Blocking Cell Phone Numbers

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The capabilities of toll free services have really evolved over the years with LC routing and blocking as two of the most common requests from our customers.

We wanted to inform you about the routing complications cell phones have. Blocking unwanted areas is often a great strategy for dealing with wrong numbers or misdials. Unfortunately though, cell phones are tending to make those geographic assumptions incorrect. Today, anyone can have a cell phone from anywhere in the country. At this moment, we cannot do anything about this issue but it has been brought to the FCC’s attention.

As always, we will update you when any new information comes out.

If you look at ATL’s last blog posting, you’ll see a Committee written letter that required agreement from multiple companies.  Some of the participating companies are afraid of asking the FCC for certain rulings because the answer may be worse than what we have.  I believe everyone operating by different rules is worse than anything the FCC might come up with.

What I like about blogs is I can say anything I want, so here’s my list including my order of importance, including one that didn’t make the Committee list.

 

  1. Hoarding and Warehousing.  This is a biggie and if the FCC can’t find a more reasonable definition and a consistently applied policing policy the rest of this won’t matter.
  2. Sale of Toll Free Numbers.  This wasn’t in there and it should have been.  The industry has to face this question so everyone plays the same game.
  3. Direct Transfers of Toll Free Numbers.  Just let us all go back to what we were doing.  It worked.
  4. Need to Accommodate Geographic Routing during PSTN Transition.  We need the FCC to order carriers, every carrier in the call route, to provide the party paying for the call the exact, correct originating information.  There are no exceptions.
  5. CPNI Rules and Toll Free Services.  Same as the last one. But, this one already has an FCC ruling, so all the FCC has to say is what they said before is what they meant, so get over it.
  6. Letter of Agency.  Sounds like a good idea to me.
  7. RespOrg Registrations and Affiliated RespOrgs.  This is mostly an issue during the release of a new 8XX code and if the FCC would rule on the current request before them for 844, we would have a precedent and could move on.  The other time this issue is important is when we vote for SMS/800, Inc. board members and we handled that in the design.
  8. Averting Premature Exhaust of Toll Free Numbers.  If #1 got solved, this would be solved.
  9. New Rules to Encourage Efficient Use of or Access to Toll Free Numbers.  I never did know what this meant.
