How do I block certain numbers so that they do not call? For example - TELEMARKETERS! There doesn't seem to be any way to block them.

    Jim,

    I'm sorry, but that isn't a function supported by Whistle at this time. I wish it were—nobody likes telemarketers. However, you can always refuse to pick up for numbers you don't recognize, or you can exit Whistle if you want to avoid calls entirely. If you find you're getting an excessive number of unwanted calls, you have the option to change your Whistle number for $7.99, too.

    I just tried to return a call, and I received a recorded message saying I had to download Whistlephone to get my call accepted. I do not use your app.

    The call was from a scammer.

    Evidently your app now does allow blocking calls not made by callers using Whistlephone. Scammers probably love this feature. So how can I go the other way and block all calls FROM Whistlephone?

    As in any case you will need to block the number one by one. I am not sure if this is a Landline or your cell phone the calls are coming in on. what was the number that called you. Once you give me that I can investigate the matter fully.
