Does * 67 block your number?

Temporarily block your number
Actually, it's more like *67 (star 67) and it's free. Dial that code before the phone number, and it will temporarily deactivate caller ID. This can come in handy, as some people automatically decline calls from phones that block caller ID.

Is Nomorobo free for landlines?

Free solutions
An app called Nomorobo was one of my top recommendations for stopping robocalls on your smartphone and it's just as great for blocking bad callers on your home phone. On mobile it's a paid subscription, but it's free for landlines. It does not work however, on traditional "analog copper" phone lines.
