So far seems to be working... Block Now is a charm..I was so frustrated for over 1 year,folks calling a previous home based person.. Bill collectors, cold calls you name it I got them.. My provider gave tons of excuses.. I needed CPR Call Blocker V108 - 1200 Number Capacity -... CPR Call Blocker like 365 days agp
This is one of the best products I have ever bought. Works just like it said it would. My wife and I finally have peace from all kind of aggravating telephone calls. Get it it is great.
Was not sure about this because of the low price, but wow it works!
It works with Ooma. I have a VoIP solution (Ooma) which is connected to the base station for a DECT 6.0 cordless phone system by Uniden. I didn't do anything fancy. I just have my the telephone cable from the wall -> Ooma -> CPR Call Blocker -> DECT 6.0 home base for my home phones. I read that there are two problems: that Caller ID doesn't work with Uniden systems, and a special setup would be needed for Ooma. However, this hasn't been my experience. Everything works as it should. Caller ID still shows up on my Uniden, and if I hit the "block" button on the CPR device, it immediately cuts off the phone call and any future calls won't ring my phones. I suppose that my Ooma system is still receiving the calls, but because the CPR Call Blocker sits between my actual handsets and the Ooma, the phones never ring since the CPR Call Blocker works like a firewall. I didn't want to pay the asking price ($40) because the CPR Call Blocker wasn't made to work with US systems. I was very hesitant. But in the end, I'm glad I made the purchase. Instead of receiving 3 unwanted spam calls a night, I am now down to about one or two a week, and those are now getting blacklisted thanks to the CPR Call Blocker.
Works as advertised. Only drawback, user cannot tell what numbers are listed inside the device.
This little black box has sure made our live less stressful. No more annoying calls!!
It does indeed work! I've gone from a dozen nuisance calls/day to zero in less than a week. There was a 90% drop the first day. The only thing I do not like is that you cannot see the DNC numbers that have been added to the call blocker. Aside from that, I'm enjoying peace and solitude of my home again.
My phone system only blocked 20 numbers. This one will block 1200 and I hope that will be enough to stop all robocalls.
Did not want to work when I first received it. Had to reset it to the factory settings and all worked after that.
Finally -- no more nuisance calls!!! Compatible with DECT wireless phone system that has 20 number caller ID blocking. And, customer service is second to none. If you receive a lot of unwanted calls, you will not regret purchasing this unit.
This is a stellar product and an answer to our prayers. My wife and I have never been particularly fond of telephones in general and regard them as a necessary evil for the most part. We probably tend to regard random intrusions upon our privacy via the telephone more seriously than the average person and have been increasingly frustrated and angered by robocalls that have increased to 4 to 5 per day, despite being on the do-not-call registry. When this device was delivered three days ago, I programmed approximately 30 numbers into it from our calls log, and we haven't had a single rogue call since. I became concerned that it was too good to be true and was possibly blocking ALL calls, so I requested that our daughter call us to see if her call came through. It did. A burden has been lifted and we feel really satisfied that we now have an effective weapon against unrelenting and unwarranted harassment from strangers. I regard this as my best purchase of the year.
Works like a champ!
Only had it a week but the numbers I've blocked haven't called back
Great product at a good price.
What a great device! Since I installed this call blocker I'm finally experiencing some peace and quiet. It sets up easily. I had mine up and running in a couple of minutes. I only wish I had bought one a couple of years ago and saved myself a lot of aggravation!
I absolutely love this call blocker. My phone has the capability to block phone numbers but unfortunately it can only hold 25. Adding this device to my phone line has been a blessing! My phone went from ringing incessantly from telemarketers and other scammers, to only ringing from valid callers. Every time my phone rings once and then stops, I immediately smile and say, "Best invention ever!" I can not tell you how happy this call blocker has made me. If you try it I'm sure you'll appreciate the peace of mind it brings.
Very easy to install with instructions. Am using with my Ooma Telo as I cancelled my premier service so lost my ability to block calls. This is actually easier than Ooma anyway since all I do when I get the unwanted call is pick up and hit #2. Done. It sits behind my phone and I forget it is there silently doing it's thing. While more expensive ones have LCD screens and the like so far I like this little box.
I've had my Call Blocker for a few months now and it has saved me a world of anger. It was easy to set up and is easy to use. Most important of all, of course, is that it works. After having blocked about 45 numbers over the last few months, unwanted calls have dwindled to about one per week, easily ignored via caller id. The problem with robo calls and such is that they are all from criminals. Even if the call itself is not much of an interruption, I used to get so mad aabout these criminal types trying to scam me. Now I'm never upset. The calls just don't reach me. So, HIGHLY recommended. It's the best $80 I ever spent.
Works great!! Telemarketing calls have dramatically dropped. Very easy to install as well.
Simple to use, no batteries, 99.9% of the dirt bag calls immediately stopped and the few that make it through are easily entered into the device!!! The toll free support number greats you with excellent and friendly support!!!
Great little device. We cannot believe how quiet the house is without all the robo calls. Most of them are automatically blocked by Call Blocker. We have only had one or two get through, and all we have to do is press a button to stop them from calling again. Amazingly easy and effective. Best money we have spent in awhile.
Work very well
Received the unit 5 days ago. Had been receiving at least two unwanted calls a day. After installing the unit with the two hundred preinstalled numbers, it took 3 days to test the unit, since no other scammers got through. Another two days later, we received one more. Well worth the money. Would recommend to everyone.
I have only had about 1 phone call a day and I have blocked them. I bought two accidentally but am giving one to my son and I know they will realloy enjoy having it. I think everyone should have a call blocker. They are great
Seems to work well. The number of calls has been reduced dramatically.
Super Awesome!!!! From minute I plugged it in, it's given me beautiful silence in the house.
Works great, nuisance calls have dropped off significantly since I installed this. Very easy to set up and use.
What a great way to block all the companies that don't adhere to the Do Not Call list! Simple to set up and works well.
This device is easy to set up, and does not take up much room. The price is reasonable, especially since you can block up to 1200 numbers, which means it is probablye that you won't have to ever buy a blocking device again, until the scammers figure a way around it. You can either set it up to block entire area codes, certain types of calls, or when a call gets through you can block it then and there. It's nice to feel that over time, I'll once again anticipate when the phone rings, expecting to hear from a friend or family member, instead of feeling annoyed because it's yet another robocaller when I'm just sitting down to eat.
Great little machine! In ten days, only four nuisance calls have come through. They are now permanently blocked. Read and follow the directions, and it works great.
I have been harassed with all kinds of unwanted calls for years and finally purchased the V108 call blocker for USA. Its been 2 days and not one unwanted call. If and when one comes, one touch and it is gone. Thanks Call Blocker! Forget the do not call list which doesn't work at all!
This has done an excellent job.
I bought this call blocker for my older brother, because he was getting a lot of telemarketers calling him. Also, he had some scammers calling all during the day. The CPR Call Blocker is doing a very good job of blocking all of these types of calls. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a call blocking unit.
I had enough of these 800 and other pesty callers and bought this CPR Blocker. From day one it has zapped these unwanted numbers without the phone ringing; after I had manually put these in the memory. If you happen to be next to the phone, look at the ID. number and push the button....the number is in the memory. Wish I would have had this along time ago. Read directions carefully though. Bp
Giving this a five star rating because it does block unwanted calls. While it is simple to install, it does let my other phone ring while call blocker screens on my main phone. I understand this is due to technical issues that all blockers seem to have with multiple handset phone systems. Bottom line...it blocks the unwanted call, can block full area codes, unknown numbers, zero numbers, unavailable numbers and even my own number which has been spoofed.
Works Great!!! I found the Youtube for this product and fortunately my printer is able to enlarge the instructions to a full page size. I have started setting this call blocker up with some 40 known phone numbers to block immediately. All is very quiet now with phone calls.
Works just like they say it will. NO MORE ROBO CALLS! YAY!!!
The call blocker works as described. We are still manually blocking the 'unknown', etc. but our number of calls are drastically reduced.
This Call Blocker had clear, specific instructions with it, so that it was easy to set up. I've had a huge number of callers that are often repetitive that either hang up as soon as I answer or are offers for things that I would never purchase upon such a call, or are in regards to something that is totally not me or anything to do with me that I have dealt with the last time I ever intend to again - but they call using other phone numbers. When I set up the Call Blocker, I programmed in the last 10 phone numbers that have thus annoyed me. While this is only day 2 since I set the blocker up, this morning's call, while visible on the caller ID, it never caused the phone to ring! I was delighted!
Great product. It works exactly as advertised. I blocked all international, anonymous, unavailable, and "0" type callers when I first got the blocker a month ago. Since then I've had 6 nuisance calls and have been able to successfully blocked them with the #2 feature from my Panasonic cordless phone extension. The peace and quiet is well worth the money
This device is great.... I have had this for about 6 weeks now and is works as advertised. We were getting 3 to 4 telemarketing, political and charity calls a day. One by one as they called, I blocked their number. We are now down to maybe a call once or twice a week now. On one occasion I was away from the device, so I asked the caller to hold for a minute so I could go in my den and block their number. They actually held on until I pushed the button. I thanked them for waiting and hung up. Since then, just for fun, I ask each caller to hold for a minute so I can block their number. Oddly, they all stay on the line until I am able to press the button.
Didn't work well with our cordless phone base, but once connected to a traditional phone all is well. Seems to be working fine!
Things are so much quieter now!
So far the call blocker has been great. I seem to be on a call list for ALL the scams in the country! I enjoy pushing the little button and never getting a call from that number again.
I guess it's working because robocalls have dropped from 8-10 daily to only 1or 2 and those are new marketers. Installation was easy and took less than 2 minutes. I am VERY satisfied
Haven't received a call from a telemarketer since I installed it, just love it!!
have owned CPR call blocker for more than a year. it's fabulous! Easy to install and even easier to use. No more annoying calls!!!!!
I have a telephone with 30 call, call blocking capability. Within 10 days the 30 numbers - all different - filled up the blocked calls space. I had ordered another call blocking device from Amazon, and found it to be a bit too complicated for what I needed. It was more for more than one line, and at home I have only one line. I was skeptical of ordering another one, but the calls just got more and more frequent, and on some days would start at 5:00 AM and last until midnight. Since my provider of phone service isn't willing to help, I decided after reading reviews on the CPR, to try once more and I ordered it. I've only had it on my phone for 1 1/2 days now, and it has blocked over 9 calls. With my TV service, the incoming calls show on my TV screen, and they all did show up but not a sound from my phone. It was incredibly easy to connect, the size is very small and doesn't take up very much space. I am happy with it so far. 1 1/2 days is not a very long time, but I have high hopes it will continue to stop these annoying and unwanted callers. I have a quiet household once again, and am SO thankful for that!
ALL NUISANCE CALLS ARE A THING OF THE PAST. BEST INVESTMENT I MADE ALL YEAR. MY CALLER ID SHOWS NUMBER CALLING AND IF ITS NOT A FAMILIAR NUMBER, JUST BLOCK IT AND THE CALL BLOCKER WILL BLOCK IT EVERY TIME THEY TRY TO CALL BACK. LOVE IT.
This is the perfect way to stop those junk calls. It made an impact within a few days! And for the few that do make it through, I have considerable satisfaction when I hit the button to block. Woohoo! No more "Hello. This is Bridget with card holder services calling in reference to your current card account." I can finally focus on the calls that matter, my clients.
It seems to work well! But sometimes when an unwanted call comes in and you push the push the call blocker button the call does not get blocked?
Plugged it in three nights ago. Has already blocked every nuisance call trying to ring in (about 5). This device is tiny -- about the size of a pack of cigarettes and weighs just a couple ounces. All the programming is done via your existing phone. Here's a tip: instead of blocking by individual numbers, look at the AREA CODES of your nuisance calls. Many will be the same. Mine were area codes starting with 8, like 850, 815, 805. I'm sure starting in election season, there will be zillions of calls from the D.C. area code. You can easily find their location by doing a Google search. If you know nobody in that location, BLOCK THE AREA CODE according to the instructions. I'm sure if you win the Publishers Clearinghouse jack-pot, they will find you!
Very easy to hook up (seconds) and already has eliminated nearly all robo calls. Only have had to add one robo number and was easy with the push of the button on top. So much quieter in the house without all the unwanted calls. Will be interesting with the upcoming election season as to whether or not this little unit will block all the political calls? I'm placing my bet it will.
fast delivery. Love this thing. In the five days that I have had it, I have only had two unwanted calls. I pushed the "2" button and the call instantly terminated and I assume went on my black list. I have OOMA VOIP and caller ID and everything works perfectly.
Perfect device for those annoying solicitor phone calls or even unwanted calls from others. Easy to use. I doing any adding of phone numbers mainly from the phone as the unit is in the other room and not easy to get to when the phone rings. I ignore the call and then add it later using the phone keys. Easy and convenient. Only con is it doesn't block a call when you are on the phone. Even though the caller ID shows the number, it will ring through. Not a deal breaker though. Just a little teaser to make then think they may finally get someone to pick up the phone. :)
Oops! Very late on my review. I purchased this several months ago. It's amazing how wonderful it works and how much quieter it is without the constant telemarketing or spam calls. Would definitely recommend this. Was reasonably priced and comes pre-loaded with some of the well know spam numbers. Well worth the money.
This is a great and very easy to use item. Never had a problem with the item. I have blocked over 450 telephone numbers as of this writing. Contact with the seller has been fast!
Really has cut down on the junk calls. We have a business line and have been getting 6 to 10 or so marketing calls everyday. This device has eliminated most of them. Easy to add more to the blocked list too..
For some reason when our local phone company switched from ATT to Frontier, we started getting blocked and private calls, even though we had never received them with ATT and we had selected the block private call feature with Frontier. Frontier claimed that certain telemarketers were able to circumvent its technology, even though the call pretty clearly registered as "unknown" or "blocked" on our Caller ID. Enter this nifty device that does exactly what it shouldn't have been so difficult for Frontier to do: block unknown callers. It also blocks known callers by a simple press of a button after you've received the call. At last, peace!
Well worth the money. Excellent customer service and technical support. Only two improvements that i can think of would make this product even better... 1) give the user the ability to review and delete the blocked numbers starting with the oldest, (currently only allows review and deletion starting with the most recent), 2) allow the user to block by area code AND prefix.
Although this product looked a little flimsy when I first opened it, this product really works! I was skeptical about how it would preform since we would receive literally no less than 20-30 calls PER DAY by solicitors. After the 30 second installation the solicitors calls subsided 10 folds. After blocking roughly 10-15 calls we may get zero-one call a day. Great product would recommend to friends and family.
Once you establish a nuisance caller this thing then operates like Tim Howard. You can also block entire area codes so maybe its more effective than Timothy.
BLOCKS 95% OF ANNOYING CALLS. I HAVE TO PICK THE PHONE UP, ONCE IN AWHILE, TO SEE IF THERE IS A DIAL TONE. THE PHONE IS SO QUIET. SHOULD HAVE PURCHASED THIS A LONG TIME AGO.
Best buy we ever did!!. Everyone should have one!!
Seems to be working well, I have had no unwanted phone calls!
works flawlessly; push the block button and you won't be bothered from that number again; great price for peace and quiet
My mother was going crazy from robo calls. This device completely stopped it all. It is a shame we have to purchase something to keep from being harassed but hooray for this product.
This is a great product and performs up to its claims. The nuisance calls have greatly decreased almost completely eliminated in about a week. I was getting about 25 calls a day. I have donated to a number of causes which makes every group trying to sell something interested in talking to me. Several callers are still able to get through despite my manually entering their number. My guess is they are tricking he caller ID with a fake number. For those calls I go right to the Call Blocker box and as I answer the phone I push the Call Blocker button. This seems to block most of what I believe to be fake caller ID numbers. I have not yet blocked all "unknown" numbers as I fear blocking someone that I really would want to reach me. The "unknowns" are about the only ones left getting trough and that will be the next step.
The CPR Call Blocker is everything it claims to be. An amazing device!
I got this for my mom and she loves it. She has already noticed a reduction in the calls from the per-programed numbers and has been able to block more as they have come in. She dislikes answering the house phone because of all of the sales calls. Now with the Call Blocker it is much better. :)
I was continually bothered by nuisance callers. My home phone only allows for ten blocked phone numbers and we all know that ten might as well be zero. I did some research and read a number of reviews before I settled on this product. Immediately upon setting up this system, my calls dropped by 80-90%. Now, the calls that do get through only get through once. Then they're blocked forever. This is one of my favorite buys of 2015. Just be sure to follow the set up intructions.
Seems to work ok.
Only had this about a week now, but product is performing as advertised. Very easy to set-up and use.
This is one of those things that you really don't notice when it is working well. Other than once when it appeared to have disconnected itself, this has worked fine. Shuffling the cords around fixed the problem and it hasn't reoccurred.
Ok product for the price
Requires a bit of manual intervention initially, but it does what it's supposed to do and has reduced the amount of nuisance calls dramatically.
This is the best call blocker I have every used. It works great. The telemarkers & scam scumers have finally been silenced. Whoo hoo. I love it.
It works great! I found that entering the phone numbers I wanted to block manually only took a few seconds each. Never heard from them again. I DON'T have Uverse Voice anymore, I hated it. I had switched back to a plain old phone line so this might be why it works so well for me.
We receive constant nuisance calls daily. We google them to find so many others that are getting them and there is no way to really stop them. This works extremely well and boy was it easy to set up. I sorta have fun with the power to block these jerks with just the push of a button.
Love this product! I've only had it a few weeks and it has worked like a charm. We were getting 7 - 8 telemarketer calls daily, and since installing the CPR call blocker, only one has managed to get though, which I was able to block immediately at the press of a button. Easy to set up, easy to use, and so worth the price! Enjoying my peace and quiet from those out of control telemarketer phone calls!
So far so good. The only question I have is ... according to the instructions I need to first answer the call before I block it. I suppose that makes sense, but it might be nice to able to block w/o first answering it.
My CPR V108 works as advertised and is very easy to use. Very satisfied.
Excellent product. Reduced the number of unwanted solicitation calls by 95% the first week. Went from 3-4 each day to 1 each week. After the first 2 months of adding in the numbers not initially blocked, unwanted calls are now down to about 1 a month.
Great product easy to set up and use. No more cold calls!!
Great blocking device! Fast shipping, easy to follow instructions, and outstanding, timely customer support. Connected to Panasonic base station of four-handset system using cable-provided VOIP -- CPR Call Blocker V108 effectively blocks all unwanted calls. Best money you can spend to stop phone harassment!
Works great. Finally quiet in our home. Really easy to block a number. Just answer it and as soon as you realize it's a junk call press #2 and its blocked. Best part is since the device is connected between the phone line (Router) and my phone system, calls are blocked before they ring. Love it!
I am from Uk and we have same problem as you with all spam calls.We have TPS ..Telephone Preference Service but that is just a waste of time but obviously its keeping lots of people in a job they are not even doing. CPR Call blocker has been the best buy for me as the spam calls we get is bordering on harassment here. Its easy to set up and easy to block numbers. Its just so nice to not get disturbed by nuisance calls any more.
I LOVE THIS !! I can't tell you how happy I am to push the Block Button or enter a number I know is spam. My phone doesn't ring any more & it use to all day & night long with junk callers. It's So Darn Easy to Set Up, too. This product has brought peace and quiet to our household. Everyone should get one.
Love this little box- works just as advertised! I was getting calls everyday before I installed this and have not had any since I put this in. Easy to set up; you just dial codes into your phone.
Works as advertised! Wonderful!
Product works exactly as advertised. Nuisance calls stopped immediately. I started to get worried because we had not received ANY phone calls for over 24 hours after I installed the call blocker so I had my son use his cell phone and call our home phone to ensure it still worked. Needless to say the home phone still worked fine, just without the nuisance callers!!!!!!
We have only had it for a month, but we liked it so well we ordered one for my Mother. We can now take our naps in peace!
This was easy to set up and most of all no unwanted phone calls
I recently purchased the call blocker am really satisfied with it. highly recommend it is a way to get rid of unwanted calls..
It works fine
This thing works! I am thrilled! I have service thru Cable, and I have call waiting, caller Id, all that stuff. Simple to set up. From the minute I plugged it in it blocked the weird unknown, international, etc calls. I didn't have to do anything. We have a policy here at our house: if you call us, reveal who you are or you will be blocked. In several months usuage, I've only had to "unblock" one number, and it was my fault I blocked it in the first place. Love it.
It works as described, soon after this purchase, I bought a new phone/answering system which had call blocking. Bottom line, this product allows me to block certain groups or types of callers while it's simpler to use my phone to block specific numbers. This guy will do it all, but using codes dialed in from my phone to select all options and not really seeing what was entered or stored makes this unit somewhat non user friendly. I figured it out, so it's not that hard, but I did keep the instructions and codes handy for easy reference.
It is better then I thought it would be. Once you block a number with it...the next time they call...it is just one ring and it hangs up on the caller.
We were getting calls from Out of Area, Private callers, and out of state calls that we didn't know. Since we hooked the call blocker to our phone there are fewer calls. My husband is on the ball if a call does come in he just pushes the button to add to the list. I recommend this product to all others who are tired of unwanted calls.
My office was receiving a dozen telemarketing calls a day! After we plugged in CPR Call Blocker we have been able to block those calls and now can concentrate on the calls we need to address!
I bought this for my Grandmother after an upsetting call a scammer who tried to extort money for her. My Aunt was able to set it up and it works really well (so much so that my Aunt bought one for herself). I would prefer there be a display that kept track of the number of calls and record a history but functionally it works well as described.
At first when I received the unit it would either block all calls or block no calls. Matthew from CPR (email) support provided me some troubleshooting guidance and we determined that my DSL filter was at fault. After replacing the DSL filter, the CPR V108 Call Blocker now works great. I programmed in the 38+ numbers that I logged that I wanted to block and the Call Blocker is now working as it should. My phone no longer rings on these nuisance calls which is great. Any new calls I receive can then be blocked using "# 2" on my DECT cordless phone. So, if for some reason your CPR Call Blocker does not work, most likely the support team at CPR will find a solution. Highly recommended...
We've had it operating for 2 weeks and already have seen a large amount of calls coming in. Thank you!
Once I adjusted my Verizon voicemail pickup to the delay (1 ring) from this device, all was well. Seems to significantly minimize the annoying rbocall volume. Now if I could get my wife to press the block now button during TM calls, my blocked averages would jump
I have had this item for a few weeks now and it's already minimizing the daily unwanted "robocalls" I've been getting. I tried to get Call Block added to my phone bill from Cox Communications, but they wouldn't let me have it separate from all the other features they offer for which they wanted $15/month! I declined and decided to look for an alternative when I found this on Amazon. I'm lucky enough to have a DECT cordless phone in addition to more modern cordless phones, so I have the CPR Call Block box upstairs in a room but keep the DECT phone in my living room and whenever I receive an unwanted call, I allow it to ring through and as soon as they hang up, I immediately enter the number into the DECT phone and that puts an end to that phone number! Definitely worth the money. I'm actually eager for my unwanted calls so I can finish plugging all the numbers in to the box.
Excellent product and happy to buy it
We were receiving so many unwanted calls during the day and even in the middle of the night so we decided to try the CPR Call Blocker V108 and we couldn't be happier. Over 99.9% of the calls immediately stopped. The Call Blocker is very small and sits nicely right by the phone. This is a five star product all day long.
Best money I ever spent! Easy-to-set up and works as advertised. I now look forward to those irritating calls so I can answer and then gleefully push the Block Now button, me getting the last laugh. Phone has been getting pretty quiet; love it!
Works great, easy to install and block unwanted calls. Peace at last! I give it the highest rating.
Seems to work as advertised.i have new Panasonic phones and press 2 to block.very simple to set up.
Unwanted calls are down, so the unit is doing its job
Cat's meow! Does the job well; wife who is disabled no longed has to deal with annoying phone calls five or six times a day.
The blocker will usually emit a high pitched electronic squeal when you answer a call from some mobile carriers. The blocker also has some issues with programming on some US landline providers. Programming mode kind of works for some settings but not all.
It has cut the telemarketing calls to almost nothing. When a new one comes in two quick key presses and the new number is blocked.
Got sick of the telemarketers and scammers so I bought this little gem. It is absolutely fantastic!!! Works like a charm and highly recommended.
Had it for a month and it is great. All telemarketing calls have pretty much gone bye bye. Love hitting the button or pressing #2 on phone when one gets through. Just got a second one for my elderly parents and the scammer calls are pretty much gone. Great product.
Hooked it up and hit the call block on two calls already and so far neither have called back. Phone has been quieter than it has in weeks. Too early to fully say this does work but I give it an excellent based on the number of harassing calls I did get daily. Time will tell....
It works great and I am not sure which numbers were already blocked on the device, but we have had fewer junk calls already. We heartily recommend this product. Easy to set up and easy to use.
This is the best call blocker that there is.I have had a business phone for almost 40 years so I receive many,many calls that are totally wasted.Sometimes there would be 2 robo calls at thje same time.About 6 years ago I purchased a unit made by Privacey Corp.(not available anymore) that would route the un-wanted call to another answering device and the main phones would not ring.Because it would only hold 200 numbers or less it was filled up in less then a year.A few years ago I sure could have used this new call blocker.A illegal operation would call my phone number 20 or more times a day.I finally had to get the Minnesota Attorney General after them. This is certainly the best unit there is.I wish I could give it 20 or more stars. I would like to add a few more comments.I am having so much fun with this unit.So many of the numbers I have blocked they try again to call but my phone never rings.What I am going to do fron now on when a party calls trying to sell something I will tell them I am going to put them on hold.Then I will say to them they they may get disconnected and if they do .Please call right back as I push the BLOCK NOW button. What a riot when they try to call back LOL.,LOL. I have appox.6 telephones for my business line which is Ooma.Also 4 caller ID units plus tha portable phones (3) which also has caller ID on them.The way I have the call blocker hooked up is right before my answering machine with a caller ID unit.What makes this unit so nice is that after I block a call and they all do call back the unit blocks the call to the main caller ID and the answering machine.All of the other phones and caller ID's light up for one ring which I do not hear and the blocked call never get thru.What a great invention.
The sound of fantastic Silence ! What can I say? How much would you pay for privacy from all the Money Grubbing Thiefs out there trying to lie and steal from the Public ? I paid under $40.00..... Am I happy, you got that Right !
This product is worth the price, does everything that is advertised...the phone rings soooo much less...keep up with the changing numbers that unwanted callers use...use the zip code only to block call's when you can...I recommend this product.
This device seems to be working quit well so far .I haven't blocked many numbers as of yet, but since it is pre-programmed, that seems to be working nicely. Our unwanted calls have dwindled, as we used to receive six to eight calls a day, and now we only receive only a few in a few days. I had thought about terminating our home phone because we were relentlessly being harassed by these telemarketers, etc. I have around one hundred and twenty five calls blocked through our phones, and we know when a blocked call comes in as the phone rings once. Now, we aren't even receiving these nearly as much as we did because of the cpr call blocker. My wife works night shift and she was being awakened by these people and now we have some peace and quiet for her. So, I would have to say we are quite happy with this call blocker. It is easy to set up and use as well. A really good product that does what it is advertised to do.
Works great, so far! I highly recommend the call blocker for anyone who gets unsolicited calls and makes a great gift for young and old!
This device doesn't block everything it should but overall it's worth the price paid. I found that blocking the numbers manually and placing a 1 at the beginning works best. It's definitely worth a try since the Do Not Call setup is a joke and the phone companies allow a maximum of 20 numbers to be blocked so you have to constantly remove numbers so you can add new ones. Whitepages.com broadcasts our numbers for all to see. You can disassociate your name with your number but your number is published by whitepages.com . CPR Call Blocker does more than the government, the phone companies and whitepages.com so it's worth trying.
I haven't had my call blocker only about 2 weeks, but blocked several and seems like the calls have slowed down from what I had in the past. Roger A.
I have been using this for about two weeks and am impressed so far. I have blocked all of the "toll free" area codes, international calls. I then blocked specific numbers not included in those area codes, and now receive no more than one or two undesirable calls per week. I then block those numbers. This product works as advertised and in my case was easy to set up and use. Blocked numbers are intercepted, and the phone does not ring. One feature missing is an opportunity to review the blocked list. That feature is included on a higher level model which has a screen enabling one to view the most recently added numbers, but that model costs nearly twice what this one does with (as best I can tell) no other advantages. Note: My phones are Panasonic DECT instruments with a base (to which the Call Blocker is installed in series) and wireless extensions, and my phone service is through VOIP.
Peace and quiet!
Plug it in and it works. Ability to block a number by entering #2 on your phone is a great feature.
I am totally satisfied with this product. I am finally finding the peace I should have with my phone. If a few sneak through (using local numbers for telemarketing) hitting #2 adds them to the list.
This gadget really works
Call blocker works great!
Works great! No more calls. Should have done this long ago.
Evidently works as advertised. I push the button and no more calls from that number.
CPR Call Blocker V108 - 1200 Number Capacity - World #1 - Block Telemarketing Calls Pleased so far. Worth the money. Less unwanted calls. Easy to install. Only problem- A person's name appears twice on caller ID.
With little more than plugging it in my daily annoying telemarketer calls have virtually ceased. Why didn't somebody tell me about these things years ago?
This baby is a jewel, easy to set up, my only complaint is you don't really know if you have blocked the call or not. The newer model has a screen which probably solves that, but we opted for the cheaper one and I love how we are down from 5 calls a day to maybe 2 a week, but I just keep adding those to the list through the phone receiver.
Have been using the Call Blocker for about 2 months. It is simple and easy to use, instructions are clear and straight forward. I gave this product only 4 stars as it has worked like a champ for 99.9% of calls but cannot seem to block one specific spammer (robo caller who has used over 24 different numbers from the same area code). That said, the customer support found on the web-site and forums has been super user friendly and very useful. I would recommend this product.
Excellent item. Very easy to use, and has cut my telemarketing/solicitor calls down almost 98%. I love the idea you can block certain area codes too; I went onto the BBB site and got the list of the most common/known area codes known for this type of fraudulent activity and added those too. You can block specific #'s easily(unblock them as well...), not to mention those 'unavailable' and 'private' #'s you don't recognize. Plus once they are blocked, you never hear a ring from that # or area code again. I was very impressed w/this, esp since you can block up 1,200 of these unwanted #'s. It works!!!!
I 've recorded previous experiences with the call blocker. I have had it for several weeks now and, while I cannot program it because my telephone service runs through my modem/router (the speed dial codes in my Arris router/modem are too similar to the call blocker), I find I can still use it for all the purposes I would like. Any call that I don't want I push the "Block Now" button. I haven't had a single call from the usual annoying telemarketers, etc. It is evidently working for international calls also as I received one of those and "blocked" it with the button. No more calls! I'm not sure that you ever have to program this device; all bothersome calls have stopped! That's why I bought it.
I have it installed at the base station for my cordless phone system. I have another cordless system and two hard wired "old fashioned" phones. I purchased one Call Blocker to try but after reading the installation instructions, I thought I would need to purchase several more. I find that I don't need to, since when a blocked call comes in all of my other phones ring one time and stop. I then check caller ID on the other cordless system and find that the call was from a "blocked" number. I can live with the one ring on the other phones, it was the multiple ringing from the unwanted numbers that was annoying.
Purchased based on customer reviews. Our evenings are more peaceful now without the telemarketing calls! Easy to install, only took a few seconds.
It has brought peace to my home. thank you
Best thing I ever bought. We were swamped with political and every other kind of leach. We hooked it up and bingo, that alone stoped most of the calls. Then the fun starts, when you get bad call, you just press 2 and they are toast. Thank you CPR Call Blocker.
I'm really enjoying my quietness, I rated it an 4 only because it let's the blocked number ring once. I'm completely satisfied!!!!!!!
Now that it is installed, no one calls me! LOL I had my doubts about it but after it blocked the first call, I was sold.
The call blocker works exactly as advertised. There was a significant drop in unwanted calls as soon as I installed it. As a few additional calls made it through the screening, it was easy to add the numbers to the blocked list. Great, easy to use, very effective product.
this has absolutely reduced the number of annoying calls. i actually look forward to answering the call to get them connected so i can hit the block button. it's the simple pleasures.
I've been plagued with robo and scammer calls for some time now. They prey on seniors with everything from Medical Alerts to Microsoft says I have a computer problem. I have a Panasonic Cordless that blocks 30 numbers and I filled that many times. I would have to delete numbers to add more. I kept a record of the numbers and ended up with 85 before I ordered the CPR Call Blocker. And what can I say but Wow! Since I plugged that baby in I haven't had one robo or scammer call. My phone was so quiet I wasn't sure it was even working. I had to call myself with my cell phone to make sure. I am very pleased with this call blocker and wish I had ordered sooner. Well worth it. Update: Spoke too soon. Had a robo call today from New York that got through the CPR Blocker but was caught by my Panasonic phone which let it ring once and hung up. So I promptly added that number to the CPR Blocker. No more calls from that number. Update: Almost a year later and this thing has been a godsend. You can't block them all because callers can change their Caller ID at will, sometimes using your own name and number. Pretty bad when you have to block your own number. Most calls are blocked but newer ones come through and I check them out on Google. Then I punch them into the CPR Call Blocker and no more trouble from that number. Couldn't be without it.
love it. I am having fun blocking call from people I don't want to talk with. very good produce
Great product! Very simple to set up and use. Now I don't have to deal with the annoying calls from all of the sales companies. Cheers
I love this call blocker. Haven't received hardly any telemarketing calls since I hooked it up. All I have had to push the block button is two times. I surely would recommend it.
Haven't used it yet, because ever since I plugged it in, I haven't received any calls I want to block. I know I like it though, because my parents have one and it works!
No problems so far. Easy to install, tested it out by blocking/unblocking our cells. Works fine with our Magicjack service. Bought this to block a few specific harassing people, and it seems to be doing the job.
I don't know if the pre-installed blocked numbers are responsible but spam calls have significantly reduced to zero after installing this unit. I'll assume that is the reason because I have not had to block any calls since installing on my business line. The installation was a breeze and took less than 5 minutes. I recommend this unit to anyone plagued with spam calls.
The best review that can be given any device like this is - IT Works! Enough said.
So far it works like it is supposed to. I have only had it for three days.
great product, meets our expectations, and your delivery service is great.
Works once area codes of robo-callers are entered; that is easier than entering specific full phone numbers. For local area codes, specific idiot caller numbers must be entered. Seems to take a few days for fully work. The bulk of robo-callers have appeared to have given up trying to get through. My caller ID feature still shows attempted calls but friends and family get through fine and can leave messages OK. Attempts of robo-callers to leave any message is blocked. Can not have any old phones hooked up; all calls must be routed through V108 in series with prime phone.
Went from 8-10 a day to 3 on the 2nd day and now only 1 in the last three days. Remarkable product! To think I have been dealing with these cold calls for years. Get caller ID and get those rascals off your back. Only regret I did not get the upgraded product it appears to have a couple features I would like but you have to wrestle with me to get this one away. If you are looking at these type of products: stop here and get a CPR.
Finally a tool to fight back with! This thing works! I almost removed a star because you do need to keep the manual close by to get the most use out of it, but that would just be a quibble. The button on the top is simple enough.
I Absolutely LOVE IT, I am completely satisfied with this product........Blocked a lot of unwanted calls
We are very pleased with our purchase of the CPR call blocker V108- 1200Number Capacity. It has made a huge difference in the daily aggravation of receiving 15 -30 calls daily. We have voice mail but it does not interfere andif it did it would be worth the effort to deal with it
Just the best thing that happened for our house lately!!! Easy setup and no more stupid calls to answer any more. Even if one idiot gets though, with one push of a button, the same caller will never be able to reach us again. Well worth the money!!! Love it!!!
This gizmo really works and it is easy to use. Now I only get the rare nuisance call, which goes right unto the block list.
Simple and Short: This device works great. After set-up, programming a few numbers in and we have silence in the house from all the solicitors and unwanted callers. If you are like me, and can't stand all these types of calls, this is the device for you. Longer: After registering with the Do Not Call Registry, the unsolicited calls came in more than ever! You know them all. The last straw was one day, we got 9 robo calls from the same number in the same day. We have a Panasonic Dect 6.0 and phone service provided via cable company (voip). The phone had 30 slots for entering blocked numbers and that worked well. But, it ran out of space and the phone rang once, even for blocked numbers. About once per month, I would have to free up more space by deleting some blocked numbers. Frustrating to manage. We tried an expensive phone blocker a year ago, but it just would not work for us. Then after the 9 robo calls, I found this one on Amazon and read the reviews. Like you, I read a bunch of the reviews to see if this would this work....it was made in the UK....would it work on US phones....what about a VOIP system....would my caller ID work on it? But seeing that the company rep answered many of these questions and complaints in the reviews, we made the buy decision. Like most men, I thought I could just hook it up without reading instructions. Wrong. I had the lines mixed and it would not work. Read the directions and fixed that. Read further and entered some numbers to block and stopped the anonymous callers. When doing this, you get a few beeps and you don't know if it worked. And once plugged in, there is no light on it....it looks dead....but it is not. So, I was a bit skeptical, at first. From the first day, we noticed almost no incoming solicitor/unwanted calls (maybe blocked from one of those pre-programmed spam numbers). Family calls, work, etc. all came through...no problem. One day I got a call from "697" number. It rang thru, but I hit the Block Now button and gone. Never got another call from that number. Also, for the first few days, a number I entered to block with a 512 area code came thru (caught by the Dect phone blocker, however). I re-entered the number again to make sure that I entered it correctly. Now, nothing from this number comes through to the phone. Nothing appears on my phone call log. The only way I know this device is working is that our cable provider gives us a caller ID on the TV screen when someone calls (while we are watching TV). Saw that famous 512 number on the TV screen, no ring and nothing on call log. Last night, it called four times. No nothing on a ring.....Bam! Some of our local spam callers, change up the numbers to try to outwit call a blocker. But, I know i can just hit the Block Now button and gone. This device works as advertised. When you have it hooked up, as I said above, it looks dead (e.g. no lights on)....but it is active and working. As others had indicated, we now have silence in the home from these unwanted calls. I check the phone call logs and don't even see these numbers listed. It works!
I really like this CPR Call Blocker V108. Since Ive been using it, lot of the calls i use to get are not getting through now. I just wish i had known about this call blocker a long time ago. I think i made a smart and wise purchase.
We've only had the Call Blocker for about a week and have entered about 100 numbers into it. We are retired and it is great to be able to sleep past 8 am and to not be constantly getting unwanted calls throughout the day. Thank you for this wonderful product!
In spite of the many five-star reviews, I was still skeptical when I ordered. NOW I AM A BELIEVER. I've been on the National Do Not Call Registry for years and was still getting 2 to 3 nucience calls per day. Now, I get 1 or 2 per week and I am able to do a #2 and they will never be able to call me again.
I hate telemarketers! I hate robocalls! I hate polls! This thing destroys them! No more harassment. No more disturbing my peace at home. All day long I am directed by, and respond to, various beeps, honks, whistles and rings. I DON'T need any more at home! I value downtime and the tranquility of home. I despise those who think they should be pestering me at home even though I've registered on the joke known as the "Do not call list." I LOVE THIS THING! It works as advertised and is very easy to set up. Good bye disturbers of the peace! I will not miss you!
So far we are very happy with our new CPR. It was simple to connect and probably knocked off 60-70% of our unwanted solicitations immediately. We were concerned about how it would operate with six portable extension phones, but so far everything is working well.
I was a little leery about this product due to the wide range of opinions, but gave it a try. Our unwanted calls have dropped to practically nothing!
I have purchase 3 of these for myself and others. They work. Just for fun, I keep a list and I have never seen a number ring through again after being blocked. Don't know how it works and don't care because it is so simple, so effective.
I bought the CPR V.107 to replace my previous Digitone Call Blocker which I loved but it only held 80 numbers and I needed more capacity than that. I would have purchased the V201 model with the digital display but for some reason I didn't see that model when I searched for call blockers. I do miss having a digital display after having one on my Digitone call blocker. What I was able to do was to connect both call blockers in series which now gives me the best of both worlds (similar to the V201). I found that connecting the CPR call blocker first and then feed those calls to my old Digitone call blocker works well while connecting them the other way around did not work properly. So far, the CPR V.107 is working well and I have not received any repeat calls that I have blocked but if I had to do it over, I would just get the V201 the next time as I like the digital display and wouldn't need to take up the desk space by having the Digitone connected to my existing V.107 call blocker.
I finally have peace and quiet in my house. No more telemarketers are getting through. This product works exactly as advertised on my particular phone system (AT&T land line and Panasonic cordless). I can't vouch for how it will work on other systems, but the people at CPR are extremely friendly and helpful and can probably solve any problem you're having.
It now seems to be working correctly but it started blocking all calls after entered the format for 'block last call" per instructions...which i did not realise till I started getting calls from people asking what was wrong with my landline. I contacted CPR who told me i must "remove' my filters and buy one of theirs from their website to which I responded that i do not have 'filters' on my phone. They then responded by sending me their answer book for 'foreign' countries (it's made in England apparently) and I was able to reset and fix it and from that answer book it said "tell foreigners'' never to use the block last number feature. But since it did block all calls once, I now double check occasionally using my cell to make sure is is working correctly.....but it seems to be working fine and the peace & quiet is well worth the money.
Only had call blocker a few weeks and it's working well. Were driven to distraction with calls, not any more!
After trying and returning (didn't work) the Pro Call Blocker from a different vendor, I purchased the CPR Call Blocker. Connected it, programmed it and left it alone. Works like a champ. I have it blocking all 800 calls or calls without caller-id. Phone rings once and Call Blocker hangs up the call. I can still see the caller-id on my phones so I can tell what number was blocked.
When I dropped the phone company's Privacy Manager service, I purchased this little guy to hangup on annoying, unwanted calls from telemarketers. It comes pre-set to block 1-800, 1-866, and Unknown callers. Obviously, it requires caller id to operate, but our phones don't receive caller id information until after the first ring. You'd think would be a hassle but it clearly beats hearing 3 or more rings, the answering machine greeting, then a hang-up, leaving me to delete a blank "message". Now when we receive this unwanted calls, the phone rings one time, caller id is matched to a blocked number, then the phone hangs up. I never look at the caller id unless the phone rings a second time. It is a thing of beauty. I have had to enter additional number to block, and it works great!!
So far its seems to be working great! It has reduced the receipt of unwanted calls which is good. TNX, Chuck T.
One great item, no s---. No aggravating calls for two weeks, except for today, one new unblocked call got through, but no more. Common give me more to block, I think I can block all robo rotary numbers from a nuisance caller. I also called the phone with the call blocker from a differnt phone having a number I previously blocked to test the call blocker. What you hear on the originating blocked telephone number/phone is a beautiful open air sound, and no words, no message. What beautiful sadistic pleasure to know that nuisance callers are just wasting their time and their money calling my phone. Thanks Call Blocker.
Product seems to work fine. One ring for callers that are blocked. No way of knowing number of blocked callers
Tried another brand first........ did't work......This one does......We did not pay for faster shiping..... and it arived within a week...
Very good works just like I wanted it to. Very good very good very good item. Work like it is suppose to.
We were getting an inordinate (or perhaps, ordinate) number of unsolicited calls. I resented the calls because the caller stood to make a profit from the calls, yet I was the one being inconvenienced. The CPR Call Blocker has changed that: now I feet put-out that I have to remove the calls from my Missed Call List; it's my perception that not all are listed, just those that rang a number of times. Until our politicians--don't they allegedly work for us?--act, In my opinion this is the best answer
Finally! While not the ultimate solution, this is the best method I have found to date to stem the growing onslaught of annoying phone calls. The ba$@%#rds still get through but the number of calls that get through has dropped dramatically. Highly recommended. Some expressed some difficulty setting up...I had none of that. Plugged in and the thing worked immediately and as advertised.
I have Century Link phone service and a Panasonic cordless phone. Works just as advertised. Default settings are all fine by me, but are easy to change if you like. Very easy to add callers to the blacklist. My junk call frequency has dropped to near zero, and if any get through it feels great to add them to the blacklist and realize they'll never bug me again. Two thumbs up for CPR.
This product works extremely well! Nuisance calls have been reduced dramatically over the past 3 weeks. Importantly, this blocker is EASY TO USE. It effectively blocks specific numbers or area codes, and the user can block the last call without having to know the specific number. It has changed the way we feel about incoming calls because of the filter. Love it! PS: We tried another brand of blocker (that I won't mention) before this one, and it was so difficult to use, we returned it the next day.
After reading some of the negative reviews I wasn't sure about this gizmo but what the hay! It was through Amazon so I had some recourse in the event that things went pear-shaped. They didn't. I installed the unit per the instructions and it has been working ever since. In a word BRILLIANT!! So others know, I have a Uniden DECT 6.0 wireless base with four remotes running on Frontier Comm's FIOS offering. So if you run across some negative review saying it won't work on FIOS or with Frontier's service just remember: some people shouldn't touch anything more complicated than two tin cans hooked together by string!
Works well. Telemarketers rarely ring anymore & then only one ring. Robo calls dont get thru at all. Once it finds the number and locks in on it.
Works so good and all the features work just like they said they would..No problems and hopefully it will keep working just fine...I have tried others and none compare to this cpr v201 call blocker . So peaceful without the annoying calls I was receiving..thank you cpr....
Works exactly as advertised, I was getting inundated with annoying Telemarketing phone calls at all hours of the day. Now my phone only rings from people I actually want to hear from. GREAT PRODUCT!
I received my call blocker 2 weeks ago and after a week, my phone was wonderfully quiet. It comes with 4 preblocked items....Unavailable and 800 numbers being two of them. I'm not sure if that will be a problem as far as having legit numbers blocked, but hopefully not. It is also very simple to set up. It was just a matter of changing out chords...probably took about 2 minutes.
This unit performs as advertised, it blocks any numbers programed into it. I have Verizon DSL and Verizon voice mail and so far no coexistence issues with this unit. I have it connected to our main phone, an older Panasonic DECT 6 cordless phone with 3 handsets, caller id and an answering machine. I also have a Sony wall phone hard wired in case of a power failure. When a call comes in the Sony phone rings once so caller id info can be checked by the call blocker. If the calling number is one blocked the cordless phone never rings and the Sony stops ringing. The only reason I don't have the phones connected in series so none of them ring is that the two phones are connected to a common junction box in the basement. I'd have to put the call blocker at that point to have none of the phones ring, which is inconvenient. This setup works for me. I get to see the calling number on both the Sony phone as well as the caller id log on my satellite (Directv) box. If I don't recognize the number I Google it and if its a nuisance number I program it into the call blocker. The only thing that could be improved are the instructions that come with the call blocker. The first few of the instructions never mention that you have to get a dial tone first to program a number into the unit where the later instructions say to get a dial tone as the first step. But this is just a nit. Now if the unit lasts for a while I will me ecstatic with it.
We live in a very popular retirement community in Central Florida, making it a target for telephone scammers and fraud. I do not answer these calls, however, they are disruptive and come in at all hours of the day and night! I know they are scams because I look the #s up on-line to read other folks' comments. I searched on-line for a device to help block these calls, as we have a land-line. Of all of the devices listed on Amazon, who I trust totally, the CPR Call Blocker had the best ratings, the best warranty, and the very best price! We even signed up for the newsletter!!! I wish that I could send you a picture of me smiling every time I press the button to block an unwanted call!!! :-) If anyone wants to contact me personally, I would be so happy to do so. Thank you again for this magical device!!! Sandy Eichler in the U.S.A.
One of the best things I have done for myself was to purchase this item. Had too many unwanted calls.
This is the most wonderful product I have ever bought. It very successfully filters out nuisance calls. The difference it makes to one's life is enormous. A thousand thank yous. John Wolfson, NYC.
Simple hookup (I have OOMA) Simple instructions, Eliminates ALL CALLS - Saved all hassell calls on CID onmy phone while waiting for delivery of the Call Blocker. 18 calls blocked the 1st day-Wonderfully simple effective product.
It seems to work fine. The only issue I have is sometimes when I program a number in it will cause issues with my phone. I think its more with my programing than with the product. I am pleased with it so far.
After three days of programing in a few numbers and area codes...or by just pushing the button, not one call from anyone I didn't want to speak to. AT LAST! Simple to set up if you can read. Can't wait for the 2014 mid-term campaigns/elections because I'll never be bothered again!!!!!! EVER!!!!!!!
The day after we installed the CPR Call Blocker our phone calls went down 90% or more. We used to get 7-10 solicitation calls per day, with a lot of them being the incredibly annoying 'silent calls'. Now we get 1 or 2 unwanted calls a week! Which are promptly dealt with with the simple push of one button. Way cool! I actually look forward to getting a nuisance calls so I can cheerfully inform them that I am glad they called . . . because I am going to block you FOREVER with this button! Ahahahahahaha!
So, I bought this product for my mother because whenever I visited her, I noticed the phone seems to ring about once every 30 minutes with a telemarketer on the other end. She is retired so is usually at home. Typically, she would just pick up the phone and immediately hang it up. I explained to her that these were usually automated calls and that wouldn't do anything in the long run. I looked for a better solution and found CPR Call Blocker on Amazon. I figured I couldn't go wrong for the price. I have to admit I was surprised at how well it seemed to work as soon as I plugged it in. Almost all calls stopped immediately. I also made sure to block Private Caller calls. A couple of telemarketing calls will slip through on occasion but you can easily block the last caller and that seems to do the trick. My mom says she loves it!
I finally broke down and purchased a blocker after the scam calls got completely out of control and my cable company blocks were full up. I purchased this unit after extensive research online. This unit is very easy to set up and operate. The immediate Block call button works as advertised and every number I have blocked remains blocked. I would have given it 5 stars except for two things. The first is that it took over 3 weeks to get here after ordering. The second is that it does not work with my AT&T answering machine. I can hear my recording answering calls, but his unit hangs up on the caller and sends it to the cable voicemail box. It's a bit of a nuisance retrieving messages from the voicemail versus the answering machine, but better than all the scammers.
The call blocker works well and is easy to use. We were getting calls from Jamaica and other countries. No one gets through now except wanted calls. We are very pleased with it.
In a perfect world, this unit would allow for blocking on any phone extension in the household--not just the one to which it is connected. Although you can program numbers directly into the call blocker, it must be plugged into the wall outlet. Sadly, our only wall outlets are in the basement (go figure...) from which we are absent about 99% of the time. So, with our layout AND our U-verse system, the best we can do is block calls when we are close enough to reach the blocker itself. Still, the call blocker has helped a great deal. Our nuisance calls have been reduced from a dozen a day to 2 or 3 and occasionally none. Too bad it's ineffective against the faux numbers that change daily and aren't repeated OR completely anonymous calls. Yes, I would recommend the CPR call blocker, but wish this company would come out with an enhanced version to solve the problems I mentioned which, I've noted, have been reported by other ATT users.
It arrived on time. I initially hooked it up in series between the answering machine and the telephone, and it did not appear to work. I now have it hooked up in parallel, and it seems to be working. I could not have done this without the two way plug that you suggested.
I have had my CPR Call Blocker hooked up for under a month now and everything seems to be working great...
best thing I have ever bought. It actually worked and like a charm. Worth every penny. I would get if you are even considering this
This one is easy to program, callers I have blocked don't even make the phone ring once. I was getting dozens of harassing telemarketer calls and finally have peace from that. Don't waste your money on any caller blocker but this one. I kept trying everything they said to make the other one work and never did succeed. It was almost exactly the same price and was a total rip off.
Works as advertised. Reduced almost all of my nuisance calls. Easy to use. I would like to see a wireless unit developed next, but this one gets the job done!
Easy to connect. I have successfully blocked many numbers that were previously calling my home. Whenever I see a number on my caller I.D. that I want to block, I just press the "block now" button and the number never gets through again! Most of the time I don't even hear the phone ring. Occasionally, it rings once and that's it. If I am not home when an unwanted call comes in, I can simply (and I mean very simply) program the unwanted telephone number into the unit using any handset, and the number is blocked. If you need to stop annoying calls and have more peace and quiet. Don't hesitate. Buy this unit. It works as advertised!
After reading many of the reviews I see the CPR call blocker is a hit or miss with different phone services. I have Verizon digital voice & found it only works parallel conneced, and must press the botton when an unwanted call is coming in & then it will block that number if it calls again.This is not convenient, you have to be near the phone to do this, thus the 3 star rating.
Don't like not being able to review the blocked #'s, altho they apparently have model that does of which I was unaware until after purchase. However, after doing some "blind" testing, unit appears to function for blocking and block remova,l as intended. Maybe Amazon will let me exchange for visible number model.
works very well, but this particular blocker does not allow programming when used with TWC phone system. I don't recall a heads up on this before I bought it, but if you're near phone when telemarkers call, it works perfectly.
This is easier to use than expected. While there is no external interface, the tones allow all that is needed. Very simple and reliable.
This is a must have to block all those annoying telemarketing or automated phone calls! If I didn't answer the phone they would call back 3 or more times in the same day! Now, if I could just stop all the mail from the same people.
With the preprogrammed numbers, plus some of my own, it does an admirable job. When I recognize a nuisance call on the caller ID, I just press the button on the device and that call is blocked and added to the list. Since I've been getting a lot of spoof calls from the 212 area code, I just blocked the whole thing and it has made a huge difference. It may not be perfect, but it's given me a lot of peace and quiet.
Finally we're getting fewer calls from nuisance companies. This was easy to set up. I had made a list of past robo calls and programmed them in immediately and now just hit the block button. Only regret is I didn't buy this sooner
This product has been hooked up for a couple of weeks now and no telemarketers have gotten through so far.....
Call Blocker being used with Panasonic KX-TG-6541 Cordless system: First glitch -- the "block last caller" caused all incoming calls to be blocked. Tech Support called and immediate response was that this feature was not usable on some US set-ups. No big problem - will just not use this feature. Second glitch -- The answering system on my KX-TG-6541 would not operate when the Call Blocker was installed -- Tech Support could not help. Phone would ring 3 times and then stop with no message left. Played around with the KX-TG-6541 settings and found that by changing the 4 ring answer setting to 3 rings it would get the message. So have just left it at that setting. Since I do not use the remote access feature (3 rings), it should not be a problem.
We now rarely receive nuisance calls. We have cable TV through our phone company and can see caller ID on the TV screen. When I see an 800 number I wait but the phone never rings. If a call ever does get through, I just key it in per the instructions and am never bothered by the people again. No more interrupted afternoon naps.
We purchased the call blocker because we still get so many unwanted phone calls from telemarketers. Since getting the CPR call blocker the calls have almost stopped entirely.
Just received my first spam call! Punched the button!! Caller is GONE FOREVER!!! Love it!!!! One proviso - You might have to tinker with your phones. They say the device works best if you have just one phone plugged into the phone line, because it only protects the phone that is plugged into it. Since I had recently bought a new phone, I bought another cordless handset for it to replace my second extension phone. Despite the instructions, the device seems to be working even though I have another extension.
This is the best investment I have ever made. It WORKS! Easy to set up and to use and it works.
I talked with tech support today and I discovered that I had the thing installed incorrectly. The red lights now come on when I pick up my telephone to make a call. I have not yet tried to enter any numbers because I have been busy with other things. I am getting calls on both my home telephone and my cell phone that are from telemarketers and scammers. On my cell phone, numbers that are on the blocked list are STILL getting through! I can't hook this device up to my cell phone :-( I have told Resume Bucket at least three times now to quit calling me and wasting my cell phone minutes! Every time that I tell them to stop calling me they disconnect but will NOT honor my demand to stop calling me! After I have tried again to block numbers I will update this review to let you know if it works.
this call blocker is great and well worth the price! very easy to setup and our home phones have been silent since I got it. It's a must have and I strongly recommend it!!
We tried this without caller id...and it works perfectly if you enter the number manually. We now have about 2 calls a week instead of dozens. We are very pleased. I should say that we have Comcast Internet and AT&T/Verizon services. I recommend this product based upon our outcome.
This CPR Call Blocker is very simple to install and program. The main motivation for buying this one was to stop the steady stream of SPAM phone calls to my elderly mother-in-law. She is very forgetful and would agree to make donations or accept products from these scam callers who would talk her into giving them enough banking information to start automatic ACH withdrawals. Since she lives several hours away some way was needed to stop these calls without taking her phone out. The Caller ID option must be active from your phone service provider for the device to work but that is also needed to see which area codes and numbers to block. This CPR Call Blocker seems to really work as advertised, costs less than most with fewer features and requires no batteries. Plan to buy another to install on my own home phone.
Splitting the standard phone line (RJ11) type 2 lines has been a hassle - since your device does not support two lines, this is the second unit I purchased to take care of the second line - Otherwise, they seem to be working in eliminating the phones used to call us that we do not wish to communicate with. Ralph Hawk firstname.lastname@example.org
This was a snap to install & functions exactly as promised. Unlike other call blockers I tried, this unit works, has clear, easy to follow instructions, and follow-up from the manufacturer to questions was outstanding.
I live in southwestern Ohio and sadly the CPR Call Blocker 106 would NOT work with my Time Warner Cable VoIP. However, the fellows at CPR Call Blocker are the most helpful staff I've interacted with. They suggested various work arounds, wiring configurations and even sent me one of their new updated units, 201, but alas it was not to be. Finally I had to return them but I do believe the units will work as advertised provided you do not have Time Warner Cable VoIP in southwestern Ohio.
We were being constantly harassed by cold callers, and this great device put that all to a halt. Easy to set up and use. Love it!
I am a telecommunications engineer and have been in the industry for 38 years. This is the best call blocker I have ever come across for the money. You could spend 5 times as much and get fair less. The daily calls from the off shore creeps have come to a stop! Get one if you want piece and quite again.
We have one number that has harassed us for about 6 months. I purchased the CPR Call Blocker, and it has been fabulous! I thoroughly enjoy hearing the "faint" ring, and then silence! I can almost visualize the frustration they must be feeling! I definitely recommend this product. It is so easy to use. Shipping was fast and easy..
I would like to amend a previous review of 2 stars. I am in contact with the company about sending me a newer version that should be compatible with my system. They will absorb the higher cost of the newer version and will reimburse me the cost of the return postage of my old unit. The company is very good to deal with. R. Halik
Easy to hook up, and easy to use, I recommend this call blocker to curb annoying calls from telemarketers, and constant hangup calls.
I had another call blocker that blocked a max of 80 calls. It worked great but you could only block 80 calls. I purchased CPR and it's easier to use and blocks 1200 calls!! I really like this product and highly recommend it.
I found that I had to be careful with the installation and how to use the phone to do additional programming. Once I sorted that out the device works very well and I would actually give it 4 1/2 stars if I could. Ben Kornbluth
The call blocker works great! I haven't had the time to really try all the features, but have already blocked a lot of "toll free calls" which annoyed me terribly! I'm happy I purchased it!
This call blocker has worked perfectly for me. I've had it for almost two months now and especially like the ability to block an entire Area Code. I had been receiving scammer calls from foreign people attempting to impersonate the Internal Revenue Service. They called at least twice a day threatening all sorts of legal action, including jail. With the CPR Call Blocker, I blocked their entire Area Code and have received zero calls since. Now when the phone rings, it's from people I wish to hear from. I highly recommend this product.
We were constantly bombarded with unwanted calls at all hours of the day and night. I had an older version of another product but bought this unit about 3 weeks ago. It arrived in about 7 days and they responded immediately to any emails I sent to them. Before I purchased this blocker I was getting 5-10 calls per day. Now I go some days with no calls and some days I have one or two, but the blocker knocks them out immediately. Any numbers I program into the unit are also blocked. It is well worth the money and the peace and quiet during mealtime, family time, nap time, etc., are wonderful. I very seldom write in and endorse a product but this one deserves a response.

Great device. Connected it directly to wall jack with cordless base plugged into the CPR. Blocking calls is easy using the BLOCK NOW button. For those who are not sure if the button works because it gives no visual or audio indicator: test it with your cell phone: Using your cell phone, call your land line and when you see your cell number on caller id, press the Block Now button. The ringing from the incoming call will immediately stop, thats your indicator. To test one step further, call your land line again. Your home phone will not ring, but you will see your cell number come up on caller ID, and the CPR lights will flash red once and go out. After the test you can unblock your cell number with the manual unblock feature. I don't know if this test will work if you utilize a splitter, and I don't have a second landline to test with the line2 jack on the phone. I am impressed with the CPR.
To use a painful quote: "Peace in our Time." The robocalls were getting to the point where I hated being home. 4-6/day were not uncommon, with many repeating calls, over and over. I tried everything. We were only allowed to block 10 numbers from our regular telephone service, and you had to remove one number to add another to make room. Obviously I used up all of the 10. There is no frustration quite like being called over and over by telemarketers using robots to make their calls. I experienced a rage that is very atypical for me. I felt like strangling the perps who were taking away my peace and quiet. One night I thought about looking up call blockers on Amazon, and came upon this device. We got it (from the UK in about 8 days). I went out to purchase some "DECT" cordless phones to replace the others I had. I spent about an hour hooking up the new phones and setting up the call blocker. I had to transfer the lines a bit, but saw it turn on as soon as I made the line transfer (the European line should not be used for American phones). I went through the caller ID list and manually added the numbers. I must have put in at least 15! I was shocked at how many I had. About a week later, I literally had the calls stop. Sometimes I do get a single ring and we laugh when it happens. The house is quiet. We can sit and read or watch TV. I cannot tell you how much this has meant to us. I would not necessarily tell the manufacturers of this little device, but I would easily pay twice what it costs. (Folks, please forgive me for saying that). But you know what I mean.
This is the real deal! We wanted a device that was simple to use and would work. There seemed to be so many options and devices with varying results, that we were hesitant to order at first. First, the shipping does take a little longer than usual given standard shipping rates. This is because it is coming from Great Britain ( no surprise there ). Still the box arrived within two weeks of being ordered. Second, documentation. This device was clearly made in China, but the instructions were in passable English. However, READ the directions. For some reason, you are to connect the line in and line out to line TWO, which is very counterintuitive. That said, three: performance... The device does exactly what it claims. You can block an incoming call in real-time, or delete the number later on. The programming instructions are very clear and worked perfectly every time. You can block specific numbers, specific area codes and pretty much everything in between. So glad we invested in this great device, the sound of silence from our phone is wonderful! We have a VOIP system (Phone Power), and it could not perform any better than advertised.
Initially I had a poor reaction to this device because it was TOO simple to use. That is because it's use isn't that intuitive, something I've come to expect for consumer electronic products. However, I broke down and read the user guide and the sun rose and Angles sang. This device works well and it's so simple to use, once you learn how to turn it on and off, you'll be good to go until you run out of storage capacity. With a 1200 number capacity (which includes whole area codes and carte blanche blockage of unknown or blocked callers), that should be a long time.
Once set up properly this device works well. I encountered issues because I was using a phone system that had its own call blocking features. It would be helpful if the CPR User Guide were add a note about such potential conflicts. The manual actually omits one of their nice features: beyond blocking individual numbers or entire area codes (888, 877, 866, etc.) you can block partial numbers, such as a "1-703-493" mask which will result in all calls from that prefix being blocked. You can even filter it further. I learned this when I contacted their customer support. Since robo-pests are increasingly using incremental numbers to defeat call blocking this is pretty handy.
This product does everything they say...and very well. I had trouble setting it up, it was my stupidity, and called their customer service. Their customer service was fabulous, they walked me through the set up step by step and everything is working fine. No more annoying calls, and when a new one comes in all I do is hit the "block" button and they will not get through again.
It does work and I wish I had bought this sooner. I had some "out of area" calls still getting through and their support staff were quick with replies and fixes. I had not turned on some blocks that seemed irrelevant to me, but everything is needed. The setup was a bit counter-intuitive, so note that you plug into port 2, not 1. Update: I've had this since 11/2013 and it is still effective. Got a junk call the other day and discovered that the device had become unplugged.
Only way to shop. Home Run! It was preloaded and I have only had to add a couple of other numbers. Nice quiet evenings. Easy to install and operate. Even easier to shop, find, and buy from One Stop Amazon. vmrocha
Does exactly what I want it to and holds far more numbers than most. Has eliminated 80% of problem calls in the first week.
The CPR call blocker has brought peace and quiet to my house, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. It was easy to install, and I immediately programmed a list of problem numbers into it. Presto! For subsequent nuisance calls, we can block them with one push of the button. Now, whenever "anonymous" comes calling, it doesn't get a second chance. I regret that I didn't buy this call blocker sooner.
I gave money to a political campaign once, and was stupid enough to include my phone number. This got me on every robocalling list for Gay Jews for Jesus to the Nuke the Moon society and everything in between. I bought a Panasonic phone system because it lets you block numbers, but it caps way too low. Enter this doodad. Super easy to install, I spent about 20 minutes adding the currently blocked numbers to the CPR blocker, and the house phone was immediately better! (It's better than the Panasonic blocker in that the phone doesn't ring once then block, it just never rings). There's a button on it to add a current Pollster who wants to know which bobble head you think should run the Federal Reserve, but there are also codes on a sticker to add to your remote handset to add numbers you accidentally answered (answer: Sammy Sosa). Only downside: it ships from over the Pond, which results in an un-Amazon like delivery schedule. Buy it, it's worth it.
Works fairly well. When using the last number called option and the "unknown" option it starts blocking all calls. Also will not block nuisance "360" area code calls. Tried entering "36" without the 0 but still does not block the "36" portion of area code. If these two options would work it would be a perfect blocker in my opinion.
It really works for us I do love it!!!!!!!!!!! I was easy to set up too, we get alot of scammers on the phone,
This item took 2 weeks to arrive. Longer than some of the reviews suggested, but not unreasonable since it came from the UK. I use Ooma phone service. Our home phone consists of two wired phones upstairs, two wired phones 1st floor and a cordless phone with two extensions that we use on the 1st floor. Since I didn't want to get rid of the wired phones, I first tried connecting the call blocker between the Ooma phone output and our house phone wiring. This gave odd results and didn't work. I assume the call blocker can only handle an output to one phone. What worked good was connecting the call blocker between our house wiring and our cordless phone. And then I turned off the ringer on the two wired phones on the 1st floor. We don't usually get junk calls at night so I left the upstairs ringers on. This way we hear the ringing only after it has successfully passed through the call blocker. One important note is that the programming codes have to entered with the phone connected directly to the call blocker. In our case, that would be the cordless phone. I can check our Ooma call log online and see the junk calls being disconnected after 2-3 seconds that we never know about!
I could not make it work on my Comcast phone system despite some easily accessible help from their customer service. They did tell me that there is an updated model (screen) coming out soon. The return and refund were handled quite well
One of the best purchases I've ever made. My local phone had filled up with 50 blocked numbers and the calls still kept coming, so I got the CPR Call Blocker and wiped out the rest with it's massive number memory. Now I pick up the phone once in awhile to make sure it's still working!!! All of those annoying calls are gone!!! I've got my life back!!! THANKS a million CPR Call Blocker - this is a MUST HAVE!!!
Not many instructions came with the unit, but it did not need many instructions to set up and use. I did have a minor problem with the device when I first installed it on my ATT phone like the instructions suggested (plug phone line into unit and then into the phone. For some reason this install caused the phone to ring differently when a call came in and it was causing the two other phone extensions to not ring making it hard to hear the phone ring. I then switched the install to have one phone line going to the unit and one going to the phone (using the dual phone line jack that came with the unit) and it fixed the problem.
I've been using the CPR Call Blocker for about a month and, so far, very pleased with the performance. I have several phones in the house and the phone will ring just once before blocking the calls which are programmed into the machine. I like the fact that it is powered by the phone line. As for delivery of the device via U.S. Mail, it came packaged in a box wrapped in bubble wrap within a medium sized brown envelope. I was pleasantly surprised to see how small this device really is.
Easy installation--works really well.I expected some numbers to get through anyway but so far that has not happened.When the phone rings just once it is very satisfying.
So far this blocker seems to work, but it's hard to tell - no way I found to count how many or which calls were blocked. Also, I found no way to see a list of calls presumably being blocked. This would have been a very useful feature! Instructions OK but not well organized. (What's most useful is not prominent and a bit buried.) Clumsy if you have more than one phone plugged into one line; one rings, then another, etc. But not bad given low price of this item and ease of "installation."
We noticed fewer spam phone calls as soon as I installed the Call Blocker. Installation was easy - took about a minute. It's easy to block calls when they're ringing, during a call, or after you hang up. The manual is slim but it covers everything you need to know. The Call Blocker arrived about two weeks ahead of the scheduled delivery date - we're in the US. We're very happy with our purchase.
I bought this product for my father. He his older and not comfortable or familiar with electronics. This product is simple to install, pre-program and update phone numbers to be blocked. It works flawlessly and he is quite pleased. We had one small issue on set-up that was easily sorted. The unit has line 1 and line 2 choices. When he installed it using line 1, it did not power up or work. He called me, (annoyed), to complain. I read the manual on-line and it stated if the blocker did not work on line 1, switch the phone lines to the line 2 jacks. He did, and it worked perfectly. The manual provides this troubleshooting information, but it is in a rather non-descript area in the manual. I would suggest moving this particular tip to a more prominent place in the manual. This miniscule criticism aside, this blocker works perfectly, is easy to set-up, easy to update. I am completely satisfied.
This device is the best. I used Line 2 and telephone 2 to install it. Others may have to try line 1 and telephone 1 Basically, hooks up as an answering machine would. I use voice mail for messages. It comes pre-programmed with lots of offending numbers- and this alone almost eliminates the scam, sales, computer-generated and other calls. Individual numbers can be easily blocked. For several years, I had looked for a solution but did not know what to order. I had to try something and this was not a disappointment. Family and friends have no problem getting through.
This product works great. No longer receive nuisance/pest/robo calls to my number day and night. Worth every penny. Thank you.
Works like a charm. Now I answer all calls and when I hear that it is a telemarketer, I immediately press the "block now" button. Now when I receive a blocked call, the phon rings once very briefly and hangs up on the caller. Great product, just what I wanted. Terry
I shopped many items and the prices seems to vary all the way to $200. The price on this at around $60 was very reasonable. It is a small unit and easily attaches to the phone. Instructions are very clear and the manufacture is very responsive with questions. After having it for about 4 weeks. The success rate is above 95%. It was like an instant relief. You have numerous ways of programing. You can input numbers. Calls that do not show numbers , such as "unknown," or "private", can also be programed by inputing the "last call". Some Technical notes: 1. All programming is done in line two. 2. Sometimes the phone system will not work properly on picking up calls. The instructions will show a slightly different way of attachment which is easy to follow. I had that problem and then took both lines and plugged them into line #1 . The answer system works fine. But to program , I have to plug both lines back to line #2. And then do the programing and shift the plugs back to line #1. It only takes a second and really is not a problem. 3. You will need caller ID. I had logged my calls so I knew what many of the numbers were and was able to input them right at the beginning. 4. I have not had any complaints on getting through from my friends. So the system is working fine. Again, the product is highly effective. Easy to use. I got instant results. I got my life back. I highly recommend this product .
This device works! I am finally in charge of who calls me and intrudes where they have no business. It is satisfying to hear the phone ring once and know the number has been blocked and that caller won't be bothering me again. I have told many friends about it. It is very easy to use. The only negative is the instruction sheet which has very small print, some of which is blue and hard to see. I enlarged the instructions and hand wrote the blue words for ease of use. This device is worth the money for peace and quiet from scammers and telemarketers.
The jury is still out on this one. The instructions leave a lot to be desired. I really can't tell if it's blocking calls or not. I said I was going to write down the numbers that I'm attempting to block, but that seems like a bit of work.
There were no problems setting up this device nor any difficulties figuring out how to operate it. Thus far - less than a month of use - only our "wanted" calls are getting through after manually inserting scores of "unwanted" numbers chronicled over the past several months. Works fine for us. For what it is worth, our landlline phone company is Charter Communications (St. Louis, MO area) and the telephone that CPR is connected to is Uniden 6.0. Have found that our phone rings one "extra" time for the caller ID to register, but we can live with that. The only negative to report has nothing to do with the device but the inordinate amount of time from ordering to delivery. Having been an amazon.com customer pretty much from the "get go," I have never waited so long for a product to arrive - ordered on Sep 23rd arrived on Nov 12th. Nevertheless, the organizational people with whom I communicated came across as sincere and helpful. Bottom line - we are satisfied, but seriously doubt we'll ever again commit to such a long shipping time.
I may never keep ahead of the onslaught of telemarketers short of changing my phone number of 40 yrs but otherwise it's about the only solution you'll find. 'Do Not Call' registry is a joke even if you take into account the 'exemptions'. My first choice was to buy a Panasonic phone that comes with a call block feature but after several orders from Amazon retailers not sending me what I ordered I bought the CPR call blocker. Good thing I did because the 30 call limit on the Panasonic wouldn't make it through the month. Sometimes you have to act fast because the first 2 rings don't come over the phone you have it plugged into until the caller ID is identified although other phones will ring normal so if it's the usual 4 ring caller you only have seconds to hit the button but you can easily block the number by entering it manually for the next time. It will ring once when a blocked number tries to call back but at least you'll know it's working.
This has got to be one of the best purchases we've ever made. We got the call blocker in September & the nuisance calls have almost stopped. Even though we've been on the Do Not Call list for a few years, for some reason this year the unwanted calls from different companies seemed endless. Not a problem anymore, just press a button & problem solved. My husband had no difficulties setting it up to the Panasonic cordless phone Model KX-TGA410. We live in California, this was shipped from England and we received it within a week!
Works very well. If you are present when an annoying call comes, just press a button and that is the end of that number for good. Setup was easy. Supplied are detailed instructions when annoying telemarketer calls come when you are not present and wish to add the number to your blocked call list. Shipping was good. I received the unit within a week from Great Britain. Can't complain about anything with regard to the call blocker. Everyone should have one.
I could not wait to get my hands on this. Relief at last! My phone system could only block 30 numbers, and had run out of room for all the annoying telemarketer calls I get. Calls all day and night, every day, and my phone has talking caller ID, so it was getting out of hand. I immediately programmed the most recent numbers that had been calling every day, and the calls went away. For any new calls, all I have to do is hit the block button and those are automatically stored. This came with two options for connecting, and I was delighted that I could use the splitter for my fax machine instead, as the one I had has gone missing since I've been remodeling. I have Vonage, so the splitter goes into the modem, with one phone line connected first to the call blocker and from there to the master base phone set, and the other phone line goes directly to my printer/fax machine. This stores 1200 numbers, so you should never run out. You can block entire area codes. You can remove numbers you have previously blocked if, say, you make up with your boyfriend (or mistakenly block a number). You can block all calls from "private" or "unknown" numbers too. And after reading the instructions more thoroughly, I see you can also block the last number that called you if you happen to not get to the phone blocker in time to push the button. For someone who has listed all their numbers on the do not call list yet still receive countless intrusive, unwanted and annoying calls from telemarketers, political parties, charities, colleges, etc., this will give you peace and quiet at last! I wish I had known this technology existed sooner. It is well worth the price for peace and quiet. It ships from the UK, so it can take awhile to receive it, though I received mine in much less time than the estimated delivery window. This would make a great gift for anyone you know who is hounded by intrusive telemarketer calls.
Though both my wife and I have cellular phones, we have a primary landline through AT&T. Our home is fairly large so in addition to the main hard wired telephone (for use during a power outage) we have an additional 8 wireless phones along with an answering machine. We have had the same landline telephone number for a bit over 20 years. The Federal Do Not Call Registry was great while it lasted. But today it appears to be a waste of time even bothering to list your number. Like many others, we were constantly annoyed by the nuisance telemarketers, requests for political and "charitable" contributions, surveys, polls, etc. On average we would receive 4 to 6 nuisance calls a day. So when the phone rang, either my wife or I would have to put on the reading glasses to view the caller ID to decide whether to answer the phone or not. The really annoying part was to stop what we were doing (like exercising, cooking, working on a home project, not having our reading glasses handy, etc.) My 91 year old mother that lives out of state usually calls 2 or 3 times a day. She gets a little lonely living by herself. I enjoy her calls. My wife is close to her sister whom also lives out of state along with daily calls from my wife's or my friends. So simply letting incoming calls go to voicemail is not a practical option and neither of us care to walk around the house with our cell phones glued to our hips. If we recognized the phone number as an out of state telemarketer, we would let the call go to the answering machine. But that got to be annoying to listen to the phone ringing 4 times and hearing the prerecorded answer message played out only to be followed by silence after which the machine would answer back with a "Thank You For Your Call". Day after day we had these nuisance calls. We tried answering some calls, listening to the long prerecorded message which might end with a "Touch 5 to have your number removed from our list". That didn't work, just a waste of time as our number never got removed and the calls continued unabated. We tried answering some calls and hit 1 to speak to a live representative. As soon as we asked to have our number removed, the live representative would hang up and we continued to receive calls from the same number or company day after day. So I tried many of the suggestions I found on the internet that would supposedly help reduce the volume of calls. For instance answer the phone and hit the star and pound keys followed by a hang up hoping that would fool the automatic dialers into thinking it had phoned a computer or Fax machine and bounce our number out of the system. That didn't work. I tried the "hit 1 for a live representative" then when someone answered, I put them on hold. That didn't work. Heck, sometimes if we tried to hit 1, we would get disconnected since a representative wasn't available. The final insult was when my wife asked the live representative "how can we get removed from your call list?" and the person replied "Have your phone line disconnected". So I searched the internet and found this device. I read the reviews and ordered it. Since the unit is shipped from the UK, I spent the extra few dollars for expedited delivery. I received it within a week of placing the order. The unit I received is the V.106 International model. Connecting it was a breeze. Though a little tricky at first, I used the provided preset blocking codes to block all "out of area/international calls", all "IP dialing systems which include Skype and other overseas nuisance call centers", all type "0 or single digit spoof calls", and all "private/unknown callers". Then I went through the past caller list stored in the phone memory and blocked all of those previous nusance calls. We saw an immedite drop in the number of nuisance calls getting through. As new ones came in we would simply cut them off and bock the number by hitting the button located on the top of the device. Or, if we weren't close to it, we would let the call go to the answering machine then use the "block last call" or review the caller ID list and block the number that way. In the few weeks we have had it, those nuisance calls have dropped dramatically. This device works great. It seems that once this device disconnects the call so quickly our number gets removed from their list. I can suspect that numerous telemarketing companies might use a common computerised database so when one telemarketer has their call immediately disonnected, our number then gets removed from a common or shared database. After only a couple weeks, we seemed to have been dropped by many telemarketers to the point we don't even hear one "single ringer" over a day or multple days. We are not quite to the point of not looking at the caller ID before answering but I expect it won't be much longer until we don't bother to reach for those reading glasses. A couple things worth noting. When a call comes in from a blocked number, the phone does ring once while the caller ID is beng sent to the device. The device then immediately disconnects the incoming call. The call is disconnected so quickly after the device receives the caller ID, the incoming call is never logged by our phones. Personally, we like to hear that single ring of the phone. It tells us the device has just blocked a nuisance call and we can chuckle about it knowing the device is giving us our money's worth. If you are tired and frustrated by nuisance calls, this is the device you want!!! I would give it 10 stars if I could:)
good product.It is a good tool to block solicitation and unwanted calls and specially during local and national election's time.
As soon as I installed CPR Blocker the calls decreased dramatically, after blocking the few calls that got through were blocked with a push of the "Call Blocker" button. Great product, really works, will recomend to my friends.
I love it -- as it works with a VOIP Vonage system. It stopped the crazy calls in the night that I would answer and no one would be there.
It does a superb job of blocking unwanted phone calls. I had a few problems at the start, but after chatting with Tech Support (Matthew). It is ruthless on killing the calls that have bothered our household for months. You will need to program the bothersome calls (very easy to do) and then sit back and read a book, watch your favorite T.V show, or whatever. Many numbers are preprogrammed into the call blocker, but not all. So there is plenty of room to add your own. It works great.
Easy setup. Works like a charm. I take great satisfaction pressing the block call button! Did I mention it works and how easy it was to set-up!
Works as advertised with easy to set up instructions for our DECT base and home wireless telephones. No problems so far.
Excellent product. Got rid of all my nuisance calls. Once you block a call, not even one ring gets through. Recommended to other friends, easy installation.
Shipment came pretty quick since this is a UK product. Did experience an issue when trying to use the last number call block. When this command was used, the call blocker blocked all calls. I had to reset to factory default setting for the CPR to work. I currently have to enter each number I want to block unless I can get to the call block button, which so far has been infrequent. It's still to early in the setup to determine how effective it will be. It does seem that I have been able to stop 866 and 877 calls, which is a plus.
Although I was skeptical at first I decided to take the dive and purchased this product. First my issue, constant callers from marketers and bill collectors looking for my son who racked up bills with them and who no longer lives with us. Every single day we can 5-15 calls from scammers, spoofed numbers, cell phones, unknowns you name it we get it. I initially tried using the number blocking feature of my cordless phone but it had a limitation of 20 numbers, always rang at least once before silencing and since scammers change their number all the time that became difficult to manage. The national do not call registry is useless, answering the phone and threatening legal action is useless as well. So here comes this product. It looked a little flimsy and it was shipped from overseas but that should not bother anyone. Easy to set-up, just make sure you connect it correctly and READ the instruction booklet it came with. So here is how it is suppose to work. A call comes in, you press the block button and it blocks the caller the next time they call. Well I was unable to confirm that the pressing of the button actually works or not since I did not get a confirmation light from the LED's and the instructions were very vague on that feature. So I ignored the button feature and decided to use the program feature. Fairly simple, you pick up your phone press **7# and you hear a beep then enter the recent number you want to block and press the # key again and you get another beep that confirms that number is now blocked. Guess what.... IT WORKS like a charm. After a few annoying calls I simply enter the numbers I want to block and BAM, they are blocked. its kind of funny to see these scammers try to spoof their numbers and change them but you will get pretty good at blocking "area codes" or just out of area numbers. Be aware that it is important that this device be connected before any phones. Meaning you CAN NOT just plug it into an extension and expect it to work. If you have a prewired house and still using old phone service with extensions in each room you are going to have to change the wiring a bit. If you have cordless phones which most of use in the modern world have, this device MUST be connected before you main cordless unit.
If you are constantly bombarded with calls from telemarketers, this is the answer. you will not be disappointed. easy to set up. good instructions
I purchased the Call Blocker a couple of weeks ago, and it works as advertised. I have blocked so many unwanted calls and now I can take a nap in the afternoons without being interrupted with unwanted calls. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone who wants to get back their peace and quiet.
tHE UNIT IS REALLY WORKING WELL. THE HOUSE IS VERY QUIET SINCE THE TELEPHONE HAS ALMOST STOPPED RINGING. WE'RE SORRY WE DIDN'T GET ON SOONER - THIS IS THE CALL BLOCKER TO HAVE ON YOUR TELEPHONE LINE.
It worked like they said it would. Blocks the nuisance calls. Surprisingly quiet now. Will hold 1200 numbers. Comes from overseas.
This product has made a difference in the quality of my life....literally! I was only mildly optimistic that it would work as advertised when I ordered it and have been totally surprised, in a pleasant way. I work from home. My VoIP business line wasn't an issue, but my home phone would ring all day long while I was trying to do my work. One gross violator, Heartsavers, called me 6 times in one day!! (Yes, I'm on the "Do Not Call" list which everyone ignores). The CPR call blocker has reduced these annoying calls by at least 90% And the few that do get through, never get through again. I can't tell you what a great feeling of power it is to push that "block it" button and know you've done away with the caller once and for all! Set up was easy. Connected through "TEL 1", it didn't work. Re-connected through "TEL 2" and I was up and running in under 5 minutes.
Got fed up with waiting for Telephone preference to kick in so bought this to try and stop the constant stream of cold calling. After setting it up, it didn't work on first plug in but did when I changed it over, set a code using the handset and silence, you still get an indication that someone attempted to call but your handset doesn't ring, silence is Golden and all for 40.00 wish i'd bought this months ago.
I've got Verizon Digital Voice which only allows you to block a remarkably small number of numbers. This call blocker is perfect as it allows you to block by area code as well as by indivudual number--up to 1200. The only issue I had is with Verizon Digital I had to hook the unit up in parallel. The included phone splitter jack was faulty and I had to buy a new one to get the unit to work properly. Nice to watch the telemarketer calls flash on my TV screen for one ring and then silence.
This device is wonderful. Even though we have been on the national do not call registry for many years, we are still plagued with nuisance calls every day. Our voice provider - Comcast - has provisions for blocking calls, but from only 12 numbers, which does not begin to stem the tide of junk calls coming in. Our telephone system - a Panasonic KX-TG6641 - allows us to block an additional 30 numbers, which is also insufficient. CPR Call Blocker allows you to block 1200 individual phone numbers, as well as entire exchanges - we have now blocked all 800, 900, 866 and 877 callers. It also allows you to block "Anonymous" and "Out of Area" callers, which we have also done. In addition, you can block a current caller just by clicking the "Block Now" button on the unit while the call is in progress. It is extraordinarily easy to set up and program, and customer service is very responsive. Our phone is getting quieter by the day - 5 stars to CPR Call Blocker!
This thing works great an will eliminate anything you want including blocked and private numbers. Make sure to read the directions for the private and blocked calls.
I was fed up with all the telemarketing calls we were getting, many repeatedly - some everyday with the same line of bull. I ordered the CPR and installed it immediately; the delivery and product were just as described. I have blocked calls when they came in as well as entering them from the phone keypad, and none have recurred. I would estimate the reduction in telemarketing calls has been substantial. I am, of course, delighted.
I love the call blocker. After trying another brand, which I found too hard to program, I purchased this blocker. It is easy to setup and equally easy to block the numbers. Definitely recommend this item.
Sorry for the long review. I received the call blocker and installation was simple. This is when the problems began. I have Caller ID service from AT&T. I tried 3 different set ups and tested them by calling with my cell phone. 1) I installed the Call blocker using the included instructions: Line Cable to Line 2 and the small black cable from TEL 2 to the telephone. When I picked up the telephone, I got a dial tone and the two red lights on the Call Blocker illuminated. However, on all received calls, the telephone displayed the incoming number and Unknown Name. 2) I moved the connections to Line 1 and Tel 1. When I picked up the telephone, I got a dial tone and the red lights on the Call Blocker did not illuminate. When a call was received, the telephone displayed the incoming number and the caller's name. Pressing the Block Now button did not work. 3) I tried the parallel set up using a splitter. When I picked up the telephone, I got a dial tone and the two red lights on the Call Blocker illuminated. When a call was received, the telephone displayed the incoming number and caller name. Pressing the Block Now button worked and the incoming call was terminated. This introduced a new problem. I had used my cell phone to test the set up and now I cannot unblock the number. Following the instructions, I picked up the phone, got a dial tone and input **6#. As soon as I pressed the # key, there is no 'BEEP' and I got a message from the service provider stating the call cannot be connected as dialed. 4) Then a new problem- I got a dial tone and pressed **. This is as far as I could get. When I pressed the second *, the red lights blinked and I heard a loud click. Then I heard a ringing in the ear piece and a message from the service provider stating the call cannot be connected as dialed. Even if I quickly dial **6#, there is no beep after the #, just the ringing in the ear piece and a message from the service provider. I borrowed two telephones and had the same results. Then I had another problem. When I picked up the receiver on either of these telephones, the red lights on the call blocker started blinking and I got a clicking noise. Even with this, I can still make/receive calls. I still cannot use any of the programming codes. I contacted customer support and they had me try various troubleshooting steps. The conclusion was the call blocker was faulty and I should return it for a replacement. The 30 day money back period would restart when I received the replacement. The replacement arrived and worked. Callers were identified and I could block calls. However, I used my cell phone number to test the set up and now I cannot unblock the number. I cannot use any of the programming codes. Following the directions in the FAQ, I moved the line cable from LINE2 to LINE1. Nothing happened. There is no dial tone, no red lights and entering any programming code does nothing. I took the call blocker to a friend's house and had the same problems. My conclusion is the call blocker is not compatible with AT&T. Since it does block calls, I will keep it. Customer support was outstanding. My thanks to Matthew and Kevin.
I'm finally able to block those daily, or more, spam calls that use different numbers from one area code. I blocked the whole area code. Easy! Finally, silence. And annoying calls from these boiler-plate outfits are gone. Easy to set up (takes less than a minute) and to program using codes on your phone. Comes with instruction manual (also available online) and is simple to use. Phone doesn't even ring for blocked calls. They are completely blocked. Excellent unit and well-worth the price. I couldn't be more pleased.
Item arrived much sooner than expected. I enjoy the feature that allows the blocking of entire area codes. If I don't know anyone in that area code I simply block it. Blocked caller phone numbers still show up on my phone as missed calls if I need to check them.
It is simple and easy to operate it. There is no manual that makes no sense like its competitor. Highly recommended
I wanted a product that you didn't have to be a rocket scientist to hook up. I ordered callblocker and received it in about a week from the UK. I had one minor glitch hooking up (my fault) and when I e-mailed customer support, I got an answer the very same day. It works great and I don't have to listen to the phone ringing twenty times per evening. I was getting calls as early as 7:00 am and after 9:00 pm. How annoying. Having peaceful evenings now. I am glad I bought this product. Sharon in Ohio USA
Great product and easy to set up and use. A window showing the number blocked would be an asset but otherwise I recommend the product.
I received the blocker in a timely manner and it seems to work fine to block calls. The main issue that I have with the blocker is that, I can not hear the phone ring any more. My regular calls are being blocked too. I emailed the company and have not received a response on how to rectify this problem.
CPR Call Blocker works great. Easy to enter numbers and blocks unwanted callers, and it really works. All you have to do is note the number of the unwanted caller and then enter it via one of a few simple options (i.e., "block last call", "enter the number yourself" or some others). From then on, no more calls from that number. When any call comes in, we hear one phone ring quietly and then if blocked, nothing and if not blocked the call comes through. Only negative is blocked calls show up once in the "missed call" log on our phone while calls through come through show up twice in the "missed call". Since we clear this log out regularly, this is not a problem compared to how well the CPR Call Blocker works. Now the only calls we get from unwanted callers are the first time they try or if they are calling from a new number. Once I enter them in the unit, no more calls. Well worth the price!
I purchased out of sheer desperation, due to the amount of telemarketer calls I got. I don't get them anymore!! THANK YOU! I highly recommend this product!!!
This item works exactly as advertised. Calls can be blocked mid-call, or numbers to be blocked can be entered. One issue arose with my phone setup, which is Comcast VOIP. Numbers to be blocked could only be manually entered when the blocker input was moved from line 2 to line 1. Then, for normal operation, the input had to be returned to line 2.
Works great with (Panasonic 6.0 plus with call blocking). Was getting 17 telemarketing calls per day, now 0 - 1. July 2015 update. Must be outdated. Not working anymore. Calls getting through.
Great Product.Peace at last.No unwanted calls.No repeat offenders.Easy to operate. Convenient "Block now" button for new pests. I am totally satisfied with the results.
The product seems to be working as advertised. I am useing this in the US, and some of the nomenclature in the instructions is geared toward the EU or Great Britain. I sent an email question, and never got a response, otherwise I would rate a 5. Update 10/13 I received a response for my email. I would now rate this a 5,
I purchased the call blocker for my father in law who was scammed out of all his money. The scammer would not stop calling him not once but several times a day and from different numbers. With limited sight my father in law was unable to read the caller ID so he would answer every phone call. I purchased this unit about a month ago and it has done everything it was advertised it would do. I plugged it in, added the phone numbers the caller was calling from and we have not had one harassing call from the scammers since. Adding the additional numbers was easy and no hassle. If you have elderly parents or harassing calls yourself, I would recommend the call blocker.
As most people know, the Do Not Call Registry has so many exceptions (surveys, charities, supposed credit card companies, etc.) that it's useless for blocking spam. If you ever put your phone number on any online order, you've given the company permission it to phone number aggregators; I accidentally did this and started getting at least four spam calls a day. So I bought this blocker and I'm THRILLED with it. When my caller ID shows an unknown or spam ID, I click the button and the number is permanently blocked: it never rings again. (And if you have any problems setting up your phone--as I did--the company responds to e-mailed questions within 24 hours.)
It's priced well, easy to install and use, but not totally compatible with a phone connection from Cox Communication. The only method for this unit to accept commands, like to clear a previously disabled number, is via a code which starts with 2 asterisks ('**'). The Cox phone system has a command menu also starting with *, so Cox intercepts the command, which will now fail with an error. If issuing commands will never be a necessity, this is a great tool to have.
everyone should have one of these. block salea calls from any where.//// //////// ////////// ///////// ///////// ///////// / ////////////// / / this is stupid
It simply works as designed. My service is Centurylink (internet) with the MagicJack +. This setup works. I do enjoy having my phone for my convince again. Try it You will like it.
This Call blocker is a must have to block out all those unwanted calls that you dont want. Just a simple push of the button and the call is blocked.
After months of using this V108 C P R blocker I have to tell you I get MORE scammer calls then I ever got I do not recommend this call blocker,Now that it is time for all the politics the calls never stop day and night.
So far so good
Great product, easy to set up and great tech support. One number kept getting through but was advised to enter 3 ways. Country code of 1, 01 and 001 preceding the number. That seems to work. Early days but so far so good!
This is great item and I would recommend this little box to anyone that hates unwanted calls. There are options to block all PRIVATE calls, UNAVAILABLE calls or you have the option to block individual calls. I wish I had this item years ago!!!
Love this little box. One of my best purchases.
Since receiving the call blocker, I have not received any robo calls very pleased with my purchase.
Utterly outstanding product that has completely eliminated the robocalls that were degrading my quality of life. I used to get two calls a day from the (by me) hated "Card Services". I haven't gotten one during the several months that I've had this product. It is easy to use: it comes programmed with various categories of calls, including a list of particularly delinquant callers, but you can add others by entering a code (provided in the accompanying booklet) on your phone's keypad. For instance if you want to hanceforth block a call you've just received, you just enter **2#*2#. For "Withheld/Private Callers, enter **7#7*#. If you change your mind about a blocking a particular number or category the same booklet gives omparable codes for doing this -- all entered via your phone's keypad (the blocker does not have nor need its own keypad. Installation is a breeze: just insert between your phone and the wall jack. I have Verizon FiOS and the device works fine. It does not have a number display, but I don't need it as my phone already has one.
A significant reduction in nuisance calls; what a welcome relief.
It started working right away. Had to use the alternate wiring and all of the parts needed were supplied. So fun to use. It has stoppe the junk calls. We love to get new calls to block but we just are hardly getting those calls any more.
I was more than frustrated with the numerous telemarketing and cold calls that I was receiving so when I discovered the CPR Call Blocker I was curious. The reviews were great yet I was a bit leery. Since I had a credit with Amazon I went ahead and purchased it and within 2 days my phone line went basically dead of all the cold calls and telemarketing calls. Now, if one comes in and the codes are recognized as spam my line rings once then hangs up and I am not bothered. It is amazing. Believe me I am more than pleased with the Call Blocker. I highly recommend it. Simple to set up and then relax, no more "you have won a free trip to the Bahamas...", etc.
So far it works very well. Because I have my telephone service through my cable TV/internet carrier, I had to figure out how the setup instructions applied (instead of the telephone connection being at the wall, it is at the modem).. If I find a new number on my caller ID, it is easy to enter that number in the unit for future blocking, If a call comes in while I'm there I simply push the button on the unit to block and enter it in the unit. Depending on how far the unit will be placed from the wall outlet or modem, additional cords may be necessary for the setup. Well worth the price.
Great block caller
I don't believe I expected what I got from the CPR call blocker. The first thing I did was program the numbers into it for the "unknown, unavailable, (0), etc. numbers that call all the time three or four time a day. Then I hooked it to my line and .........there was nothing! I picked up the receiver to make sure I had a dial tone....there was and then there was blissful silence! In the beginning I got a few of the out of area numbers that don't answer and I pushed that Magic button.......never heard from them again! I don't want to say this but if I knew what this thing was capable of before I bought it.....shhhhhhh..I would've paid double for it! I highly recommend this CPR Call Blocker V108!
This is probably one of the best purchases I have made. If a spammer calls, I can add number and will only get one ring when they try to call back. It has really helped with bringing some peace in the house!!!
Great! unfortunately I may have to use it frequently
Sick of telemarketers, political and charitable solicitations, requests to lower your credit percentage or energy costs and the list goes on and on and if indeed you are really sick of these harassing calls, you really need to own this Call Blocker. Even if you are on the U. S. Government's "No Call" list, your Congress exempted themselves as well as charity organizations and this program is totally useless. After receiving the Call Blocker my unwanted calls have decreased considerably. The device is very user friendly and once owned you will wonder why you never had one before. When compared to other makers of Call Blockers you will find that even though they might be less expensive you also will have reduced number capacity. I would recommend the Call Blocker to anyone who is daily harassed by unwanted telephone calls.
Easy to set up and seems to be doing what I needed it to do. Glad I found it.
So far, so good. The instruction manual sucks (too small print, not very plain, not available online), but after playing with it a week or so it seems to be doing it's job (until the scammers change/get new numbers). And there is also the never ending election cycle with all them liars with their bullcrap recordings exempt from their own rules (what a surprise) harassing everyone now. This blocker will provide some peace.
Bought this for my elderly parents who were being barraged by sales calls during dinner - after showing my mother how to use it, my parents have had far fewer sales calls interrupting them.
Works as advertised. Be diligent to follow instructions on how to use. Easy instructions to follow. It's nice to have quiet again after receiving telemarketing calls and odd call back numbers such as 3456 and area codes that began with a "1" and the caller ID spammers who have a "user name" showing as a legit company or person, but are still spammers and telemarketers nonetheless. I can hear myself think again since I've been using this!
This one can: 1. Block the incoming scam phone by click the button or by input the phone number later. 2. Block all "Unknown", "Private", "Unavailable" or "Out of area" phones. 3. Block the whole area code, or any numbers starting from the beginning. Such 1-234-56#-####, or 1-234-567-####, or 1-234-567-8###. 4. Delete the block number. 5. Reset the device. The only problems I have are: 1. The operational manual is too simple and not very clear. 2, The input phone display will show twice. (not a big deal)
Finally can get rid those unwanted calls.
This is really a great product. So far so good!
Works as described.
I love my CPR Call Blocker. I was satisfied with it but I bought another from a competitor. That was a mistake. I found ithe competitor's unit very complicated to use and not at as versatile as my CPR unit. I put it back into it's box for storrage. I went from getting 10 to 15 unwanted calls a day to getting one every few days. What a releif to have the unwanted calls disappear. I like the unit so much I bnought a second one to install at my vacation home. I'd recommend, without reservation, this unit to anyone seeking relief from the rentless telemarketer and scam calls. I wish I'd purchased it years ago.
Have used it for 10 days and so far it seems to work great !
My blocker has been in use for the past ten days and so far I have not gotten any 800 series calls. It has cut my incoming calls by about 80%. What a relief. Great product.
Thanks and big raves to the maker of this product for giving me back ownership of my landline. My phone rang dozens of times a week with countless different numbers, the robo-caller almost always beginning with, "Hi, this is Rachel from cardholder's services." I could block only ten numbers with my service provider, and as soon as I would block one number, this scam outfit would call from another. Ten blocked numbers was not sufficient to deal with this problem and registering with the national Do Not Call Registry did absolutely nothing to abate the number of calls. When I could ever get a human on the line, I'd instruct them to take my number off their call list and each time the human would hang up without agreeing to follow FCC guidelines. This little device was easy to install and it did what the law couldn't: Within one day, the nuisance calls were silenced. Calls from my family have come through, so I'm delighted with a product doing exactly what it claims to do.
I have 2 of thes and they will block any number area code whatever you want to block it will block it I gave this a 5 star because they don't have 10 stars you can spend a little more and get the new one are you Castillo listening is this one like a said I have two on in one room one in the other room hit blocks every call and it will not if phone will not ring or show the number over again thanks that's it's wlj fla
I wanted something to stop calls from solicitors. The opt out service offered by the government is useless because of all the exceptions allowed. This device is quite different. Shortly after installing it we received a call from a survey line that is never ending. I followed the simple instructions that came with the device and have not been bothered since. As other call come in from other solicitors I have used the device to stop the calls. This unit has not failed us once. I will recommend this product to anyone wanting relief from unwanted calls. It works period. If it ever fails, I will order anther immediately.
Works perfectly. After 3 years of calling harassment, it has provided 100% relief. I fully recommend. TEM
This product appears to work well with our Phoenix Century Link land line. We seem to be receiving significantly less solicitor calls since the easy installation (hard to prove a negative, but that's my perception).
It seems to be working. I know some calls are being blocked. Pushing the button is a convenient way to end the call when they just won't take "no" for an answer.
Got it for a week and since then, no more unwanted robocalls. Still receive one or two, but I can either press the "block now" button or enter the number into the block list. A must buy if you have been annoyed by those robocalls all day long.
This product has greatly cut down on the amount of unwanted calls. I was getting several a day and now the phone is almost silent. Highly recommend this product and love that I can choose which calls to block. It also has features to block unknown callers automatically. I won't be without this or a similar product any time soon.
works perfectly arrived promptly
I love this call blocker! It's easy to use and it works great! It's very simple to add numbers to block. Our phones will ring one time and that's it! The caller is disconnected. Goodbye, robocalls and telemarketers!
Finally a call blocker that works !!! Have been looking for a call blocker for years without giving up features. Thanks to the many Amazon reviewers, who document the things that no longer work when you hook up these devices; this one is fully functional. Wanted to give a couple of weeks of use before writing a review. Finally getting some peace and quiet. So quiet, that I had to check the land line with an iPhone to make sure that it was still working It was.. A big plus is the ability to program numbers in at any time, in addition to pressing the button when you are next to the phone. The digital recorder works perfectly, but can only block 30 numbers. What a pleasure getting back control of the phone that you are paying for. We have a poor system. We pay for the phone line, they abuse it, and we have to buy a blocker. Let's see what happens when the political robo-calls start. Now I have some control. This appears to be more useful than those that use a white/black list. Thanks for a well thought -out device, that is easy to setup, and use.
Works great, you might not want to use the feature blocking all unavailable and private numbers because it seems to block all calls. Otherwise it works as advertised.
I am so happy I got this call blocker. I ran out of room on my phone now I can block a 1000 more numbers.
So far it's perfect! Recommending to many!
Best item I have ever bought. I was getting 80 calls a week from people saying they were from microsoft windows and that my computer had been hacked and they wanted me to let them in my pc. Well these people were from India and it was a scam. First of all microsoft windows will never call you unless you have an appointment with them. Since purchasing this product I have only had one call. Thank the good lord because these people were driving me crazy. I would definitely recommend this product.
This call blocker may work fine. However, the problem I had with it was the lack of a screen where I could view the numbers that were blocked. I feared that I had inadvertently blocked an incoming call that I really wanted but did not know what number it was.
My dear husband bought me this for my birthday. What a great gift! While our phone has call blocking ability it was limited to 30 numbers and the phone would ring one time. Now, except for 2 calls that were blocked manually, no calls from telemarketers or those idiots in India who think I am ever going to believe them that they are from Microsoft and they want to help. Sweet Silence
Wow! My phone is finally quiet. Stops all annoying calls except, solicitors that change their caller ID with each call. It is called spoofing. Eventually it will hopefully block them all.
It has worked great so far. It is easy to block calls by using the phone keypad.. You must have caller Id to catch the numbers to block.
The call blocker has worked for at least 85% of the calls, there are a few calls that seem to get through but for the most part, it has done what i expected it to do. I have recommended it to a few of my friends.
So far so good ! no more "don't hang up. seniors pay attention, from India, your computer is broken, This is the IRS, we have been trying to reach you , please call this number and give us the info we need to keep you from going to jail, on and on, but no more. I have received 2 calls so far in 7 days and I put them in the block calls system. We were receiving 7 to 10 calls every week, the calls were coming in Sunday thru Saturday all times, some were live most were recordings I know it will take a month or so to get rid of 99% of those most annoying ones, but already it is working, I should have done this 5 years ago. The National Call Registry is the biggest fraud this country has imposed on us. It is now 2 weeks later and so far not one, let me repeat, not one single annoying call. this call blocker is just what it is called "CALL BOLCKER" A two year old could hook it up.
Works great. Now my phone is blissfully silent!
We have had the CPR Call Blocker for two weeks and our home is now silent from unwanted phone calls. A very good product and the tech service is excellent. We use Verizon DSL with filters hand have connected the Call Blocker to the master phone although we have three extensions.
Great buy ..... has blocked calls almost completely. The phone doesn't even ring. We just don't get the unwanted calls anymore. Would have given it 5 stars, except I am unable to program in specific numbers to block when they get through. Have e-mailed the mfg and have not received an e-mail back helping me. But, it sure beats the phone company where you can only block 10 numbers. Am recommending it to all my friends. Hope it keeps the political nonsense out of our hair, too. That should start up soon!
I can't say enough good about CPR Call Blocker. I used to register complaints with the FTC, I am also on the do not call list but have been harassed by sales people and others. This little gadget works like a charm. All you have to do is hit **#7 then the number you want blocked, followed by # and the call is blocked. I must have at least 50 or so blocked so far. This has given me peace of mind. No longer does the phone ring in the evenings while we are having dinner - unless it's friends or family. If a new sales or spam person does call, I quickly block them.
Although I have caller id, an could recognize most of the unwanted calls, I still had to contend with the phone ringing a lot, until I installed this wonderful device. It's easy to install and program.
I ordered the Call Blocker in early February and had it at my US address by the end of the month, much more quickly than anticipated. I have AT&T service (not Uverse) and have had difficulties programming. I have had a running dialog with two different company reps, mostly via email, working on troubleshooting so that I could get it to work with my line and equipment. After trying a number of suggested strategies, the guys suggested that I set my answering machine in the DECT to two rings, countering their usual instructions. I am cautiously optimistic that doing this with parallel setup (using a splitter at the R-1 jack--not connecting device to phone directly) has allowed me to block one or two callers in the past week (I am slowly deleting blocked numbers from the Panasonic phone system which is likely reducing the success of the Blocker, but my main jack is not convenient for responding quickly to the unwanted callers in time to block them with the "block now" button.) and the rather recent events involving callers obviously hiding phone numbers ceased as quickly as they had surfaced once we hit upon the current setup, which was a huge relief! This first week has definitely been more peaceful, and I think the Call Blocker has to be one major reason. Their customer service has been responsive and impressive. They appear to stand behind their products and they have been consulting with each other on my behalf in efforts to address my programming issues. I do believe their promise that they will help me find a solution that will allow me to finally program the device, a functionality my current setup lacks. Once we address that issue I hope to raise my rating.
We received this device today. Needless to say I dropped everything I was doing to hook this up to our phone. That was very easy. Ahhhhhhhhhh. Peace and quiet in our home finally. Finally. I had nearly forgotten what it was like to go hours without the phone ringing. Peaceful, blissful quiet. I love it. I took the box it came in over to my parents for them to research and to possibly purchase. All I can say is bless you.
Does a pretty decent job of blocking a lot of the spam calls we had been getting. Actually, it took me a good week to realize how quiet our home line had been. The only issue I have (and I have not taken the time to call for alternate instructions) is that we have Time Warner Cable as our provider and the suggested series of programming codes are not working for me at all. I've tried the alternate suggestions in the manual and none of them work when I try to block individual numbers that have gotten through that have proven to be telemarketers. I get get an immediate fast dial tone with the suggested combinations of #'s & *'s. I'm sure it's just an issue with our provider. If I can figure that out and block the list of additional numbers I have that I would like to block, I'll definitely change this to 5 stars. It appears these units were originally manufactured for the UK, not the US. That probably has something to do with the programming issues I am having, but I'm still thankful to have made a big dent in those annoying solicitation calls.
This product requires a Caller ID subscription to operate properly. Unfortunately, that fact was not clear in the advertisement, so I will not be using it.
I was being driven insane by Dish Network. Calls every day sometimes twice a day. That's the main reason I bought this. Since I hooked it up I've only had 1 call from Dish and programmed in the number and not one call since! I haven't even gotten any Card Services calls either! Does everything it said it would. Easy to hook up and easy to program. Works perfectly with WOW (Knology) Cable phones. 5/14/2014 **UPDATE** I love this thing .. I've only had 1 call from somebody I didn't know and it was a wrong number. The quiet is awesome! After clearing out my Caller ID on one of my phones I have not seen anything listed on it other than the wrong number and friends and family so the Call Block obviously stops all calls before they actually make it to your phone. 6-10-2014 **UPDATE** I'm so impressed with this little machine that I ordered one for my Father who was getting up to 20 calls a day from telemarketers! He's 91 years old and had no problem hooking it up and using it. 6-19-2014 **UPDATE** My Father is in peace and quiet heaven! He is so impressed by this little box that my Brother is now going to order one.
This does exactly what i bought it for. To eliminate bothersome computer generated calls! Works perfectly, simple to use. I highly recommend this!
I love this thing so far. Just got it today and already blocked 1 political call, and a 730 number that calls at least 1 time a day 6 days a week. I found humour in the fact that I was just finishing hooking it up when the political call came in and I just hit the button and cut them right off. This thing is small enough that I just put some double sided removable tape on the back and hung it under my wall phone, can hardly tell its there. I have Cinti Bell, and you have to have caller ID. I read that it won't allow calls in unless the number is identified, and I have that feature on my phone from Ma Ball anyway. It does display the calling number 2x on your phone caller ID, but I don't care as long as it works, I can divide by 2. If there are any changes to my opinion I will post them. I took a pic of it, see if Amazon still allows me to download it. May 9th. I have input several numbers by hitting the button and by programming the last 4 days and this is where I'm at on this device.....I LOVE IT! Most times the number will display 2x sometimes 1x, but I read that this is caused by voltage fluctuation in the phone line and is difficult to fix, still a none issue with me. One thing to be aware of that I had to figure out by carrying the phone around. The caller ID will still display the blocked number when they call, but MY phone DOES NOT RING!!! Phone service is Cinti Bell, land line, home phone, Zoom Town Internet with DSL filters. Had this nearly 1 month now, and my wife and I say this is the best money spent. We sit at the kitchen table to talk after a work day, and when we look at the call ID screen, OMG we missed a call. Of course it is a number that had been blocked. Our TV service also has call notification on it that works with caller ID. We have great humour with the fact that it's a blocked number and all is silent, we're older so we take humour where we can find it. I wish I could get one of these for my cell.
I had someone calling me every week about whether a person lived here or not. They would NOT take me off their list no matter whom I spoke to. They called a few weeks ago and right in the middle of my conversation I pushed the little button that says Block Call. Look at the picture it's the small words right at the "top of the cliff." The two red LEDS at the bottom signify the call blocker is ready for you to push the button. It's small like it would fit inside an old timey kitchen match box 5 inches long. cables included. Works with my Verizon wireless $20 a month station thingy for home phone. Right next to it. Now I have Two thingys. My wife says it's starting to look junky like my office. But the calls have quit.
This is simple to set up and 100% effective. It's easy to program new numbers into, as well. The maker has a great website that offers a support forum. Use this device correctly and you'll never have to deal with an unsolicited call again.
This is a great product. The only downside is that it can't be programmed with my Time Warner phone but I can still block the calls directly from the Blocker. That's the only reason for 4 stars.
My 94 year old mother-in-law was receiving scammer calls and we needed to stop them. After reading the reviews on several blockers, we decided that CPR Call Blocker would be the best choice for her situation (we would have to input the numbers). The blocker arrived on time from England, I followed the directions, put in the numbers and no more calls from them. I found that blocking certain areas codes (like 876 - Jamaica) was easiest. Due to her old wiring, the phone will ring once before blocking but she is hard of hearing so that is not a problem - plus we get to see the Caller ID numbers and the calls from 876 have dropped to almost none. She still gets some scammer calls but we are able to block them so each week the number of calls is dropping. In other words - IT WORKS.
We have been using the CPR Blocker a few days now, and I can say it works well. A couple of calls have gotten through, but I #2'd one (blocked from then on), and manually blocked the area code of the other. I especially like the area code blocking feature. That is one powerful feature. This is well worth the money they charge. My phone is VOIP by PhonePower, and the CPR blocker is pluged in directly after the VOIP box.
I have been using a call blocker from a competitor. It worked great - but the maximum number of phone numbers to be blocked was 80 numbers - which was maxed out fast over the past year. The scammers use multiple numbers and change them frequently - so it was easy to fill all 80 slots. THIS CPR call blocker has a maximum of 1000 numbers!!! (Plus 200 per-programmed known offenders.) Hopefully I never reach this limit LOL! CPR call blocker works great on my plain old telephone landline. Very easy to set up. One button to block calls while they are happening. There is no display - but it is real easy to program numbers to be blocked using your telephone as key pad. For example - to block a number just lift handset and hit #7**, wait for beep, then enter the number to be blocked, followed by #, then hangup. Could not be any easier. Also - it gets power from the phone line itself - so no power cord - nice and clean install. Highly recommend. With PRIME shipping - arrived the within two days of placing order. EDIT: I mistyped above - one should be enter "* * 7 # (beep) NUMBER # (beep)" on your phone's dial if you want to manually add a specific number that you want to block - e.g. your spurned ex GF.
We had been blocking the usual nuisance callers using the built in capability of our wireless phone database, but because caller id is delivered on the second ring, it always rang once before it blocked the call. I was finding myself on edge with every call, wondering if it was a 'real' call or not, and this was getting very tiresome. I finally dug in to look for alternatives, and I found this device. We hooked it up in front of the wireless base unit in the kitchen. We were not sure if this would work or not, since there are comments about it having to be installed right where the phone wiring comes in, which is in our basement, and there is an old wired phone in the garage, which would be in the same place in the line as the wireless base unit, split off from the basement access point. We programmed in the list of numbers that we were currently blocking, and made a call from an allowed number to make sure good calls were working, and it has been blissfully calm ever since! If we come home and find multiple daytime calls from a new auto-dialer, we just use the handset to add them to the list! The only thing that would make this even better would be a way to see a log of blocked calls, just to actually see what it is doing, but that is a small issue. I LOVE this thing!!
Love this Call Blocker. See the number, Google the number, second time it rings, Bye-Bye. Like the "*taples" button---EASY. Reccommend it highly.
CPR - unit works as advertised - best thing since sliced bread. blocks unwanted calls with little effort. setup was easy.
Works as advertised. You will probably want to use it in conjunction with a regular caller ID because it only maintains the numbers blocked as opposed to all numbers that have been called. This is a small inconvenience because in return it can hold so many blocked numbers that it is inconceivable that the average consumer would ever reach its limit.
This little black box is ingenious, and does everything it is advertised to do: it blocks phone numbers at the push of a button. We are bombarded with solicitation/telemarketer phone calls, as well as calls from charities too numerous to count, all wanting us to either buy a product or service, or donate money, even though we are on the Do Not Call Registry! My husband did not want to change our phone number since we've had the same number for 20 years or so, so I decided to work around that little impediment by trying out this product. It blocks up to 1,200 numbers, so I think we're covered! If we exceed 1,200 telephone numbers, I don't think I'd need to do much convincing that it will be time to change our number! :-) The only drawback so far, and the reason I gave the item 4 stars and not 5, is because nowhere in the item's listing does it disclose that it and/or the seller is/are located overseas. The shipping charge was reasonable, which led me to assume the item would ship within/from the lower 48. However, the box did take an inordinate amount of time to arrive, which was a bit frustrating given the absence of information concerning the seller's location. Even so, my inquiries concerning shipping and status were answered promptly, but again with no information concerning the reason for the delay, which I now know is the seller's location. So, I think the only criticism I have is to suggest the seller be a little more forthcoming about where it and its product are located and to be up-front in advising prospective U.S. buyers to expect and allow for longer shipping times.
My second one is a gift for parents. A good deal.
The capacity of blocking over 1000 numbers is indeed a powerful "no" to the robocall industry. It was easy to set up and thus far it has worked as advertized. I inadvertently blocked a call I shouldn't have and was happy to see that that could be undone with the proper command. Needless to say, blocking annoying calls gave me great pleasure. BTW, the DNC list is riddled with exceptions, so it lacks the teeth for domestic peace. This makes it possible to block annoying politicians, charities that call over and over again despite being told "no", and scammers w/o fail. The only call it cannot stop is the "unknown caller/unknown number". You'll just have to hang up on them.
We never have had caller ID, but it seems that calls that we have blocked haven't gotten through again. Caller ID might be helpful, but for us not absolutely necessary.
It's easy to enter numbers to be deleted. If you happen to be close to the box when an unwanted number is ringing, you can just press a button for immediate removal. Just what I was looking for. It works on my landline; didn't have much luck with the cordless phone, but I may have been doing something wrong.
It works. I am just not 100% i connected it correct. But it works great. easy a number comes in (888) just hit the button. poof no more.
Super item, wish I'd had one a long, long time ago! Peace and quiet again. Can't go wrong with this item!
wondering just how blocker will do when in a parallel setting does one need to add manually since I have added a fax capable printer as the first item email@example.com
i had trouble prgrmming it but did lots of research and got it working. the codes interfere with comcast VOIP line, but its possible to get it. Its just fusy.
Does a great job of blocking nuisance calls and is very easy to connect and set-up. Hvae already used it to block a robo-caller and a nuisance solicitor.
I ordered this blocker based on the feedback from other users. I can honestly say that it performs as promised. As I have it attached to my main incoming line, I often do not get to it to press the "block call" button so I rely on the feature that allows me to block that last incoming call. Recently, I started getting 6 to 8 calls from a know telemarketing area code. I simply looked up the programming for blocking that area code, and BAM! no more calls have come through. I'm definitely giving this product an A+.
If you have been plagued by robo/telemarketing calls - we were getting six to ten a day, from 7 AM to 9 PM Even if we don't answer, we still have to put up with the phone ringing - (home phones). I have Charter internet phone service with cordless handsets. After several days of research, I bought this. It was easy to install and use. Between blocking the calls and programing in the missed calls we didn't answer - easy to use. Nothing is 100% but it seems to have cut them down each day to just one or two. And the more we block the less we get. Wish I had bought it sooner! The Federal Do-Not-Call list isn't worth a darn and these telemarketers were calling day in and day out. Even when nicely asked to remove us from their list, often hanging up on me while I asked - no effect, they would call again the next day. I was considering getting a new number, but it would just start over. And why should I have to? I developed a real hatred for these telemarketers. Getting nasty had no effect either - we would let our five year old Grandaughter scream into the phone too - nothing ever worked until I tried this. An added benefit is that I no longer feel completely helpless to do something about these horrible calls.
After being driven to distraction by unwanted (and likely scam) calls approximately a year after my local utility was hacked, I finally have blocked most of these calls with this device. I recommend it highly.
a very good product and never knew something like this could work
Great product! No more solicitations......
It was getting crazy, we were getting four or five telemarketing calls a night, we were even starting to get them on Sundays. I plugged in the call blocker, punched in the code to automatically block the "Anonymous" calls, and all of those instantly stopped. Now when a telemarketer gets through on a non-anonymous number, we wait to see what it's about. If it's a telemarketer, you just push the button on the top of the unit and hang up. That's it, you don't have to talk to them, ask them not to call again - that number can't get through anymore. beautiful!!!
product works as described. We were receiving 10-12 robo calls/day. Now we hear just one ring from the robocaller and it disconnects. If someone could create a call blocker without any rings they could make a fortune!
Just received it but it seems to be working well.. Easy setup..
Love this device. The phone has never been quieter.
The CPR All-in-One Call Blocker is the most amazing device I have seen. The instructions are clear and the unit was very easy to hookup. The preprogrammed nuisance call numbers stopped 99% of our unwanted calls. The one or two that got trough were easily blocked with the push of a button. I highly recommend this product for anyone tired of nuisance sales and marketing calls.
Blocking over 90% of unwanted calls with just the push of a button. Sometimes a little hard to reach the button or feel the button otherwise a great device.
Works like a charm, 16 blocked callers and more to come.
just started using it 3 days ago so far i m really happy with the product
It works as advertised. It's also very good at blocking prefixes or narrower group of numbers like all numbers that begin with: "555 456-7". I am very impressed.
After buying 2 other brands and returning them after they failed, I bought the CPR blocker and am happy I did.
So far, it seems to be doing its job very well. I noticed I am not getting the daily sales calls I have been getting 6 times per day for the last 6 months. One or two weird numbers slip past now and then, but for the most part, I am very happy with the product.
I was so annoyed with the robo-callers that call multiple times per day. Their computerized PBX systems can be programmed to use multiple trunk lines, so as soon as I'd block one, they'd simply call back the next day on a different trunk line. The worst part is my phone service will only allow me to block (6) callers. SIX!!! How can this be? Now, with my CPR, I can block (1000) callers plus it's pre-programmed with (200) known offenders. I spent about (15) minutes installing and programming my CPR with the (30) recent caller IDs, that were registered on my home phone's caller ID list, that I wanted to block. After a week of use, I've had to manually add (2) additional caller IDs that got through, otherwise I have been COMPLETLY free of the robo-callers. I took great pleasure in adding these last (2) knowing that they'd never be able to ring my phone ever again from that particular number. I would go so far as to say this is the best $50 I've ever spent at Amazon.
Works as advertised! I called support about a compatibility problem with my phone system and they offered a solution that seems to work. They apparently have a list of alternate codes that can solve problems with different systems. They indicated they would email that list to me, but I have not received it. It would be helpful to have in the event other compatibility problems arise and would obviate the need to contact them. Otherwise, I'm very satisfied with the product and their support services. They have a customer assistance forum that seems to be well-manned and very helpful.
Have only had for a few days but so far it is working great. Has cut down on spam/nuisance calls significantly already (although the election is over for the time being, so that helped as well). Very easy to install on the land line and can block with the device or our land line phone.
Since the only thing the government does well is extorting taxes (Do not call registry is a joke!), I purchased this device. Seems to work well but it is early in the game. Hope I never get another call from 'Racheal' or the company selling the 'free' medical device.
DOES THE JOB NO MORE OF THOSE STUPID POLITICAL IDIOTS LEAVING THEIR WARPED IDEAS ON MY PHONE!!
At first my wife and I couldn't tell if the thing was working or not, Then after a couple weeks we realized that we weren't getting ANY "you know whats" Our regular calls from friends and businesses got through or were able to leave messages....but NO UNWANTED CALLS !!! We have yet to push the blocking button...its taken care of that The instructions are somewhat baffling when it comes to using codes (which we've NEVER had to use) other than that it is simple quick and easy...don't be afraid to hook it up
Still pretty new to me, but I really like the application. If you screw up to badly, all you have to do is reset to factory specs, and start over. Works almost to well.
Seems to be working very well at blocking entered nuisance numbers. However, it is upstream from my answering machine and now my voice messages are only available through the phone provider voice mail message system. There is no visible indication on the answering machine (not cpr) that there is a message. Otherwise it is very satisfactory.
Arrived quickly. Smaller than anticipated. Directions very easy to understand. Installed in 2 minutes. Seems to be working.......sounds of silence. Perfecto!!
I've use this call blocker and it seems to work without any problems. Now because of this device I don't get harassed hardly anymore. Starting to feel a little lonely. LOL.
Using this connection with phone wire to the wireless modem's telephone jack. Working with a Panasonic Bluetooth capable DECT phone. Inputting the codes requires quickness otherwise the "beep" indicating it worked won't happen.
The CPR Call Blocker does it's job quite well. When I first got it, I couldn't program any numbers to it. I was using it on my Xfinity Phone Line, and all I got when I entered the Programming Codes was WAVE OFF (BEE BOO). A few days after I got it, I was sent a NEW Cable Modem from Xfinity that included my Phone line. After I installed that, I could program the CPR Call Blocker without getting any wave off tone. It's a shame we have to purchase a piece of HARDWARE to do what the DO NOT CALL LIST is supposed to do, but that's how it is. Thank goodness we don't get all the Government we pay for!
Really has helped on cutting down on all the phone calls at 8:30AM from marketing companies. Easy to install and use. Just read the little manual that is in the box.
This Call Blocker is working fine for me. I have a landline phone attached to a caller ID and a Cordless phone with 2 handsets. I am using a splitter attaching the two phones and have had calls blocked using the Call Blocker Button for the Landline phone and when using the cordless handsets I use #2 to block the call and they both work. Great Device!
Had only for a few days, but the two call that were driving us crazy , have been taking care of. Kind of missing them now ? Are you kidding me? happy , Happy that is us
The CPR ALL-IN-ONECALL BLOCKER is the best thing you could have to block all unwanted call.Now all the call we get is the one we are looking for.The machine work wonderful.Thank You.
Works great. Meet expectation and great tool for a quite peace of mind
Works exactly as advertised. Effective call blocking. I did need to use the alternate method of programming blocked area codes. Does generate double entries in my TWC call log.
I had a little trouble under standing the instructions. But with the help of the tech. I am fine.
I've had the Call Blocker for about a week now, and it works well. I wish there were some way to avoid having the blocked numbers ring once before being blocked. Oh well, I guess I just have to get used to not jumping up to answer the phone on the first ring. The phone/e-mail support is amazingly good: Kevin has a lot of patience with dummies like me.
Wow. I wasn't expecting such peace and quiet so soon. I have been on the Do Not Call list for years, but the number of nuisance calls (telemarketing, solicitations, unwarranted and unsolicited sham credit monitoring/credit collection calls, etc) have vastly increased to the point where I was being called by one fraudulent 866-company (you can google 'who is calling me') 7 times per day with no message including weekends. I thought it ridiculous to pay the phone company a monthly charge to block numbers so I found this little product. It works a treat. I programmed all the calls (including the obnoxious 866 number-) that had been coming through. You can still see if they are calling you (you have to have caller id for this to work). I noticed that the 866 number stopped after a few more attempts. You can also push the block button as soon as a number comes through on your caller id and it immediately blocks the call. Love it. Thank you CPR call blocker for the renewed silence- pure bliss.
The 'do not call' list is a joke! I'm tired of telemarketers constantly harassing me. I finally decided to give this a shot - what did I have to lose but headaches! I did have some issues connecting the unit, but CPR's customer support is right there for you. They walked me through my issues step by step. The 'block call' button is my new best friend. One comment that I would like to see addressed is a more comprehensive instruction book for the US. Since the phone no longer rings I can now hear the crickets chirping! UPDATED REVIEW: I've been using the blocker for about a month and I am loving not having the phone ringing constantly. I'm blocking new numbers as they come in. I actually enjoy hitting the 'block call' button! It gives me a feeling of power against the telemarketers. Spoof calling numbers are a problem, but stick with it. You'll eventually block all the numbers from an individual call center. You may think the blocker isn't working - but it is. The number being displayed on your caller ID is not the actual number of the source of the call. I so love not getting the 'second and final warning to lower your credit card interest rates' phone calls. If you are on the fence, get off the fence and buy this unit. It works and your sanity is well worth the purchase price.
We just started using this and I definitely see a reduction in telemarketing calls. I am finding that some companies use different numbers and I have to block them more than once. We are getting the hang of it and I'm very happy with my purchase.
Works as advertised, easy set up...
I have only had it on for about a week, but already our annoyance calls have dropped dramatically. Easy to use and so far, so good. Am happy with the product.
So sad the phone company can't do as good a job. Have had it only a short time, but I'm very happy not receiving all the crank annoying calls. No one pays 50 plus a month phone bill to supply a criminals a place to conduct their trade. I am really happy with the product and would recommend it to anyone.
I originally had a couple calls slip through. I called Kevin at CPR and he helped a lot. As more days pass, the less calls I receive. Today, I have received none. I usually have 3 or 4 by now. I think it works. Maybe not 100% but close.
Works as advertised.
Easy to use. Easy instructions. Cannot use with separate answering machine though, so you have to have a telephone with the answering device already included. Other than that, the "beep" you are supposed to hear when entering a number is so low we can barely hear it. I would still recommend this device to anyone who is battling calls they don't want.
I am a senior citizen and resent being called to my phone only to find it is some robo-caller with a recorded message on a subject about which I care not one whit. I NEVER have made a purchase, large or small, that was telephone solicited, and I've punished a few overly persistent politicians with that same logic. I was averaging at least a dozen or more harassing and annoying sales calls, all of which I understand to be illegal, but that small detail gets overlooked somehow. Once I installed my CPR, only one undesired call has slipped past my radar, and is now forever blocked. I read of folks unable to install or get this to work. Come on! I'm 76 years young and I did it all by myself. It's most often just a straight two-wire hookup that puts the blocker between incoming calls and your phone. I understand there are a couple of cable companies for which you have to use a substitute code, but they are clearly explained in that little booklet labeled, "Instructions." If possible, I'd give this one 9 stars!
I just set it up a few days ago, and already I see a decline in robocalls as well as live telemarketers. I have electronics experience, so I knew how to wire it up. I had to be a bit unorthodox compared to the instructions, but I got the gist of what I should do from them. I can't tell you what satisfaction it gives me to hit that button. I haven't tried using the number 2 button on an extension phone, but no matter; I followed the instructions for programming out of area and 0000 numbers and it worked fine on my cable provider phone. It's a pity that we Americans must go to Wales to get a good robocall blocker. Read on for what I had to do to get it connected: I have one wireless extension and two wired extensions. To get them all working I had to re-wire the phones. I took the cable coming from the modem and connected it to the input of the CPR box. I tried to use a splitter for the output of the box, but it didn't work. I don't know why. I had to manually tie the output wire to a parallel connection, one going the main phone that I use most of the time, and the other going to another parallel connection going to all the other extensions. I have not been near an extension when a nuisance call came, so I don't know it that setup will allow me to block from an extension by hitting the number 2 button. I don't see why not however. I will get back to you in a week or so and let you know if all calls are blocked and if an extension will block the call. I would at this time recommend this product.
I received this call blocker yesterday and plugged it in. It requires no separate power other than what it gets from the telephone line. I'm in the U.S. and use AT&T for home phone service (standard, not u-verse). The wall line goes in line 2 and the phone plugs into tel 2. That's it. I have what the user manual calls the ideal setup which is a multi-extension cordless phone base station with 4 handsets. No other phones are plugged in anywhere in the house. I have DSL, so the DSL filter is between the wall and the Call Blocker. I've only received one pesky call since plugging it in and it's a company that makes the caller ID say your own home number is calling. I picked up the phone, listened to 5 seconds of the pitch, pressed the "Block Now" button, and hung up. All of a sudden, I was back in charge of my phone line! I could have saved everyone some time with a three word review - "Silence is Golden". Thanks, CPR Global and God Save the Queen!
Simple to set up. I'm 83 and I didn't have any problems. Ah, sweet peace. No more callers wanting to sell me Viagra or swampland in Florida. No more "you have been selected" calls asking me to participate in a short 45 minute poll and wanting to know if I wear boxers or briefs. Yes, I'm aware that some phones have call blockers built in, I even have one, but they don't match the range, simplicity and capacity of this little gem.
Works as advertised. We have voicemail when we are on a call and the phone still notifies us if there is a message. Caller id works. Everything works normally but our phone is blissfully quiet from solicitors. This is well worth the money.
This is the best invention yet! Had this call blocker box for 2 weeks and its fantastic! I preprogrammed phone numbers in that had been harrassing me for 10 months and they can no longer hound me to death! This box has allowed me the most peace and quiet I've had in months from telemarketers, I absolutely love it and I'm gonna order one for my Mom as well! Fantastic product!
Works great. No more phone calls.
I recently bought this device because the Federal & State Do Not Call Lists/Laws are useless (a true waste of taxpayer money). I would get 3 & 4 nuisance calls a day, 6 days a week. Since I got this device, I have not gotten a single nuisance call. It's been about 10 days now. I had to go back and read the installation instructions as it must be put into your phone cable/wiring system as stated in the installation instruction. Follow installation instructions and it is very easy. Does not hookup as you would think. Read & Follow installation instructions and it stops nuisance calls in their tracks. Highly recommend this device.
This is great! Does exactly as advertised. We are no longer getting the "nuisance" calls. Super easy setup. Ordered on Thursday...got it on Friday. Recommend it very highly!
Have owned the Call Blocker for about 2 weeks now. So far, a DRAMATIC decrease in the number of unwanted calls. What a relief. Owners' manual was not clear on whether the number 1 needed to be placed ahead of Area Codes for numbers programmed into the system. Email communication with the company advised 001 before the AC, and that seems to be working well.
I should have bought this a long time ago. We were getting 15+ calls per day from different places and some with a local number only a couple digits from us and we thought it was a neighbor. The phone company charges $5 per month and only can block 10 numbers max. I plug this in (easy to do) and we have not had a single nuisance call. so it is using the pre-programmed numbers and we have 1000 left to block. Great buy and sorry the "Do Not Call List" is useless and a wast of time. It would make a great gift for anyone with these calls.
After using this device for three weeks, I feel that it is doing a very fine job of eliminating unwanted calls. It is easy to use and has many fine features which are helpful in making decisions as to how to handle certain unwanted calls. I would recommend this item to others and I commend the seller for his accurate description of the many functions of this item.
I am amazed at the way this thing works. I hated how many sales calls we were getting at all times of the day and evening. At first we thought it wouldn't work because I thought we needed two sets because we have two phones. I sent an email asking for a return label. They promptly answered back that I just needed to connect the unit to the primary phone. It worked just as they said it would. They were wonderful at communicating with me. So happy to have our home I undisturbed by unwanted calls.
it seems to be working good. I was not happy about losing call waiting with the device..............
I had and older one that only blocked 100 numbers. It worked GREAT until some other places got my number. I block area codes not numbers. I bought the bigger (1200 blocker) and it works GREAT. In the house the phone never rings when it blocks calls. I have a phone in the garage and the phone rings once then it is blocked by the house. When I am in the garage the phone is always ringing once. this blocker stops a lot of unwanted calls!!!!
We were getting 3-4 calls daily. As soon as we connected to the CPR call blocker. The only calls coming thru were political. One push of the call blocker button and we have never hear from them again. TOTALLY SATISFIED!!
The call blocker arrived in two days. It was easy to set up and use. A few times I thought calls I had blocked were getting through, so I unplugged the call blocker, plugged it back in and re-input the numbers. I don't know that unplugging it made a difference as I might have missed a number when entering them the first time. It seems to be working great!
Unwanted calls have almost completely stopped. I love the power to push a button once and never hear from the number again. I was just about ready to cancel my home phone because it seemed like all it was good for was giving scammers and telemarketers someone to harass.
Works great, apparently. Unfortunately theirs no way to be sure.
Customer service is great, Answered by real person with British accent day and night. The problem was my main line not working properly after installed CPR call blocker. Since I needed to program the phone, in line connection is must. When dial out , the call will cut off in 58 seconds, It was very annoying for the problem and did not mention in the booklet for common problem. The technician asked my to disconnect all share lines which did not resolve the problem. I have to move CPR to other location to make my main phone working again. My main purpose is blocking income unwanted call but not block outgoing call. The product shall have some language and possible solutions for the problem to avoid cut off or making call.
I've had it four days. I followed the simple instructions for blocking all private, no number calls, and overseas nuisance calls. Instead of the dozen or more nuisance calls every day, I had one the first day, blocked that number, and none since then. What a relief!
I got CPR Call Blocker in May, installed it on a Friday night and it worked immediately! Instead of getting about 2 dozen unwanted calls over the course of a weekend, I only got 2!!! Ahh...Peace and Quiet at last. It's a wonderful unit, and well worth the money. Unfortunately, we had a power surge recently and I noticed I was getting a lot more unwanted calls again. The ATT phone repairman discovered that my call blocker was shorted out while checking my phone lines for static. I was so sad to hear that. The repairman had never heard of this product, and wanted to get one for his home, since the "Do Not Call" registry is such a huge joke. As soon as I can afford it, I'm definitely going to replace this item.
Does exactly what it says. Very happy! Would highly recommend. Easy to set up.
Wow, what a difference! We went from several calls a day to just one or two still getting through. When it arrived, I set it up and went back through my caller ID to program in numbers that had recently called. Blocking a caller is simple. Manually entering a number requires a simple code to be punched in on your phone key pad. Get a dial tone, dial **7#, hear a tone and then dial the number you want to block followed by #. Another tone lets you know it was accepted. Now you won't get any more calls from that number. Its that simple. If you are near the Call Blocker when a call comes in, you can simply pick up the phone and hit the button on top of the Call Blocker. The call is disconnected and number will be blocked. The only problem is with the calls that come in with spoofed caller ID. Sometimes the ID will be a single number or an incomplete number which doesn't ID the caller. In those cases, I guess you just have to catch the call when it comes in and use the Call Blocker button. Overall, the calls volume is way down and home life is much more peaceful.
This box performs well it is easy to setup and to modify as needed. The calls that you don't want and handled without a ring and you are free to not talk with annoying people.
Terrific. Works like a charm right out of the box. Hasn't been this quiet in years! Highly recommended.
I bought this to block the annoying Windows Service Center scam. This product exceeded my expectations. This product can not only block anonymous international scam calls but also all the nuisance calls! One of the best products I've ever bought.
YAY!!!!!! peace and quiet....finally..... Though the set up was a bit tricky..(my son came to help)....the unit works like magic!!!!! PHEW.....no more scammy interuptions, no telemarketers, no more running to the phone ID only to be frustrated. this item is super!!!!
It seems to be working well. I was having a problem with calls that came up as 'anonymous' with no number. This was beginning to drive me crazy with several calls a day. My Panasonic phone system has a built in call blocker but it was unable to do anything useful. The CPR has successfully blocked this extreme nuisance. Installation was trouble free. To block calls there is a button to press that works on calls that are in progress and this is very easy. To block previous calls, specific numbers, or classes of calls you use your hand set to enter a series of # * and numbers. This can be a little confusing and leave you uncertain if you really inputed the correct number. There is no display on the device and this is its main failing I think. Otherwise I am completely happy so far.
Our phone hardly rings now with unwanted calls. The call blocker is worth the money.
Works as advertised. Unfortunately, a lot of the harassing calls I get are from spoofed numbers where the number displayed is not the real number calling so blocking it does not stop these calls.
Great item...I was constantly getting called several times a day from a few numbers. Once I programmed their numbers into call blocker I have not received one call from them.
We are loving this so far, only had it a few weeks, but peace reins in our home once again without unwanted phone calls. We highly recommend this for people who hate their unwanted calls.
I received mine today and it took all of five minutes to set it up. I immediately tested it by blocking my cell phone number, called my home number and sure enough, it blocked it. I then unblocked my cell. Since I am keeping records of numbers who call me (I then print up complaints that I see when I google the numbers because I now send them to the appropriate state attorney generals office in addition to filing a donotcall complaint), I had a couple of numbers that I programmed in right away. Lo and behold, I received a call from one of them and as promised, it stopped after one ring. I keep a list of number that call and that I have blocked by the phone so I know what I have blocked. I have Verizon landline and a cordless phone with one extension. I also have corded phones that I have temporarily unplugged and will only use in case of a power outage. I have also unplugged my answering machine (for personal reasons) since it was connected to a corded phone so I am not sure if that would have hampered the device. I did have a bit of confusion when a call came in and I tried to block it, wasn't sure if I was successful so I just programmed it after I hung up. I then read another review and realized what I should have done. Hopefully, I will do it correctly in the future. Also, I have seen complaints where it was shipped from England? This company is Fulfilled by Amazon and I ordered two other items along with this little gem on July 19 and received all today on July 24.
It appears to work quite well. I was a little confused when I first set it up and use it; problem was that I was trying too hard. It is simple: phone rings, answer and get annoying call, look at CallBlocker box and note little red lights are blinking (there has to be an active call or open line in order for red lights to go on and THAT is what drove me nuts until I figured it out), push button on CallBlocker, done, you don't hear from them again. Peace and quiet reign again in my little office. Thank you!
I had been bothered by calls from Cardholder Services offering to lower my credit card interest rates. They were calling me 2-3 times a day. This call blocker solved the problem a few minutes after it was delivered. Easy setup and installation and immediate results. Just press the button on the blocker when you get junk calls and you will never hear from them again. Very pleased.
This unit is worth every penny! I've seen some reviews that say it is not compatible with Time Warner or digital service but that's not true. Call the customer service number and the guys will talk you through set up. Follow directions in the booklet (enter special codes to block) and it's golden.
The calls have certainly reduced and when I do get a call with a number showing I push that little button and I have yet to see a repeat of that number. I still get calls with no number showing but they are not as frequent as the others were. If call does come through as a hang up I just add that number to the database. Device is about the size of a deck of cards so it is compact and easy to install. Great little gadget!
Works like advertised. The phone has almost stopped ringing. We have CenturyLink service. I use the TEL1 port as the TEL2 port won't show the caller ID number when the phone rings. If a call does get through, I answer and push the "block now" button and they are added to the list. If I want to block a missed call I unplug from the TEL1 port, plug into the TEL2 port, follow the instructions for blocking the last call and it's done. Couldn't be happier. The most silence we have had in years. Thank you!
So far, so good. It is really nice not to have to check the caller ID every time the phone rings.
So far it is the easiest and best I have used. The only thing some may not like is it needs to have the whole house plugged into it to stop the first ring where it catches the id and stops the call. I have AT&T DECT type phones so it only has to have the main unit plugged in. The POTS phones I have I just turn the ringer off.
Didn't work for me. Need DECT system. I would have to buy a whole new phone system to make it work. Can't afford replacing 5 phones at this time. I would think a call blocker for the telephone line would be what I need but I don't think they make that. I am returning it.
Works well. Finally stopping those unwanted calls.
This is a very early review of this item, but so far it has allegedly blocked numbers when I pressed red button during the incoming call ringing and for those I later found on my incoming call register, I was easily able, using code provided, to add these call numbers that came in while I was out to the block roster within this device. Time will tell if numbers blocked are actually blocked from repeating the call and I haven't used the total area code block capability yet. So far I'm very impressed with ease of hook-up and operation. I'll send more feedback if there are changes in my opinion.
The call blocker works very well in blocking calls. The only problem is that is not compatible with all voice recording devices. My experience was that programmed calls were blocked. My phone worked correctly when I was there to answer. However, if I was not home the answering machine would not record and there would be no record on the call list of the number. I understand that this problem is limited to certain answering machines and that shortening the rings before the voice recorder answers may solve the problem. I could not change the number on my answering machine as it was old and I could not find a manual home nor online. I gave it 4 stars because it does exactly what it advertises it will do.
This thing did just what it said it would do. The number of telemarketer calls has dropped to almost 0. Evenings are peaceful again. If an unwanted call is ringing, I press the button and they are blocked, for good. I can also manually enter numbers to be blocked. I did have to place a call to England with a support question, but it was an 800 # and they sent me the info I needed to make it work with my phone setup. Works great, Very happy with it.
Dear Sir: the Call Blocker works very well. Thank You FJ Galindo
Very effective at blocking unwanted calls.
Fantastic Gadget!!!!! Has done its job of blocking calls after being programmed. We are thrilled with this product and recommended to a neighbors too!!!!!! After a month of no unwanted calls, life is quiet!!!! we now have over 40 numbers blocked. Worth every penny. Now when the phone rings, we now expect to know the person calling. Wish we had installed this years ago. We have recommended this to all our colleges at work too. My profession is installing and maintaining phone systems for 250 offices nationwide. This product far exceeds simplicity to install, set up and performance is flawless. Anyone with a home phone should have this blocker as standard equipment along with your voicemail/answering machine.
Outstanding no more annoying calls
A great help in these days of political blind calling!
So far so good. I have this installed for about two weeks now. The setup was a breeze, but, I am sure my 81 year old mother would not be able to figure this out. The ability to block private calls and 900 calls is AWESOME! The nuisance calls have all but stopped. I love this thing!
Great product, you need to have a standards keypad to program the device, the keypad on the wireless phone wouldn't work but the keypad on the base of the phone would. The other issue is the fact that the "first" line goes into line "2" on the device....go figure. You need to set it up that way I believe as port 2 is the one that takes the power from the line and powers the device. You would think someone would fix the silkscreen on the unit. Otherwise this is a great device.
Super machine. Blocking all those calls is...sweet revenge!
