This feature uses a list function to store up to 16 directory numbers from which you receive calls.

An incoming call from a directory number that is not on your list is routed to an announcement stating that the called party does not wish to receive the call.

How to Use:

  • Pick up the handset and listen for the dial tone.
  • Press *64. On a rotary phone, dial 1164.
  • Listen for an announcement telling you whether the feature is currently on or off.
  • The recorded voice will then tell you how many (if any) numbers are currently stored on your acceptance list.
  • Follow the voice instructions and press 3 to turn the feature ON (if it is currently off), or turn the feature OFF (if it is currently on).

To Add The Last Caller To Your Acceptance List:

Press #01#. On a rotary phone, dial 1201.

To Hear The Phone Numbers On Your List:

  • Press 1. On a rotary phone, dial 1.
  • After the list is read, voice instructions will follow.

To Add A Number To Your List:

  • Press #. On a rotary phone, dial 12.
  • Follow the voice instructions. You can store up to 16 phone numbers on your list.

To Remove A Number From Your List:

  • Press *. On a rotary phone, dial 11.
  • Follow the voice instructions to remove any or all of those numbers.

To Hear Instructions Again:

Press 0. On a rotary phone, dial 0.

When Someone Calls:

When your feature is turned ON, you'll receive calls only from those on your acceptance list. Callers who are not on your list will simply hear an announcement that you are not accepting calls at this time.


You may press 1, 0, # or * (on a rotary phone, dial 1, 0, 12 or 11) at any time rather than waiting for the voice instructions. The list you create here is separate from any other lists you may be using for Distinctive Ringing, Selective Call Forwarding and similar features.
