Default block number

Please Login to Remove!

I keep getting a call from one telemarketer every day. Oddly enough they don't block the 800# it originates from. Is there any way with the curve to take a specific number and block it so NO action takes place, i.e. the phone does not ring and does not go into voice mail?

Thanks

They're not taking any new customers at the moment?

There used to be an alternative for BlackBerry where you could purchase an app to block calls, but once the os was updated to 4.2, the developerdidn't upgrade the app. The app was called Berry Blocker.

Well, for me the going to VM is part of the problem, I want something as I originally posted that causes the call to be ignored completely; no ring, no voicemail, nada.

Thanks
