FML - The follow-up
dope_mcfly Say more :
Hey, OP here. I would have mentioned in the FML that my work phone is one of those "dumb phones" and does not have any option to block numbers. After she did that for two nights in a row, I wound up setting one of the fax machine at my office to auto-dial her mobile and house phones every 15 minutes. Now, the only thing that wakes me up is the occasional user who forgot their login info, and my wife's odd food cravings.

That's very true. My mom told me to enjoy it while I can because they don't like letting you sleep. Well, that's very true for me. If OP's mom were my mother in law I would break all her phones.

I agree. Sleep is going to be such a highly valued thing for OP in the near future!

22 If she called every two hours, she also didn't sleep longer than two hours. As well, she's obviously had a kid, OPs wife, so she must have gone through this before and knows what it's like. That being said, I agree he should block her. Just because it will happen doesn't mean it has to prematurely.

On Android you can usually set a 'black list'. My children started sleeping through the night within the week they each came home from hospital, so don't expect the worst, be prepared though.

#145, he's probably not allowed to switch his phone off because hes on-call. If his work needs him, then he has to be able to hear his phone ring to wake him up. It should be possible to make it silent just for his mother-in-law though.

#21 - pretty sure most, if not all, do. many years ago when i had a brick nokia phone, even that had the block a number option. it may be called different things, but every phone i have had has had that option.

Not all phone's have this feature. Many carriers reserve that as something you have to do thru them so they can charge you for it. Even with newer smartphones. You can get apps that route your calls thru them allowing you to block for free or less then your carrier, but you may not like the other features involved and some still cause your phone to ring, only briefly such as 1 ring, before sending to voicemail. Also, as this is a business phone, OP may not have the option of doing anything to cause additional charges to the bill.

getting downvoted because i said most, if not all do? any phone i have ever looked at either in store or my own phone, has had the option to block a number without involving the carrier or having to charge as its an option of the phone. sorry to offend people by posting my opinion about all the phones i've seen.

'call blocker' on android is perfect. I use it to block my dad's number. all it does is give you a silent notification on the notifications bar but you have the option to switch it off. all free.
