1. General information
The CallBlocker allows you to block your telephone line for outgoing calls or selectively enable calls.
The CallBlocker also checks the dial tones of all terminals connected to it. If a prefix or number that
is entered as “not permitted” in the CallBlocker’s memory is dialled, the CallBlocker breaks the
connection.
The blocker, which is intended for analogue telephone lines such as T-Net from Deutsche Telekom
AG or the analogue output of a PABX, also has a timer. The timer limits telephone calls to between
1 and 9 minutes. It can be switched off.
Make sure to read about all of the CallBlocker’s functions before connecting it.
The CallBlocker is already set to block 0190 and 0900 numbers. Other numbers can be programmed
if required using a telephone connected to the CallBlocker. It must be set to touchtone dialling.
2. Safety instructions
The CallBlocker is only intended for use in dry rooms. Only use it as described in this manual.
Enabling emergency number and ensuring they function.
Enter blocked numbers to make sure the CallBlocker functions. The following prefixes are already
blocked: 0190 and 0900 (also call-by-call) see section 6. d).
The CallBlocker functions only with touchtone terminals (terminals can be telephones, fax machines
and modems, for example). The CallBlocker blocks pulse dialling.
The blocker only blocks dial signals from terminals that are connected to both outlets of the
CallBlocker. Devices that are upstream from the CallBlocker in the electrical circuit are not included.
The two outlets are wired in parallel. If two telephones are connected, they can influence each other
if both receivers are picked up if necessary.
In this case, if you would like one telephone (or terminal) to be blocked, connect the terminals using
the Y-switch toggle switch, Hama item no. 44811, to the CallBlocker. This step also applies for
modems and fax machines.
Users must always make sure a block functions, whether the block was pre-programmed or set by
the user. See also section “6 k Checking settings”. For obvious reasons, Hama accepts no liability for
damage resulting from malfunction, improper programming, improper use or the like.
Do not open and/or make changes to the CallBlocker. The blocker does not contain any parts that
need servicing.
Only use the CallBlocker as described in this manual.
Do not use the blocker if the cable or casing is damaged or if liquid enters the blocker.
Contact Hama service for all other errors.
The function of the CallBlocker applies only to the CallBlocker itself, not to the function when used
with other additional devices or PABX devices that can influence terminal dialling (telephone, fax,
modem, etc.) by dialling prefixes or changing or inserting signals or pauses, etc. This applies in
particular to routers or other terminals with a router integrated as hardware or software.
Please take this into account and if necessary, check the manual of any additional devices.

4. Quick guide for experienced users
This quick guide under item 3 is intended for experienced users only but does not replace the
full version (all sections other than 3).
a) Plug the CallBlocker into the telephone jack and connect your terminal to the CallBlocker.
b) You must always enter the password (factory setting: 0000) when programming using your
telephone.
c) The programming switch (underside) must be set to “PROGR. EIN” if you would like to change
the settings. Prefixes 0190 and 0900 are already blocked (plug-and-play).
Then slide the switch to “PROGR. AUS”.
d) The following commands are available after you have entered the password.
Press the pound key twice before entering the password and once after entering the password.
## 0000 # (= password entry – 0000 is factory-set) and then one command:
“x” stands for a prefix (1- 4 digits) or number with a prefix ( 5 – 11)
xxxx*
= Enable this prefix or number
xxxx#
= Block this prefix or number
#xxxx# = Delete this number from the respective list (number means either prefix only
or prefix and number)
*#
= Delete all prefixes from the list
#*
= Delete all numbers from the list
Wait for the signal tone from the CallBlocker each time.
Setting the timer:
Enter password ## 0000 #
*t#
= t stands for the time in minutes, 1 – 9 possible, 0 = OFF
Short tones: OK / Long tones or tones in pairs: error
5. Connecting the CallBlocker
This block protects all downstream terminals (phone,
fax, modem...) from calls to undesirable telephone
numbers. Connect the F connector of the CallBlocker
to the telephone jack marked F. Connect the
terminals you want to be protected (telephone, fax or
modem) to the CallBlocker outputs marked N and F.
The outputs are wired in parallel. If you want to
prevent more than one terminal from accessing the
telephone line simultaneously, connect the terminals
to the CallBlocker using an automatic Y-switch
toggle switch, Hama item no. 44811.
Please note that only terminals that are connected to
the CallBlocker outputs are protected. If you would
like to block more than one jack or output of a PABX,
you need more than one CallBlocker.
Input
TAE-N/F-Plug
Output
TAE-N/F-Sockets
(socalled Multimode U)
6. Programming switch
The CallBlocker has a programming switch.
This safety switch protects against unwanted access (PROGR AUS switches
off change settings function). It prevents the connected or outside terminals
from manipulating the CallBlocker by changing the settings.
We recommend sliding the switch to “PROGR. AUS” after programming.
If someone attempts to enter the access code (password) while the switch is
set to PROGR AUS, the CallBlocker responds immediately with a paired tone.
It does not allow the code to be entered.
7. Programming the CallBlocker
plate on underside
The CallBlocker makes a difference between blocking an entire range of telephone numbers
(for example, prefixes) or only certain telephone numbers.
Plug-and-play:
The prefixes 0190 and 0900 are already blocked. This prevents value-added services, which are often
unserious providers, scam operators or automatic diallers. If you only want protection from these
types of numbers, you do not need to take any additional steps. The factory-set blocks already
prevent this. You can plug in the CallBlocker without having to do any programming.
Beginning programming
The programming switch must be set to PROGR EIN. See section 5.
Always enable emergency numbers!
Programming always begins with the password and then the required command. The password is
factory-set to 0000 and can be changed as desired. Always press the pound key “#” twice before
entering the password and once afterwards. The pound key is next to the 0.
These instructions always assume the password is 0000. Please take this into account if you have
changed the password.
You will use the number keys 0 through 9, the pound key “#” and star key “*”.
The CallBlocker must be connected to the telephone network. Use the telephone connected to it to
make entries. (Touchtone devices only!! You can recognizes touchtone phones by listening to the
tones in the receiver when dialling. See also the telephone’s manual.)
List of all commands: (list = entries in memory)
“x” stands for the digits of the prefixes or numbers. “x” can have from 1 to 11 digits.
Always enter the code first.
xxxx*
= Enable this prefix or number
xxxx#
= Block this prefix or number
#xxxx#
= Delete this number from the respective list
(number means either prefix only or prefix and number)
*#
= Delete all prefixes from the list
= Delete all numbers from the list
#*
Once you begin making entries, you will also hear tones or error messages (announcements) from
the telephone network in addition to the CallBlocker’s acknowledgement signals.
Ignore them and continue making entries.
a) Blocking prefixes (prefixes have 1 to 4 digits)
Example: You would like to block the prefix 038.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Set the prefix block to 038: 038# (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
Prefix 038 is now blocked. No numbers beginning with 038 can be dialled.
b) Enabling prefixes (prefixes have 1 to 4 digits)
Example: You would like to enable the prefix 0381 and want 038 to remain blocked.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Enable prefix 0381: 0381* (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
Prefix 038 remains blocked, but numbers beginning with 0381 can be dialled.
c) Deleting prefix blocks
Example: You would like to delete the prefix block for 038
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Delete prefix 038: # 038 # (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
The prefix 038 is now deleted from the list of blocked prefixes and can be dialled again. Prefix 0381
(see a) remains in the list of enabled prefixes and takes one of the up to 16 memory locations.
Keep this in mind and delete if necessary.
d) Blocking numbers (numbers have 5 to 11 or more digits)
Numbers with more than 4 digits are considered telephone numbers by the CallBlocker.
Example: You would like to block the telephone number 0171 123456.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Block the number 0171 123456: 0171 123456 # (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
Telephone number 0171 123456 is now blocked. It cannot be dialled. This number takes one of the
10 memory places in the list of (VIP) numbers.
Note: See also section 8 c).
e) Deleting telephone number blocks
Example: You would like to delete the telephone number block for 0171 123456.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Delete the number 0171 123456: # 0171 123456 # (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
The number 0171 123456 is now deleted from the list of blocked numbers and can be dialled again.
The memory location is available.
f) Enabling VIP numbers (5 to 11 or more digits)
VIP telephone numbers can still be dialled even though their prefixes are blocked (for example,
0190 hotline of a service provider).
Example: You want to enable the VIP telephone number for 0190 123456 even though the prefix
0190 is blocked.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Enable VIP number 0190 123456: 0190 123456 * (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
The number 0190 123456 is now in the list of stored VIP numbers and can be dialled.
All other numbers beginning with 0190 are blocked.
This number takes one of the 10 memory places in the list of (VIP) numbers.
Note: VIP numbers can have up to 11 digits including the prefix. If the VIP number you would like
to enter has more than 11 digits, just enter the first 11 digits. The remaining digits are not taken
into account.
g) Switching call-by-call on and off
The automatically recognizes whether a 010xy cost-saving prefix (call-by-call prefix) is dialled first.
This feature is factory-set. You can switch this feature on and off.
To do so:
Switching on the feature
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Switch on call-by-call recognition: ## (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
Switching off the feature
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Switch off call-by-call recognition: ** (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
Important: We recommend leaving call-by-call recognition on all the time so blocked numbers
and prefixes can always be recognized.
When using the CallBlocker with a PABX, it may be necessary to switch off the feature.
Please read section “9. Instructions for use with PABX/ISDN PABX devices”.
h) Timer
The timer function allows you to limit the length of incoming and outgoing calls.
The timer command is * t # (t stands for the number of minutes 1 – 9, 0 equals OFF)
Example: You want to limit telephone conversations to 5 minutes.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Set the timer to 5 minutes: * 5 # (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
All conversations will be stopped after 5 minutes. You will hear a warning signal shortly before
calls are interrupted.
Possible entries:
0
= Timer OFF
1 ... 9
= Time limit is 1 - 9 minutes
Factory setting: Timer OFF
i) Changing the password
The password, which is factory-set to 0000, can be changed.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Enter a new password ##xxxx# (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver. The new password is stored. “xxxx” stands for your new password, which
consists of numbers 0 - 9.
j) Forgot the password?
You can delete the password if you forget it.
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Press the pound key seven times “## #### #” (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver. The password is reset to 0000 (factory setting)
k) Checking the settings
You should write down all your entries and check to make sure they function properly.
If you use the factory settings for example, you must check the following numbers on all
connected terminals:
Number:
CallBlocker reaction
0190 123
Warning tone and dialling interrupted
0900 123
Warning tone and dialling interrupted
010xy 0190 123
Warning tone and dialling interrupted
010xy 0900 123
Warning tone and dialling interrupted
0191 123
No reaction; number is not blocked
010xy 0901 123
No reaction; number is not blocked
xy stands for any number (2 or 3 digits) between 0 and 9 (call-by-call test)
If you have changed the factory settings or set any additional blocks, you must expand or adjust
the function test.
Example: You have also blocked the prefix 038 but enabled number 0381 123456. Call-by-call
recognition is on.
Number:
CallBlocker reaction
038 6789
Warning tone and dialling interrupted
0381 1234567
No reaction; number (not blocked) is enabled
010xy 038 6789
Warning tone and dialling interrupted
010xy 0381 1234567
No reaction; number (not blocked) is enabled
Important: If the CallBlocker does not function as expected, a programming error was made, a
function is faulty or another problem exists. You must resolve the problem immediately. See the
Troubleshooting section.
8. Deleting programming
You have up to 16 memory locations for prefixes (1 to 4 digits) and up to 10 memory locations for
telephone numbers (1 to 11or more digits). For example, you can block 6 telephone numbers and
enable 4 VIP numbers.
To delete the list of all prefixes, whether blocked or enabled, proceed as follows: (always wait for
theCallBlocker dial tones)
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Delete list of all prefixes: *# (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
The entire list of prefixes in the CallBlocker’s memory is deleted, and space is available for up to
16 new entries.
To delete the list of all telephone numbers, whether blocked or enabled, proceed as follows:
(always wait for the CallBlocker dial tones)
To do so:
- Pick up the receiver
- Enter password ##0000 (dial tone) # (dial tone)
- Delete list of all telephone numbers: #* (dial tone)
- Hang up the receiver or enter additional commands beginning with the password
The entire list of telephone numbers in the CallBlocker’s memory is deleted, and space is available for
up to 10 new entries.
Deleting both lists is a good idea if you are not sure whether older entries that are no longer
required have been deleted. They would take up memory unnecessarily.
If the memory is full, the CallBlocker does not accept any entries and issues a long dial tone or
paired tone.
9. General notes
a) Please be aware that information services offer forwarding. You can use this service to get
around a blocked mobile phone number. Telephone numbers of these types of services usually
begin with 118xy and should be blocked according to their use.
There are also other similar services that use toll free numbers such as 0800 numbers to try to
connect you to toll services. They usually ask you if you would like the call to be completed
before making the (toll) connection. See the German Regulator Authority for Telecommunications
and Posts Web site (www.regtp.de) for information.
b) Users are responsible for all of the CallBlocker features described here.
IMPORTANT: Users must always make sure that each block functions properly.
See the “Checking settings” section.
c) When blocking individual telephone numbers with your own area code, you must also block your
own area code to prevent numbers from being dialled when the area code is also dialled.
Note: Do not forget additional 0’s that may be necessary when using PABX devices.
It is also a good idea to enter as few digits as possible when blocking individual telephone
numbers. This prevents undesirable calls from being placed if connections are extremely fast.
d) When using the blocker with the analogue line of ISDN PABX devices, please activate the option
of selecting an outside line automatically; i.e. it must not be necessary to dial 0 for an outside line.
e) Instead of c), you can retain the option of selecting an outside line by dialling 0 if you set a 0010
block on the CallBlocker (switch off call-by-call block and set 0010 block using ## code# 0010#)
and if you change the pre-programmed blocks from 0190 to 0019 and 0900 to 0090. Call-by-call is
not possible. PABX devices of this size generally have an integrated LC router or their line is
preselected.
f) 0900 numbers began replacing 0190 numbers in the beginning of 2003 and will continue to do so
through 2005.
g) See the German Regulator Authority for Telecommunications and Posts Web site at www.regtp.de
for more information on telephone numbers.
h) When entering commands and codes, wait for the confirmation signals from the CallBlocker
before making new entries.
i) Blocking and enabling telephone numbers
Enter up to 11 digits of telephone numbers that you would like to block or enable. The CallBlocker
can only store 11 digits, even if the number you would like to block is longer.
Likewise, enabled numbers are only checked through their 11th digit and permitted.
Block as few digits as possible to ensure that the call is blocked early.
j) Programming ISDN PABX devices
Some ISDN PABX devices already use the combination of ## and their code for internal
programming. In this unlikely case, press the Flash or R key to begin programming the CallBlocker
at the “enquiry call” level of the PABX. Or program the CallBlocker at a normal
analogue landline jack, for example friends’ or neighbours’ line.
k) The CallBlocker functions only with touchtone lines and touchtone terminals. Pulse dialling
terminals are not compatible with the CallBlocker. If you want to use devices with pulse dialling
as receivers only, block pulse dialling in your PABX (if applicable) or have your service provider
(for example, Deutsche Telekom AG) block pulse dialling if the receiver does not work.
See the operating manuals of devices.
l) Check the block function of your CallBlocker regularly to make sure that it is still functioning, that
programs have not been changed and that it has not been damaged or unplugged.
m) The CallBlocker complies with R&TTE Directives and is CE-certified. A warranty is provided as
required by law. The blocker must not be opened, modified or damaged by mechanical means.
The CallBlocker may only be used for the purpose described here. Enable emergency numbers!!!
n) The CallBlocker works with a large range of supply current. In rare cases, it may not receive
enough electricity when used with older telephone toggle switches such as AMS and AWADo.
If this is the case, replace the toggle switch with a Y-switch, Hama item no 44811.
Please read this manual carefully. Contact our technical service for support.
8. Blocking prefixes for mobile phones: PW 015# PW 016# PW 017# AND enabling a mobile
telephone number: PW 0171 123456*
Confirm and end by hanging up the receiver.
All mobile networks are blocked, but one mobile number is enabled.
Note: This list of prefixes was current at the time this manual was printed.
9. Blocking all telephone numbers: PW 0# PW 1# PW 2# PW 3# PW 4# PW 5# PW 6# PW 7# PW 8#
PW 9# AND enabling four telephone numbers: PW 0171 123456* PW 123456* PW 7891234*
PW 6598752*
Confirm and end by hanging up the receiver. Complete block, four telephone numbers enabled.
10.International block: PW 00#
Confirm and end by hanging up the receiver. All international calls are blocked.
11.Switching on call-by-call recognition: PW ##
Confirm and end by hanging up the receiver. The CB-13 recognizes if a telephone number with a
cost-saving prefix 010xy is dialled and then blocks the undesirable numbers.
RECOMMENDATION: Always switch on call-by-call recognition.
12.Switching off call-by-call recognition: PW **
Confirm and end by hanging up the receiver. The CB-13 does not recognize if a telephone number
with a cost-saving prefix 010xy is dialled.
RECOMMENDATION: Always switch on this feature, except possibly when programming.
Note: Examples 1 through 12 were selected randomly. Any combination can be entered.
In other words, after entering the password, you can set a time limit and program different
prefixes and telephone numbers.
12. Full memory
The CallBlocker’s memory allows up to 16 prefixes (blocked or enabled) and up to 10 (VIP) telephone
numbers. Prefixes are considered numbers with 1 to 4 digits. Telephone numbers have 5 to 11 or more
digits including the prefix.
Once the CallBlocker’s memory is full, no more entries can be made. The blocker acknowledges
entries with a long dial tone.
In this case, check the entries you have made and delete some or all of them as described in this
manual.
13. Troubleshooting
Problem: I can’t dial out (since the CallBlocker is connected).
Solution: Your telephone may be a pulse dialling telephone.
Switch it to touchtone, or use a touchtone phone.
Problem: I can’t program.
Solution: The programming switch is not switched to PROGR EIN, or the memory is full.
Delete the entries you no longer need from the memory.
Check whether the CallBlocker and telephone are connected properly.
Problem: I hear rattling when I pick up the phone.
Solution: You may have an old AWADo or AMS telephone toggle switch installed.
Replace it with the Hama Y-switch as described in this manual.
Problems with small PABX devices or terminal adapters:
Some small terminal adapters do not provide the correct voltage. The voltage is only high enough for
one telephone to work. Terminals may not be compatible with each other. Modems and cordless
telephones are the most compatible. Check whether the error still occurs with other terminals
(telephone).
A different terminal adapter may be the solution.
14. Notes/settings
Record your settings here
Enable emergency numbers!!!
10. Note: using the CallBlocker with PABX/ISDN PABX
Users operating the CallBlocker with a PABX should read section 8, particularly parts
c) , d) , e) and j).
11. Examples
You must enter the password (for example, ##0000# ) before entering a command!
