Re: CALL BLOCKING

Welcome to the forums.

 

Can you be a bit more specific, what challenges are you facing and what problems with call forwarding?

Re: CALL BLOCKING

There are some telephone numbers disturbing my privacy and I do not know how to go about blocking calls from those lines on my blackberry Z10. The only option I see is blocking ALL calls which will not help my purpose. I need to be guided on how to block these telephone numbers from placing successful calls to my line. I also need guidance on how to forward incoming calls to another telephone number whenever such is desirable. Thank you. John

Re: CALL BLOCKING

Okay, there is no individual call blocking on BB10.

As a suggestion I suggest you contact your Service Provider and see if they can help.
If not you can change the number's phone ring to something that indicates it's a bad number and ignore.

Re: CALL BLOCKING

Save the number in your contacts and name it something like "spammer".

Go to the number in your contacts, and edit it. Scroll down to the bottom - you can now customize ring tones and notifications.

Click on "Phone Calls".

Either switch "Tone", "Vibrate" and "LED" to None, or switch All Alerts to "Off". Remember to save the profile.

 

Not perfect, but at least it should shut the phone up.
