Digital Phone Call Protect
Unwanted calls are annoying, especially when you are trying to have a nice, quiet evening at home. With AT&T Digital Home Phone Call Protect, you are able to eliminate some of these unwanted calls. Digital Home Phone Call Protect gets rid of unwanted calls in the following ways:
Automatic Fraud Blocking - Automatically detects and blocks call from likely fraudsters. If there are calls that you wish to come through or wish to block, you will be able to edit this further in your Call Logs.
Suspected Spam Warning - Suspected Spam calls are legal and cannot be blocked by AT&T. Instead, when a Spam call is received, a warning will be displayed showing "Suspected Spam" instead of the caller name. Spam call messages include:
- Suspected Spam
- Debt Collector
Call Block - block with *61 or online.
