How do I use Anonymous Call Rejection?

Anonymous Call Rejection is a feature that comes with Caller ID. Anonymous Call Rejection lets you reject a call from a caller who blocks his/her phone number from being displayed. If you receive a blocked call, your phone will not ring and the phone number will not appear on your equipment. The caller who has blocked the display of his/her phone number will hear an announcement that you do not accept blocked calls. All other calls ring through as usual.
