How to turn off call barring on motive. Outgoing call barring: features of use

You can often encounter situations when people want to protect themselves from unwanted calls or there is a need to completely turn off incoming calls so that they can spend time in peace. Other situations can also be encountered. For example, if a subscriber is going to go abroad and wants to keep funds on his balance, then he needs to bar calls. MegaFon has developed the necessary option for its clients precisely for such purposes.

A security option for MegaFon subscribers called “Call Barring”. With this service you can ban any message, messages, subscriptions, etc. In addition, with the option you can block not only incoming but also outgoing calls. The article discusses a detailed description and use of the service. The material is relevant for the Moscow region. Residents of other regions are advised to check information on payment and service codes with the operator or on the company’s website before using the service.

What is a hidden number

Hiding a number is one of the functions of GSM networks. As a rule, any cellular operator has a paid number hiding service available. Different operators may call it differently: either “Anti-identifier” or “Incognito”, but the essence is the same, because It is based on the ability of the GSM network to hide the Caller ID of the caller.

If the subscriber has paid for such a service, he can choose whether to hide or show his phone number during a call. When you receive a call from a hidden number, the phone screen displays instead of the number or name: Number hidden

On different phones, the hidden number may also be called Private Number, Withheld

When is the function of barring incoming calls from hidden numbers useful?

It is logical to assume that most often the number hiding service

used by subscribers who have reasons to hide it. These could be taxi services, which often call from GSM gateways because they do not want the gateway number to be called back, and representatives of various other companies. Sometimes, even your friends can call you from a hidden number in order to intrigue or prank you. However, such techniques are often also used by debt collectors, scammers and other unpleasant individuals.

From my experience I can say this: the number hiding service was most often used by people with whom few people want to communicate. As a rule, calls from such people are not answered, and their phone numbers are blacklisted. Therefore, this is one of their methods to get through to someone who doesn’t really want to talk to you.

And the function of barring calls from unknown numbers

actually adds an unknown number to the blacklist.

Is it possible to block a number so they don't call?

Have you ever become a victim of a collection agency? It's good if not! Just imagine, one day, unfamiliar numbers appeared on the display of your mobile phone. After saying a hesitant “Hello,” at the other end of the phone you will hear a story about how your relative or even just the former owner of the number owed a large amount on a loan. Such companies will immediately offer to pay off the debt, but after your polite refusal they will call constantly. There is only one way out - to prohibit the subscriber from making calls.

There are several ways to block a number on an Android, iPhone or phone without an operating system. For the first two options, special applications have been developed for adding unnecessary subscribers to the blacklist. Absolutely all device models can be blocked using a telephone operator. You can ban both calls from a specific subscriber and hidden calls.

Blocking Options - Carrier Supported

The concept of call barring includes the following options:

  • barring incoming calls
    - all incoming calls are blocked;
  • barring outgoing calls
    - you cannot make calls from your phone;
  • blocking incoming calls from certain numbers - “black list” phones (installed on the phone);
  • blocking international outgoing messages (provider function);
  • blocking calls from and to phones of a specific operator (provider function);
  • blocking incoming calls while roaming (operator option).

Some functions can be configured on the mobile device together with forwarding or separately. For example, this could be a telephone for communication with a child’s nanny or a caregiver, a service connection with security, but communication with other numbers is disabled. Banning outgoing calls

installed, for example, on hotline telephones.

General methods

Let's look at the methods by which you can bar an outgoing call. Let’s immediately decide that it’s worth separating this feature, which applies to the phone as a whole, and a separate SIM card. In the first case, settings are made in the settings of the communicator itself. To activate call barring (outgoing calls), most often it is enough to dial the combination **33*phone password#. The required code is set separately, in most cases in the menu items: “Settings” - “Security”, and, accordingly, “Phone Password”. You need to remember that it is different from the SIM card code and is a separately configurable function. After entering this combination, you will not be able to make outgoing calls at all. Now let's tell you how to disable outgoing call barring. To do this, just dial the following combination: #33*phone password#. You can check the status of the ban using the command *#33#. In addition, all mobile operators provide . Using this innovation, you get the opportunity to completely block outgoing calls or selectively disable international calls or roaming. Now let's look at the outgoing call barring functions of the most common

Why is the ban happening?

If the function is accidentally or automatically activated, the problem may become almost unsolvable. When this might happen:

  • the option can be installed accidentally in the user’s personal account;
  • activated with other options;
  • Some operators install the function for tourists when traveling abroad with insufficient funds in their account.

Usually, roaming calls are limited, and outgoing calls are also disabled (for example, when activating an SMS communication package).

Mobile users who encounter this problem often buy a new SIM card and are already interested, but such restrictions can be removed at any convenient time. How to do it?

Option to ban communication services

Not many people know that the operator’s arsenal of additional services includes a function that allows you to get rid of annoying calls from all subscribers without exception. To use the option, you just need to know the code of the service being blocked and the password to connect it.

How the service works

A mobile operator subscriber can independently block unwanted functions for his SIM card. The list of blocked directions includes:

  • refusal of all outgoing contacts, incoming ones are received;
  • blocking of outgoing international calls outside the host country;
  • restriction on calls from another GSM, in all directions except Russia - in international roaming, the client can make calls to numbers of subscribers in the host country and to Russia;
  • banning all incoming calls – the right to make outgoing calls is granted;
  • preventing incoming calls when roaming, outgoing calls are supported.

Attention! For more limited blocking, restriction type codes are used, for example, only for voice communications, or for transactions other than SMS. Without specifying this parameter, the direction specified by the client is completely disabled.

Limitation and cost of service

Activation of the call barring feature on Megafon, as well as its subsequent maintenance, is provided to all subscribers free of charge. The user only pays for service activation if it was performed with the help of a mobile operator employee using the support line number 0500 or in a mobile phone store. The cost of such assistance from the company is 30 rubles.

There are minor restrictions on the use of services:

  • “Call barring” cannot be activated when the “Forwarding” mode is activated;
  • You can install only one block for one direction of incoming or outgoing transactions; activating the second will automatically cancel the first.

Attention! Regardless of the selected function, the client retains the ability to call emergency services, ambulance, police, Ministry of Emergency Situations, etc.

Managing an option from the device

To set the Call Barring mode, enter the following request *service code*ХХХХ# and dial key. The codes are shown in the table, and XXXX is the password for activating the service; the standard one is assigned to subscribers and is the same 1111.

For reference! The client can change the password using the combination *03*330*ХХХХ*ZZZZ*ZZZZ# and the dial button. XXXX is the old value, ZZZZ is the new value, followed by repetition.

Table 1. Codes of prohibiting services

To limit the use of the network taking into account the type of communication services, the request code must have the format *designation of the blocked direction (Table 1)*XXXX*YY# and a dial key. ХХХХ – password, YY – type of blocked service.

Table 2. Type codes

Important! If you neglect to set the content type, the entire selected direction will be disabled.

Disabling the activated option and removing call barring on your phone will allow you to resend a request similar to the one you used to connect.

How to fix the problem

First, check the status of the “black” lists on your mobile device. Next, you need to see what mode the phone is set to. Some operators allow you to block a number in your Personal Account.

You can configure call barring for a specific group of callers or for all subscribers without exception. In this case, you do not have to turn off your phone, and you can safely use the Internet. Using the call barring feature, you can only receive calls from loved ones.

Unfortunately, the operator does not publicly provide information on disabling the service. Subscribers will have to contact the operator from their number. If outgoing messages are blocked, you can do this through the website by entering your number in the support chat.

The main problems are related to the fact that subscribers activate the ban function on their mobile phone.
