Calling restrictions pertain to limitations placed on outgoing calls to specific phone numbers or regions. These restrictions can be implemented through a call blocking service. If you encounter a message stating “calling restrictions prohibit dialing,” it may indicate that you are outside your plan’s coverage area or that your calling plan imposes restrictions on roaming or calls beyond your local area.
Additionally, the person you are trying to call might have configured call blocking features that prevent calls from particular numbers. In some instances, malicious individuals may use calling restrictions to harass others over the phone.
