We need a call blocker ASAP

How can a supposed enterprise phone doesn't have a blacklist option ? With the software as it is, is not possible to even block private numbers !! Is nuts !

Every other smartphone out there has this functionality, windows phone, android, ios and even old nokia symbians.

There are thousands of call blocking apps in BB market, but they are all SCAMS (as the 80% of BB market stuff), as i know the developers can't create a "blacklist" app because the lack of API tools, but why blackberry doesn't have this functionality native built yet ?
In parental control there is an option to block all the non-contacts calls, so that must compare the incoming number to an array of knows numbers and if it doesn't match it hung ups the call, how difficult would it be to make that array customizable and write to the "blackberry hub" about the blocked calls ? I believe is a matters of a few hours to have something like that ready for production, why isn't native available yet ? i really can NOT understand it, you are losing clients because of this.

As you can see this is an extremely popular request there are millions of threads talking about the lack of this functionality in all blackberry forums, users are begging to have this function since the beginnings of 2013, many of them are so mad about the lack of it that changed their phones to non-blackberry ones

Here are some links of the thousands you might find in a google/yahoo search

Please make this functionality available as soon as possible, don't lose more clients, thank you.

Re: We need a call blocker ASAP

Yes, this is incredibly lame there is no call blocking native to BlackBerry Z10 and yet another reason why I will likely go back to Android or try an iPhone.
