Smart Limits

With smart limits, can I tell if a blocked number either tries to call me or text me? and if so can I actually read that text?  I also would like to know what a blocked number that texts me receives in return?

Re: Smart Limits

Hi there, cynstiller! Thanks for checking out our forum. The answer to your first question is no. You won't be able to tell if a blocked device tries to call you, because the calls/texts will not go through. Therefore, you won't be able to read any attempted text messages either. When a blocked device attempts to send a text to your device, they will see the following message:

 

"The wireless subscriber you are trying to reach is not accepting incoming msgs at this time.”  

 

Blocked callers will see hear this message:


“The AT&T subscriber you are trying to reach is not available at this time.”

 

Hope that helps!

Re: Smart Limits

I added this feature yesterday on one of my lines, I just found out that since the feature will only blocked 10-digit numbers this feature will only work for mostly local numbers. The rep said that if the caller or sender dialed a 1 in front of the number the feature will detect it as more thatn 10-digit, it will not blocked it even if the number is on your blocked number list. So useless, some people still dial 1 in front of a number that is not local. How can I blocked this number then?

Re: Smart Limits

If the number you blocked is a domestic 10-digit number and the caller enters a 1 in front of the number, it will still be blocked by Smart Limits. Please let us know if you continue having this issue.
