I would be quite astonished if the community blocklist blocked "all 1-800 calls". I have community blocklist set to "block calls" and I still get calls from companies I do business with that have toll-free caller ID numbers.

Community blacklist is essentially useless. It blocks numbers that I need to allow, such as calls from the Webex teleconferencing service. I wonder what percentage of Ooma users have it disabled!

If Webex is one of those "free" conferencing systems that charges exorbitant connection fees to Ooma, then Ooma has probably blocked it outright.

Here's one thread about whitelisting:

Here's a reply in the above thread by Tom B of Ooma: ... 10#p104234

Here's the actual post from Bobby B of Ooma, referenced in the above thread. (Only "Wildcarding for blacklists", has been implemented, so far.): ... 087#p97087
Well, the reply from Tom says it is actively being worked on. But that was December, 2012!

No new information from me. I just want to add my name to the petition for a WHITELIST feature.
When I'm at work (a large Public University) I cannot call home when I have community blacklist enabled. I find this ridiculous!
