How do you block Unavailable calls

How do you block unavailable calls. Anonymous blocking doesn’t block them.  None of the call protect features work.  Is AT&T unable to provide this capability?

You can't block unavailable calls using phone company blocking service. You'll need a 3rd party blocking device or a phone with smart call blocker.

Another thing that AT&T can’t or won’tdo.

They are governed by the FCC as to what they can and can't block. Unavailable means no data was sent so it could be a glitch and if they block all unavailable they could block legitimate calls. If you use one of the methods suggested than it's you not the phone company that's responsible if a legitimate call gets blocked. You don't have to agree with it, but that's the way it is.
