Re: How to Block Incoming Phone Calls

Blocking some call is not possible through current Blackberry OS. you can use GSM default of bloacking all incoming calls. However, you can use thrird party software called iBerry Blacklist and White list. Through this apps you can block incoming calls as you wish to.

Re: How to Block Incoming Phone Calls

I have a method that works wonders.  I assign the caller a Custom Phone Tune...MUTE, so when they do call their assigned ring tone doesn't ring at all.


I was very excited when I saw that there was an application that would block incoming calls from a specific caller because I don't want it to even appear in my phone log (which, in and of itself is an aggravation, especially if it's from my ex).  But the iBerry Blacklist Whitelist only does the same thing as assigning the mute ringtone to each individual caller (and my way saves memory since there's no new download).

Hello.

I am wondering if there is a call blocking app that is compatible with the new Curve 8900?  I have heard of Black and Whitelist but it doesn't seem to be upgraded for this model yet.  Any suggestions of a GOOD app for this please??
