(By the way, with 603 you are not only going to prevent someone on the
living room from answering the call, but you are going to prevent it from
going to voicemail. I guess you do that only when you see the caller ID
and you don't want to communicate with them at all.)

But what if you have invited me to stay at your house for a few days and
I have therefore configured my number to ring both my mobile and your
house phone? When you reject the call from your bedroom, you will also
prevent me from from answering my call on my mobile!
