Tashanna let me know about a new free application from Fabian called CallsBlocker. It is a very useful app that lets you block unwanted calls based on quite a few settings. You can block numbers from your address book, call logs, or based on certain rules. For example, you can block unknown, private, or withheld numbers or 1-800 numbers or any other prefix. The application is freeware but Fabian is accepting donations at this link.
NOTE: The app says it only supports the Storm but it works just fine on my Bold. Let me know if it works on your device!
From the description:
This is an application that allows the user to block unwanted calls or calls from unknown, private or withheld numbers. Through this you won’t get bugged anymore by advertisement or unwanted calls. Another feature is that you can block a set of numbers that starts with specific digits (e.g. all 190 numbers). You can even choose numbers from any contact in the address book and simply add them to the list of blocked numbers through one click.
If you are in the Call Log and want to add a number from there, you just click Menu -> ‘Add Number to blocked List’ and then the number will be added to the list of blocked numbers. No need for the long copy-paste procedure.
The interface is very easy to handle and manageable even for new Storm Owners.
