Call Blocking - More than 20 numbers

U-Verse Voice should allow more than 20 numbers to be blocked.  I use this service to eliminate political calls, telemarketers using polling, and religeous groups.

Does ATT provide a ChargeBack feature to help prevent unwanted calls?

Caller ID and Call blocking aren’t enough. Merely blocking unwanted phone calls does little to dis-incentivize the scammer from continuing to robocall other victims. What is needed is a ChargeBack feature. The idea for ChargeBack is after receiving an unwanted call you can select to block and charge

Why does technology only make it easier for the scammer?

How can we stop these calls (landline) ? Seems like the louder we praise and marvel at our own technology, hackers & scammers benefit all the more. VoIP makes an overseas call appear local, CID can be spoofed to show as a local call, if memory serves, I once got a call from my own number. How can yo

Why is U-verse Call Blocking limited to 20 numbers?

This has been a busy season for scam calls, spoofed calls, and telemarketers who ignore the Do Not Call list.  After switching to U-verse Voice from AT&T POTS I was pleased that Call Blocking is an included feature, but the limit of 20 numbers is unfortunate.  Just today we got three scam calls; the
