How to use lookup file to block callers

Postby happycamper » Tue Sep 06, 2011 6:53 pm

Trying to block calls from specific area codes, too much spam.
How much can I wildcard in the lookup file?
E.g. can I do this to block everybody from area code 212?

Phone Number,Display Name,Action (<empty> | block | ignore)
"1-212-XXX-XXXX"," ",block

If this does not work does anybody have an apple script perhaps to do this?

Thanks

The only "wildcard" currently supported is to provide a matching phone number prefix.
For example "212" should match all phone numbers from area code 212.

If that doesn't work, please drop me an Email, I'd be glad to help you resolve this.

What would the syntax be?
Phone Number,Display Name,Action (<empty> | block | ignore)
"212"," ",block

or something else?

i tried this one with my mobile number and it did not block anything. But my number is in phone book.
