Can I restrict outgoing calls from my iSatPhone Pro?
Outgoing calls can be restricted from the phone using a feature called Fixed Number Dialling (FND) which allows you to restrict the number(s) dialed to a certain country, area code, or specific phone number(s).
Fixed number dialling (FND)
When Fixed number dialling is activated, the user is limited to dialling or texting only numbers stored in the FND list. The default setting is off.
Activating and de-activating fixed number dialling
Select Menu > Settings > Security, highlight Fixed dialling from the list and press the centre selection key. Select On to activate and press the centre selection key or OK. You will be prompted to enter your PIN 2 code. The default PIN 2 is 9999. See Setting up SIM PIN 2 code on page 46 of the User Manual for more information. Contact your service provider if this code was not specified or was reset at purchase.
To add a number to your list, select Menu > Contacts > FND list and press the centre selection key. Press Options and select either New FND contact or Copy from phonebook. You will then be prompted for the PIN 2 code.
FND list entries are stored on your SIM card. Only one name and one contact number can be stored for each entry.
Fixed number dialling can restrict your phone to a certain prefix, as well as individual phone numbers.
To limit outbound calls or text messages to a specific country or range of corporate numbers, create an FND list entry with the international prefix and local prefix you wish to allow, followed by the correct number of remaining digits replaced by question marks. Press the * key twice to enter a question mark.
Example: To limit calls to UK landlines, create an FND list entry: +44??????????. Substitute any number in place of the ? symbols while dialling or sending a message.
When fixed number dialling is activated, your phone still enables numbers stored in other areas of Contacts to be viewed.
Using fixed number dialling
Select Menu > Contacts > FND list and the contact. Select Call or Send message from Options.
To send email messages when fixed number dialling is activated, the message centre number should be added to the FND list. See Message settings on page 28 in the User Manual for more information on finding your message centre number.
Note: Fixed number dialling, Call barring and Call divert does not prevent emergency calling.
