The Wild Card feature allows YouMail members to create contacts without a full phone number. This feature allows you to create special greetings or block entire area codes, companies or other sets of phone numbers.
- 714? --- matches anything that starts with 714
- However, Wildcard Ditches do not affect Contacts listed on your YouMail account
Ex: You set up a 714? Contact + Ditch it, but your friend Jim at 7145550123 won't be affected, even though every other 714 number not in your contacts list will
- 7145550??0 will Ditch numbers such as 7145550110 and 7145550910
- To ditch an area code that starts with a certain number, you'll want to add a contact like this: #??
The # is the digit of the area code you'd like to ditch. For example, if you want to block 714, 757, etc.; you'll add and ditch 7?? (or 7?)
- To ditch EVERY caller, simply ditch the 'Default' contact
