About caller restrictions

With the BlackBerry MVS Client, you can prevent or allow specific callers to reach you on your BlackBerry smartphone when they call your work number.

If you normally want to receive calls from specific callers, you can add those callers to the allowed caller list. If you do not want to receive calls from specific callers, you can add those callers to the blocked caller list. You can add up to 20 callers to each list.

You can apply caller restrictions in the following ways:

  • You can allow all callers to reach you, except for callers who appear in your blocked caller list.
  • You can allow only callers who appear in your allowed caller list to reach you.
  • You can prevent all callers from reaching you.
  • You can prevent callers whose caller ID is unknown from reaching you.
  • You can override caller restrictions and allow all callers to reach you, without removing callers from your blocked caller list.
