You can block calls that make you spend a lot of money, such as international calls, expensive SMS services or calls to 090x numbers. Convenient, especially with children at home!
You can block and unblock standard calls and text messages with your mobile phone. Follow these easy steps:

Everything about Third party services.
This service remains active, even when abroad.
Anyone can receive fraudulent calls once in a while. Many BASE customers have notified unwanted calls from an international number that appear to be fraudulent. Making calls to unknown foreign numbers can make your phone bill higher than expected or considerably reduce your call credit.
BASE has immediately blocked the numbers used as part of this IT fraud. In addition, we have taken every possible measure to avoid any subsequent damage.
Finally, we would like to give you a tip to help you recognize suspicious calls and avoid traps:
- The best way to protect yourself against these calls remains: do not pick up or return the call!
- Do not return calls to unknown foreign numbers. Numbers starting with +870, +871, +872, +873, +874, +881, +882 connect you to a satellite and are subject to higher charges.
