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 Blocking does not affect Contacts listed on your YouMail account
Ex: You set up a 714? Contact + Block it, but your friend Jim at 7145550123 won't be affected, even though every other 714 number not in your contacts list will. It will only block callers with 714 area code who are not in your YouMail contacts.
- 7145550??0 will Ditch numbers such as 7145550110 and 7145550910.
- To block 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 block EVERY caller, simply block the 'Default' contact.
