This is getting to the point where our management is considering termination of service, because we are getting so much spam calls.  Not sure what a list would do, though, because so many numbers are spoofed.


I think the wireless/VoIP/Telco industry needs to act on this sooner rather than later.  It's getting to the point of impacting our revenue(time) due to unwanted phone calls coming in.

Pete,

For what it's worth, and as you stated since so many calls are spoofed nowadays, what good would terminating your service with RIngCentral accomplish? Other VoIP services have the same issues, as I've seen evidenced in their support channels and other venues? Terminating your service with one provider to possibly have just as bad a situation with another provider is like throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Some businesses/industries seem to be hit with more spam calls than others, as well as certain locations being hit more often than others. Personally and thankfully, my business gets very few spam calls (less than 5 p/week). Of course your management will have to choose what they think is best for their business but in this day and age I don't see the point in jumping between providers. Your mileage may vary.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Import Block LIst (not robo calls).

This has nothing robo calls. I just want import a list to block people from calling us.

I know you can add them one by one and in the call log.

Need to be able import a block list 1M+

I'm with everyone else here.  The time everyday spent stopping what I'm doing to answer the phone, figure out that it's a bogus call, and then log in to block 1 number is ridiculous.

Android has spam warnings built into the OS, and then there are additional apps like TrueCaller that manage large databases of known spam numbers.

At the very least there should be a way to import a CSV that we can either generate or download, so that we can block an entire list.
Hello all,

I'm glad this topic is already brought up. Is there any progress on this from RingCentral?

I want to add a list of numbers to block for my company account (the so called blacklist). The only options I could see is either to add a blocked number through the call log (meaning someone would have to be on the phone with them), or to add for a single user numbers one by one.

Will there be a solution?
Thank you for your response, at least one part of the question solved. Now, how do we do it for a list of numbers to be blocked? Once there any way to do this without having to add 100+ numbers one by one, this topic could be closed and many businesses will have an option that will make their lives a lot easier. Cheers

Hey Aleksandar,

I agree, it would be helpful to be able to upload a list as opposed to copying/pasting them one-by-one. Unfortunately, we don't have that feature yet. If I hear anything on the matter, I will update this thread :)

It would be nice to hookup up service to our phone system, like spamcop.
