    Is there a way that I can block incoming private callers? I have the 8330 thru sprint. Please let me know.

    I don't think this can be done through a cell phone still. I've called before and asked if the person can be required to dial *82 and no dice. They still haven't came up with this feature for cell usage yet. I just simply don't answer private calls no matter what. But I feel you on this issue.

    I also have the 8330, and that would be a great feature for RIM to add to their devices. Reject anonymous (private) calls. I do the same thing, if I don't know who's calling, I hit the ignore button.

    Isn't it more of a problem that really only the carrier can address though? Because let's say we had the option on our phones to block private numbers. Basically it would just lead the person calling straight to your VM. But if the carrier blocks them for you, they would get the operator saying "this person does not accept incoming calls from blocked numbers. Please hang up and dial *82."

    Not to bring ya down but that is not correct. I have a Samsung A737 Red which is my old device that can. And in fact not only could it block restricted numbers, but I could also create a reject list. With no problem.

    No prob.

    Thing I don't get is why couldn't they get this set up for blackerrys or even smartphone as a whole. They can for lesser "tech" phones....

    On my old Motorola RZR had that option of only accepting calls from people in my address book, one would think that a smartphone company would set this option in somewhere on theirs heh.

    Never mind, I found it on T-Mo's website; it's actually 3rd party software.
