Block calls and sms from specified numbers (blacklist)
Need to add a block sender for both calls and sms on a so called SMART phone. Creates a black list of phone numbers.
This feature is friendly to avoid unwanted calls or messages.
For the lumia 800 please include a feature to block calls and sms from specified numbers
Please add a call blocking app.
Call blocking app
I need some application supporting nokia lumia which can blocks calls both incoming and outgoing for some specific no.
Basically the same features as the infamous iPhone App iBlacklist, which gives you the ability to blacklist unwanted calls or sms or whitelist wanted calls or sms, blocking everything else.
is there any app or software to block calls from specific numbers? Or if not, does anyone know if there are any plans to release this type of thing? Most other phones (esp BB and Samsung) have apps or built-in programs on their phones to be able to bar certain numbers, so I was hoping I could do it on my Lumia.
Please create an app like android app to block unwanted calls. PLLLLEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEEE!
Block unwanted calls and text messages from contacts or numbers. N block messages.
I would really like to be able to block calls by phone number. Every other phone I've had allows me to "add to block list"
plz develop a free blacklist app for unwanted call block
Caller ID filtering option - e.g. send to voicemail, block, etc 2. When contact has several phone numbers, to show WHICH number called from.
Create a feature which would allow you to "blacklist" certain phone numbers, text senders, & e-mail addresses.
Create a blocked list of phone numbers from whom I don't want to take calls e.g. tele marketers
To avoid telemarkting and other spam. Since microsoft does not provide any API for it so it should be provided natively in OS.
So,sometimes,i don't wanna to answer that when someone call me . I want filter them.
This feature is now available on certain Windows Phone 8 devices

I USE NOKIA LUMIA 525, HOW TO BLOCK WNWANTED CALL

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!
When finally been repaired filter function calls and sms?
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??
not completed please add to non nokia devices.
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 USE NOKIA LUMIA 530, HOW TO BLOCK WNWANTED CALL
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?
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.
Not available on my HTC One Windows phone. Why not?
How do I block calls on a Nokia Lumia 530
If you block a number on your phone and them delete the contact will the number still be blocked?
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
