Default Blocking a Telephone Number

Please Login to Remove!

I have the 9530 Storm, and I would like to block a telephone number(s) from coming in. Is there a way. I know I can block sms, e-mail etc but I'm not sure about a telephone call.

Another alternative would be to add that phone number to your Contacts, then set the custom ringtone volume to silent, the LED and Vibrate to Off.

I use Cerberus Call Filter, it only allows you to use either a blacklist or a whitelist (not both at the same time). It works pretty well for what I want it to do.

If you are on Verizon you can block up to 5 phone numbers for free from calling or texting you. Set up online @ verizonwireless.com.

Log in, go to My Services tab, click on Verizon Safeguards and then Spam Controls.
