  • Go to section

Sometimes it may be a good idea to prevent incoming or outgoing calls. Call barring allows you to block both incoming and outgoing UK and international calls, whether you're at home or abroad.

This way you don't have to worry about unsuitable calls being made or received on your phone.

The benefits of call barring from Orange:
  1. there's no charge for this service

  2. you can block all incoming, outgoing and international calls while at home or abroad

  3. it's easy to manage through your phone's menu

  4. it's ideal for parental control

  5. emergency numbers, like 112 and 999, can still be dialled

If you're going abroad

If you want to control calls made and received while you're abroad, you can still bar all incoming and outgoing calls.

However, not all foreign networks support call barring and it may still be possible for outgoing calls to be made.
