How to Block Calls on Windstream

Windstream Communications allows callers to block their calls selectively. According to the Windstream Communications "Feature & Information Guide," users can activate a feature called Selective Call Rejection to block calls from specific numbers, or Anonymous Call Rejection to block calls from callers who have disabled their caller ID. Blocking unwanted callers can save the user time and stress. Anonymous Call Rejection is activated by default, but the user must activate Selective Call Rejection through a dial-in menu.
