What service do you have?  We have FIOS Digital Voice and there is no *77 listed.  I see *72, 73, 69, 57, 43, 44, 70, 31 32, 67, 82 and 75.  No *77 in the list, what is it supposed to do?

There is a Star Card Chart on page 24 of the User Guide:  https://www36.verizon.com/fiosvoice/userguide/User_Guide.pdf

*77 is Anonymous Call Reject that is supposed to block anonymous, unavailable, and private calls.

I've turned the function on and it doesn't seem to work on "Private" calls for some reason.

Regards.

Lots of things it doesn't block.  Fundamental to the original system and I wish not carried over to FIOS DV.

@TNS, Vonage did a much better job of blocking unknown or private numbers.

My reason for mentioning the carry over to FIOS DV. Essentially verizon is using the same rules and system used on their POTS type phones, rather they implementing something better.
