Text Message Blocking Added to Free Mr Number App

Call block Mr Number is a slick and free (as in beer) app that lets you block calls on your BlackBerry. They just updated the app to also allow you to block text messages which is a nice perk. Mr Number is a very polished app especially when you consider that the app is free. The app even has its own sort of intelligence that blocks telemarketers based on their spam call patterns. They get over 2,000 reports a day about telemarketers and debt collectors and use it to automatically block spam calls on your BlackBerry.

Other features include:

  • Choose how to handle blocked calls (send to voicemail or hang up)
  • Automatically block tens of thousands of known telemarketers – list updated daily
  • Block individual phone numbers, a contact, an entire area code, or the world
  • Block private and restricted numbers
  • Customizable whitelist: make sure the right people always get through
  • History of every call blocked and why
  • Notifications of blocked calls in your inbox (optional)
  • Big easy on/off button in case you change your mind

You can pick up the free Mr Number Call Block app at this link in App World. Thanks for the tip Tashanna! via BBCool

  1. This is great it can help with the end user annoyance, but the SMS is actually still delivered. Folks hoping this will help them avoid charges for incoming texts, it won’t.

  2. I will put it to the test. I have unlimited everything but these spam texts are getting to me.
