the DCB Plus works
Blocker Plus comes from the factory preset to allow all callers with a valid
phone number displayed to ring through just like normal. Block
Unavailable, Out of Area, Anonymous, Private or any name without a phone
number and will be hung up on. Also, the phones throughout
your home or office will continue to ring on Invited calls until the seventh
ring, when the call blocker will answer the call and hang up to prevent a
caller from tying up the line.
Alternatively, if you miss your Invited caller, your combo phone/answer machine or
your phone company's voice mail service will take a message for you.
