User controlled Blacklist for Cisco 8861 phones?

Does anyone know of a way for end users to block unwanted calls from their phone?  I know there are multiple ways to block calls in Call Manager and in the router, but what I am looking for is something the end user could easily control at the phone level, maybe similar to the *60 call blocking that the LEC provides or even a IP Phone service that allows users to enter a number in a list that blocks the entered number.


Thanks in advance for any reply.

You would need to build the interface for the user to input the numbers and then push the required configuration to CUCM or IOS, nothing built in to do that.

Jaime is right, Cisco doesn’t have this natively.

If you don’t have a lot of calls just annoying persons , Jabber is a sort of stop gap. You can add contacts to Outlook or the roster and name them like “ do not answer “ or similar then decline them from the desktop .

Not perfect but easier than writing scripting .

It’s been a long time since I have spoken to these folks but you may want to ask LiteScape if their SmartRoute product can support that use case:

The CUCM CURRI API is the underlying mechanism for this but someone has to provide the application/logic for CUCM to query.
