    A call blocker app is one of the apps I miss most from my 9900. Hopefully, one will be released soon.

    Remember that there is no current support in Blackberry 10 for background or "headless" apps. The kinds of apps that provide continuous monitoring or filtering of activity all need to be running continuously on the device, and at present that requires them running as a visible "active frame". Worse, if the phone gets rebooted either by you or does so by itself, these sorts of apps all have to be manually re-started or they won't perform their function.

    So I think that's probably why we haven't seen many of these sorts of utilities yet. The "headless apps" feature is on the roadmap to be included in BB10 but no firm target date for that has been announced yet.

    I asked the developer of an excellent "call Filter Pro" and this was a response I got back from them.

    "Not until BlackBerry release the phone apis."

    So, there folks...

    Its Blackberry who has been holding this up. Seems something fundamental to BB10 though, and I do not expect BB to release any kind of APIs any time soon.

    The upcoming OS 10.3 series has finally added some API's to allow call blocking, among other things.

    See the first test app here:
