    We know how to block incoming calls from annoying 1-800 numbers to Unknows Callers to Private Numbers and maybe a few of our contacts in our phonebook

    So another tip, we can block PIN, SMS, and MMS messages from going through by going OPTIONS > SECURITY OPTIONS > FIREWALL ... then check off all or one box.

    Sometimes we don't want to be disturbed by our friends and relatives and turning off your data would only stop emails from coming. So use wisely otherwise you would miss your important messages.

    How do you block incoming calls on the Blackberry 8830? I have a stalker, and it's getting really annoying to receive private number phone calls OVER< AND OVER AND OVER again.

    If it's not a business line, I'd change the number ($35). Also, speak with your provider, they can get the Police involved. They can record when the calls are made, and where from etc, etc...

    I believe this app is no longer available. I cannot find it anywhere.

    It's still available, I see it currently listed HERE and HERE as well, hope this helps you out.

    PS: Verizon MAY have a policy in place for a FREE number change, I know AT&T does it for free once under the premise of harassment anything after that costs $36

    I wish the software was capable of forwarding different calls to different numbers Since your BB forwards calls to a VoiceMail box anyways, it would be great if you could set it up to say certain #'s went to the phone's VM, certain ones forwarded to your work phone & still other's wouldn't forward anywhere, giving a message "this customer is out of the service area"

    I know this is a pipe dream, but I really don't care about solicitors that leave messages and certain other select people I would prefer if they couldn't leave a message at all. They could call it the Blackberry Bouncer.. The muscle that screens your calls and boots the undesirables out of calling you or leaving a message!

    question. If i set up my phone to block incoming SMS and MMS messages, will i still be charged for them?

    I dont have a text plan so its pay per use...

    Good question. The thing is, it doesn't get forwarded to your BB. In fact you wouldn't even know if you received one unless you go back to the security option and checked the number of blocked messages. Might need to ask provider on this.

    Really good question! I'll test it and see
