Anonymous Call Rejection (*77)

Reject anonymous calls

Note: This article applies to AT&T local home phone service. Don't have traditional phone service? Select Voice service or wireless service.

Anonymous Call Rejection (*77) intercepts calls from people who have used a blocking feature to prevent their name or number from being provided to people they call. When Anonymous Call Rejection is activated, callers hear a message telling them to hang up, unblock delivery of their phone number and call again. Your phone will not ring unless the caller removes the block.

Helpful hints

  • Anonymous Call Rejection stays on until you turn it off.
  • If a call comes in from a private number on your Personalized Ring or Selective Call Forwarding list, the call will be accepted.
  • Anonymous Call Rejection does not intercept calls that display as Unknown or Out-of-Area on the Caller ID. These designations usually mean that the call originated in an area in which Caller ID is not available.
