A battery pull did the trick. Working now. any ideas?
A couple of questions:
1) The instructions for the smart dial rule state the following: Format is <prefix> and/or <country code> and/or <area code> followed by any number.
The order is confusing to me. Say i want to block calls to a number (767-213-4432) or several numbers. If i create a rule as
a) to block all 213 prefixes, it does not work
b) to block asll 767 area codes, it works..
c) or i can block all 767213 numbers. it works.
so my point is, i think you need to maintain the order from left to right. which is not what the instrucitons say.
2) For the above to work, i have to remove the country code which was set to +1 under the BB Smart Dialing features (options menu in call log screen).
If i keep set to +1 which i like it to be there for obvious reasons, then non of the examples above work and the only to block the call is to block numbers starting with 1767213
