    You can also try Power Tools

    Power Tools - BlackBerry World

    It includes15+ apps into one like LED, Message Blocker, Sound Profile, Alarms, SMS and Email scheduler, wallpaper changer, system sounds, daily usage tracking and more...

    Power Tools is a good app, but the "Block Calls" function is "Reserved for OS 10.3".

    I did the following (from another Crackberry Forum post)...

    "I made a contact called "Spam". When I get a call from a telemarketer I add it to my spam contact. That contact is set to not ring, not vibrate. It will still show up as a call, but if it is one of the numbers I've entered, the screen shows as "Spam" and I don't answer."

    What if one gets 20+ calls from telemarketers all from different numbers, does it mean you have to create for each? Or add to that contact every time?

    You would just add those numbers to that contact you setup for spam. I now have 7 contacts named spam because after you add too many numbers to a contact it can get a little slow.

    While this work around is better than nothing, I'm looking forward to a real call blocking app that blocks specific numbers in 10.2.1. As mentioned above they may have something for 10.3 now.

    If you are in the US you can always use this:
    National Do Not Call Registry
    (888) 382-1222

    I never have any Telemarketing calls.

    Some carriers offer their own apps for this as well. I use Rogers 1 Number.

    This blocks all numbers only, right? Not what the OP or most of us are looking for.

    Arabianhorse, I have all of my ph#s listed on the National Do Not Registry and that does not stop them at all. Of all of the live telemarketing calls that I've answered and mentioned that I was listed on that registry, not one of these callers look at that list.
    I'm bombarded with an average over 60+ robo, live telemarketer, spoofers and war dial calls a week.
    If I don't pick up, some of them call me 3 to 4 times a day. Then call back the next day or two days later.
    Those callers, I file complaints with the FCC website and that gets some of them to stop others just use a different #.
    When I used my Bold 9900, I used Toysoft's call blocker and that worked great.
    6 months ago I contacted them to find out when they would make one for OS 10 and they said that they were waiting on BlackBerry to give them access.
    Yesterday I went to BlackBerry's site and mentioned the need for a call blocking app (either core or 3rd party).
    Then I looked up Toysoft's Power Tools.
    It's getting mixed reviews. The glowing reviews don't site anything specific about why they app is "so great", but the negative reviews are very specific about what doesn't work with the app.

    There's one that Bla1ze mentioned a while back on twitter, thought it was Blockr, but it could block specific numbers, but they had to be a contact and you had to make sure the phone number was listed in the contact exactly as it showed on the call screen. 10.3 only. I tried it and it worked but it was a pain to manually add all the contacts. I don't know if the idea of adding one contact name and appending all numbers to it would work. Didn't try. But you just can't pick an incoming number from history to block. You had to set up the thing manually first. Better than nothing.

    I actually add all my blocked numbers to contacts under the name SPAM. I have like 6 contacts with that name containing all those numbers - and there's a lot of them.

    Could you let us know the name of the app if you think of it? Blockr appears to block only all calls.

    I looks with 10.3 here now that finally a call blocking app will happen. It is SO needed!

    That's what I thought initially but it blocks text as well.

    I just went to Blackberry and found that they had replied to my inquiry about call blocking with this link to the post that TonyBlaze put up:

    I use Blockr, it works well.

    Blacklist, whitelist, option to block all, option to block all unknown callers.

    Developer updates his app with new features.

    I tried others ad settled on this one.

    Yes it is blockr. I reloaded 10.3 and do it, it does work well and now you can even block from the call log! Good app.
