    Use a call block app, has the added advantage that most of the known telemarketer numbers are already in a database and blocked. Not sure how that database works outside of N.A.
    Also blocks any call where caller ID has been turned of.
    I'm using 'Mr Number',

    Thank you, will give it a go.

    I thought this would result in using a different contacts and dialler program. I want to stick with BlackBerry apps where possible.

    Just curious.
    Were you able to get that done while keeping the stock dialer app?

    Most, if not all of the call block apps work with whatever dialer you happen to be running.

    Is there an API that allows an App to answer and hang up on a blocked caller so they don't reach your voice mail?

    Not that I'm aware of, doesn't mean there are't any. The regular call block apps disconnect before the caller gets to VM.
    I'm assuming you are asking that some sort of message to be played before disconnecting.

    What I think he's trying to do is supervise the call (so the other end shows it answered) then immediately drop it.

    An app can easily do that if it has the appropriate permissions to manipulate the phone status. It will likely cause it to count as a one minute call for billing purposes tho so if you don't have unlimited calling you could get severely hammered.
