Any charge to *67 on phone?
I believe this is to block your number from others.
Cellphone or landline.

However - Rogers Home Phone subscribers are noticing an upsetting charge on their monthly bills starting in January. I haven't got mine yet, but from posts on other sites, Rogers Home Phone is now charging $0.95 per use when you dial *67.
Rogers has confirmed (not posted on their website yet) via email that this is now going to be a standard charge unless you subscribe to their $4/month plan to permanently block your number.
Isn't there some regulation that makes them required to provide *67 for free? I'm trying to find it. A complaint was put into the CRTC but they have responded that they have no jurisdiction over Rogers Home Phone because they are classified as a Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs).
There was a ruling by the CRTC that says Bell must provide *67 free of charge but apparently Rogers is exempt from this and is now charging as of this month (with no notice to customers).
Is there anything that prevents them from being able to do this?

They have always charged for *69 but without any notice for some inexplicable reason, they are now charging $0.95 per use for *67 to block your number on a per call basis and this has been confirmed via email from a Rogers representative.

We have the POTS from Rogers. We were former Sprint customers and automatically were transferred to Rogers when they bought Sprint. They keep trying to get us to switch but we aren't interested. However if they continue to charge for *67 they are the only landline telephone company that is doing this and we will be switching to another company.
