Phone call blocking applications have been around for awhile but most of them are a bit expensive. ToySoft just released BuzzOff at a very reasonable $2.99 which performs the basics with an easy interface. It also fits into a beautifully small 35K app size.
From the description:
BuzzOff will block any phone number, block callers with private or unknown callerid, do not allow caller to leave a voice mail. BuzzOff is the only callerID blocking application for the BlackBerry that has Pickup and Hangup feature. This will not allow the caller to leave you a voice mail. The caller will just hear a busy signal or the message from your carrier. You can also select the phone number to block from the CallLog, Messages and AddressBook application. Just select Block Caller from the menu and select the type of block you want.
