Phone not recognizing * (star) commands

The most common cause for Call Screen not working is that your phone is set to pulse instead of tone. If touch tone is not activated, the system will not recognize your commands. To fix this:

  1. On your phone, look for a switch that allows you to set your phone to pulse or tone. The switch is typically located on the side of the phone, or sometimes on the bottom
  2. Switch to tone
  3. Try using Call Screening on another telephone in the home
