    Hey all,

    BlackBerry have just approved my application which is an headless Call & SMS blocker and is appropriately named Call And SMS Blocker by Simply Apps available for all devices running 10.3.

    Call And SMS Blocker allows you to create profiles and then activate a profile at the touch of a screen. A profile includes settings such as Block All, Accept Phonebook only and Block Private Number.

    You can also create contacts in a Blacklist which means no matter what profile setting you have chosen if you have enabled Call Block for a Blacklist Contact and they call or if you have enabled SMS Block for a Blacklist Contact and they text you they will be blocked. You can also choose to reply using SMS when Call And SMS Blocker blocks a call or SMS message with a message of your choice.

    As well as Blacklist, you can create Contacts in a Whitelist which allows you to accept calls and SMS messages from that phone number when you have the setting Phonebook Only or Block All selected in the active profile.

    Log view shows you all the calls and SMS messages blocked by Call And SMS Blocker.

    There are also show in Log and Notification options when creating a profile or a Blacklist or Whitelist Contact.

    Any feedback is welcome.

    Thanks for reading.

    Looking forward to that.

    By blacklist, do you mean if i enter number X it will be blocked?

    Also, in the accept incoming calls only, does that mean if caller X is not in my address book they will be blocked?

    Yes, if you add a contact to the Blacklist they will be blocked (There are further settings when adding a blacklist contact to only block calls or only block sms or block both).

    When creating/editing a profile, you can have the profile setting for calls set to..

    Phonebook only - calls will only get through to you if the number calling is in your phone book (or in your whitelist).

    Block all - all calls will be blocked unless they are in your whitelist.

    Block private number - calls from private number will be blocked.

    Profile settings for SMS are very similar.

    Here's a link to the app in app world in case anybody is interested.

    It's available for all devices but they must be running a 10.3 leak as the ability to create such an app only became available for developers in 10.3.

    I am going to add an option in the next release where it will block a number which starts with or ends with or contains the number you add to the blacklist - is that what you mean?

    Small bug

    The 2nd checklist, got no information on it, I assume it means calls

    PS : sorry I'm cropping the image, due to pin watermark

    Edit : my bad, the calls and sms information is there, I guess I'm sleepy LoL

    I had planned to have both call and msg log as options but accessing the call log became a problem as I later found they are not available to access via third party apps as of yet. I will keep an eye out for when they are available to access.

    I got other apps that can add the list from the call logs

    And the permission difference is that app asks permission for : access_pimdomain_personalcalllogs.label

    Could it be the one?

    Very interesting. Can't wait for 10.3 to drop. Thanks for all the hard work. Looks like a fantastic app.

    Thanks for developing this for BlackBerry users. It is a sorely needed app. Is there a limit on the number of blacklist entries?
