I went round and round with customer service. The last e-mail I received was that this was going to be a future feature with out any release date. I didn't check the message boards to see if other users had some of the same complaints. I do have to say I get less random calls after using the blacklist and community blacklist. I was wondering if anyone else has had a experience like me? The number that showed up on the CID was 222-555-7777.
Yes. Even with blackists and community blacklist turned on, the forged caller ID's will still get through and be bogus numbers like that.

I know how blacklists work. My point was they should already be blacklisting invalid NPA's and not completing the call. This was not a forged caller ID information as you have assumed. The number was from a NPA (Area Code) that has not been assigned by NANPA (North American Numbering Plan) and NXX (Exchange) 555 (informational number) that has no assignment and is listed by NANPA as disputed. I.E. the number will not be completed by any telephone carrier in the United States.
