Thanks Arne and JJ... useful info.If I get a call from a number in the Blacklist, do I get charged for that? I guess no.
If I the call sequences through a PRESS KEY call control to a HANGUP control, do I get charged for that? I guess yes.
Davesnothere, I knew to look for the checkbox based on having previously seen a post by you. Even then I did not find it immediately when I went to look.
AFAIK, generally yes that CNAM will be charged on the PRESS KEY (the incoming call itself may be free, depending on your plan), as you HAVE to enable the line to be picked up in order for PRESS KEY to work at all.
However, even THEN, there would be no CNAM charge if the caller is in your Contacts List (according to JJ's post below), and apparently the Blacklist is part of the C L, so it will qualify too, at least on the 2nd and further times that a telemarketer (for example) calls from a particular number, assuming that you Blacklisted them promptly after the first time that they called.
And the info which you learned from me earlier, I most likely gathered from Arne - having HIM around here pretty much makes up for whatever info is missing and/or confusing in the public part of the Anveo site, as well as his advice about their portal, such as regarding 'Call Flows'.
So JJ, you are saying that the CONTACT LIST is boss over the CNAM lookups then, and that it would save me a few pennies to setup and maintain one, even if I do not use it for a Whitelist/Blacklist or other call routing ? - ANSWERED NOW, SEE ABOVE paragraphs.
[I was originally unsure whether or not a lookup is performed (and a charge levied) for numbers in your Contact List (Address Book), even when you have CNAM lookups enabled.]
BTW, some of us are aware that Canada just stopped distributing shiny new pennies this month. EDITED
to take into account JJ's reply to me, and to improve my grammar/spelling.
