Advanced Call Manager is one of the most feature full call managers and blockers for BlackBerry. I use the app on and off whenever I get annoying callers that I just want to go away. The app is usually super pricey at $25.50 but for today only they have cut the price by 50% to a reasonable $12.75. The app also has a free trial that lets you handle 30 calls so you can see what it is like.
From the description:
Are you busy, constantly in important meetings and discussions? Is your mobile always ringing at a bad moment?
All you need to be in control is the Advanced Call Manager! It will handle the incoming calls for you and personalize your approach to the callers – play an instant busy tone / drop the call, send a kind SMS, mute the ringer or pick up and hang up the phone.
ACM handles your incoming calls with a personalized approach to different callers – it accepts, rejects, sends a personalized SMS, mutes the ringer or instantly picks up and then hangs up. You can easily save different profiles and schedule them according to time or location.
With Advanced Call Manager you can organize your phone book into custom lists like Black list (people you don’t like to disturb you), White list (important people who are "allowed" to call you) or any other custom list (a very special group could be your family to which you may wish to send a personal SMS if they call during a business meeting).
ACM enables you to set different actions for the groups you have defined – you can accept, reject, send personalized SMS, mute the ringer or pick up and hang up. With SMS templates you can set special messages for each group very easily.
The Advanced Call Manager lets you tune your mobile into several modes:
- Accept all calls (inactive)
- Reject all calls
- Accept Phonebook only
- Reject from black list (you have to define the list in advance)
- Accept from white list (you have to define the list in advance)
- Reject all + custom action (e.g. send SMS to your wife or girlfriend if she calls)
Supported Reject Actions:
- Send busy tone / drop
- Reply by SMS
- Mute the ringer
- Pick up and hang up
