    Any idea if it's possible to block specific callers from calling or messaging you? Or is it strictly 3rd party apps only?

    It's possible that your carrier may offer a blocking alternative; otherwise I think you're stuck with the 3rd party choices.

    Anyway to send this recommendation to blackberry, to incorporate it Into an update. Seems to be the norm on all apple phones and some android phones it would be good if BlackBerry 10 also had a native block caller function.

    Blocking a call has to be done at carrier level, otherwise the phone has to receive the call in order to block it. So it's really not blocking the call, it just isn't notifying you that it's there...

    If you're interested in blocking the numbers from your phone what is your aversion to the 3rd party apps that provide exactly that function? I'm just curious. It's not an attack. The options available in many of the 3rd party apps are far more robust than I've seen on built in android/iPhone DND functions.

    Power Tools has that capability as well as some other apps.

    The best way to block a call is through your carrier. Here in the USA, you usually can go on your carrier site, log into your account, and type in your numbers you want blocked.
    The other option is to use a third party app. I use Blockit. Works good.
