Note: Blocked numbers can be managed by going to the Call History page and clicking the "Manage Blocked Phone Numbers" button at the bottom.

 

 

When testing these changes, you must dial your Talkroute Phone Number from a phone number that is NOT listed as a Forwarding Phone Number. If you attempt to call your Talkroute Phone Number from a Forwarding Phone Number, the call will disconnect or outbound dialing will be initiated (if enabled).
