    Default Best call blocker app for iphone 4?

    My mom is starting to get unsolicited calls on her new iphone 4. Its an unlisted number but they still are coming through. Can anyone recommend a call blocker app that is relatively simple to set up for a 67 year old non tech savy mom? Any information would be appreciated.

    Without jailbreaking the device I have seen this:

    MCleaner/mAdvLock/mCallShow/mAdvNote/mSecret/mCallerID/mHotContact/mQuikDo/aTimeTool——iPhone Software

    12 bucks ouch but a free trial.

    Thanks for the reply, she won't be jail breaking the device and as she lives far away from me I can't do it for her. I will check the link out when I get home to my puter. Thanks again.

    U need jailbreak to use MCleaner.

    I haven't been able to find a call blocking app in the app store. Since I was already jailbroken I just bought iBlacklist. Been good for me. If you find one in the app store, please let us know

    Was able to find one but the review was horrid. Strange Apple doesn't have more of this type of application in it's app store, seems like something essential.

    I forget the name of it but it's the only one there. I'm a bb user too and wish she went that route as I know the OS and could help her over the phone but she had to have her white iphone I use Call Control and it works like a charm.

    I don't know who your mom's WSP is as you never stated, but most of them have a feature you can add for a few dollars to block numbers. It's usually something along the lines of parental controls. Verizon charges me $4 a month to block up to 30 numbers I think. I was getting up to 10 calls a day from telemarketers and scammers. Since I started blocking numbers, I get maybe one every other week or so. It's well worth it.

    Some WSPs allow you to block a certain number of calls for free. I could block up to 5 for free.
    God save us all. Go Sharks.
