Block Unknown Call / SMS

hi,

 

Just bought BB Z10 lately.

 

Wonder is Z10 can block unknown or specific number ?

 

In Android ICS, there is an option "Reject All Call" in People.

 

Can someone please guide me how or any apps that use in Z10 OS?

Re: Block Unknown Call / SMS

Hello kfteng,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.

 

Blocking specific phone numbers for SMS messages is currently an unsupported feature on the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone.

 

Thank you.

Re: Block Unknown Call / SMS

There are ways of blocking certain calls built into the Z10.

By using parental controls (so underrated on BlackBerry 10) you can block calls and/or texts from people not in your contact list.
In effect what this does is send the caller direct to voice mail if you have it on or cancels the call if you don't use voicemail - very handy for avoiding the deluge of fake orange broadband calls and ppi claims companies! Lol.

There are also a couple good text blocker apps on blackberry world. Some have blacklists / white lists and even auto responders - " stop texting me! " etc

Hope that helps!

This will send any not in your contacts straight to voice mail if you have it set up. Or cancel the call if not.
