    Preacher2b offered a great suggestion. Call and SMS blocking is but one of the many great features offered up in this "swiss knife" of BB10 apps.

    Options are good though and BBW is loaded with dedicated call/sms blocking apps. Not all offer the dual purpose of blocking calls and SMS; many block only one or the other. The other thing to look for is headless function so the app doesn't have to remain in active frame. Blockr Call Blocker SMS Blocker by Miciniti has all those check boxes filled.

    I've tried several blocking apps but YouMail suffices for my needs in ditching my unwanted calls - whether it's a specific number, unlisted or private. I also enjoy the benefit of individualized outgoing messages to contacts.

    Hello everyone, appreciate the support and responses to my dilemma with blocking telephone numbers and texts. I did download "BlockIT" and seems to work okay for now. I just completed this last evening, so need to give it time.

    BlockIT was working good all weekend, but now since 8:00 this morning, allowed a blocked number through and their text, as well? Do they have a website that covers everything involving this APP?

    I welcome all responses...

    By any chance, does your service provider offer that? I have Verizon, which offers:

    How's the new app working for you? I've been using PT for a few years... since I put it on my Q10. Got it for my wife and mother as well, set it up too.

    Works great, still for blocking calls and texts and emails. Other uses as well, but I'm not trying to sell it, simply to say it still works for me and worth the price that I paid.
