        The call+SMS filter on my Lumia 640 XL doesn't quite work correctly. I have it set to "block withheld numbers", but it's blocking SMSes from my bank (and others) that come through with a Sender ID instead of a number. This means the filter is blocking it because it thinks the number is withheld!
        The logic of the filter is therefore flawed. When an SMS comes in, the filter should say "if it has no number, AND no Sender ID, then block, otherwise allow". Clearly the "AND no Sender ID" bit is completely missing from the filter's logic! Who wrote that code, and why didn't they test it properly?
        I've had to turn off the "block withheld numbers" option so I get SMSes with a Sender ID, but this means that calls from "withheld numbers" also get through... which is ridiculous!

        No one seem to be responding to our needs. I've now had to upgrade just so I can block unwanted calls. Not good. How can you say it's closed when so many of us still have issues??

        Angie I spoke to my mobile service provider and advised that I was on Nokia lumina 800 on windows 7 and they advised me to down loaded an app called true caller it's also free. Maybe worth a go.

        I'm on windows 7 with Nokia Lumia 800. Can anyone tell me how to block unwanted calls etc. I have no options on phone. Please help.

        When will this be available on the rest of the windows 8 phones? I'm tired of being harassed.

        We need a feature in 'Starts With' so dat we can block irritating IVR calls from our network companies...

        I use windows 7 Nokia lumia 800 how do I block nuisance calls?

      • psseuropsseuro commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A much more better call/sms blocking feature is coming in Windows Mobile 10. I know this is no consolation now...the current offering leaves little to desire. But then again, "half bread is better than none"...

        Have discovered cannot block unwanted callers on Nokia 710, seriously, do not, under any circumstances buy this phone, the zune 'must have' is ridiculous. Getting rid of it asap.

        I am under the impression that this should not be marked completed. Maybe half-assed completed but not completed. The request was not for "certain" phones but for Windows 8 phones. Wake up Microsoft...you are going to lose anyone using a windows phone with this lackadaisical type of support.

        If you block a number on your phone and them delete the contact will the number still be blocked?

        Hi Admin,
        I appreciate that you have added basic Spam Call/SMS blocker.
        But adding numbers one by one doesn't help much.
        We need pattern based filters.
        Say block number Start from +919999XXXXXX
