Default need to send specific number to voicemail

Please Login to Remove!

I made a big mistake giving my number to someone now I am on overload with phone calls and text messages. How can I send this caller straight to voice-mail? Also does anyone know how to stop sms from a specific person? Does BB have a blocking function? I have a BB 8900 on Tmobile.
Thanks for your help.

Put the person in your contact list and change their ring to mute. When they call your phone will not ring and they will go to voicemail. There are some paid applications where you can have certain numbers go directly to voicemail, but don't have any recommendations as have never used any of them.

Some carriers let you block a number from SMS messages but T-Mobile doesn't offer that. Again there might be some third party applications that will do this, check the app store for some options.
