    Default Why would a developer make an app for OS10 that does what Os 10 already does?

    Why sell an app that just sets an existing BB10 feature? Call Blocker
    seems to just do this:

    Am I missing something? And if not, why would CB promote it?

    If you turn off mobile radio, you don't get data services.

    I sure do. Maybe that differs from carrier to carrier but I can turn off one without the other effectively.

    I stand corrected. That setting was only working when I had WiFi on. With it off I have no data. Thus, the value of Call Blocker. Sorry, all.

    This app is still a waste of money as this setting is implemented already in the OS. Open the phone app and go to settings,

    True but I believe that setting is carrier dependant. Whereas the app is not dependant on the carrier....

    Works for me as well on 10.2 official with Telus. Having the ability to set a password is great too. Allows me to turn off call-making capability so if I lend my phone to my girlfriend she can't go making 4 hour international calls for which I pay greatly. Can also block incoming calls, naturally.

    I believe this app would add value to the blackberry if it contained a blacklist approach to number blocking. Even my old LG Viewty enabled me to add contacts to a group with the options to disable SMS/calls.

    To get call blocking with AT&T... you have to go through them and pay $4.99/mo. All apps (so far) are useless!

    Type in a password, you will need it to turn blocking off

    No, it is not that.
    After making up the password, the pop up says the blocking was not set.
