    From the Number Pad, pull down top of screen and select settings icon. This gets you a list of settings, Select Call Blocking. Wait for upload. Change a setting and the device asks for a password. Enter a password and then it comes back to say that Call Blocking has not been set. 1) What password is it looking for? 2) How can I block single callers instead of all calls?

    This is Carrier option (not device. It's same other phones).
    1. Password could be SIM card PIN.
    2. There is some blacklist apps for that need.

    Individual number blocking would be useful. I've had a look in BlackBerry World and can't see anything like that.

    I'm having the exact same message when trying to block all incoming calls.
    I called the carrier and they said they are not responsible for any of the dysfunctioning. They suggested to call RIM technical support.
    If you have an answer to this mystery, I believe you'll share - as shall I-

    I am using the above method for call blocking (call silencing is a more appropriate description), and while it works there are several drawbacks:
    - you need to setup a silent mp3 file on your device - this can be beyond many userss system literacy
    - there is no silencing the first call from a new telemarketing number; you have to deal with that call
    - each new telemarketing number has to be added as a contact then set to the silent tone
    - telemarketing numbers accumulate quickly and start to fill the contacts
    - one needs a system of naming the silenced contacts to identify them, and send them to the bottom of the contact list, for example, ZZZSPAM001, in the company name
    - this method does not work for Private Number/Unidentified Caller where no number is displayed - a common ploy used by telemarketers

    The opposite approach is one I saw in an earlier post, which is to use the Parental Controls to block all calls except for those in the contact list. I tried this, and a call from a number not in my contacts went directly to voice mail.
    I may switch to this method, but my main concern is whether I might miss a time-sensitive call because the caller isn't in my contacts.

    My conclusion: BB10 badly needs a robust call blocker.
