blackberry curve. I'm not sure if you need more info than that. Cellcom is my provider.
Cell Phone Technician: Mike, Cell Phone Technician replied 8 years ago
Sorry for the delay, somehow your question got lost in the pile.... I'm terribly sorry! There is an application called Call Blocker that you can use to do this. There are other apps as well, but you'll need to choose one of these applications to do the blocking. There is no user available blocking on the device itself or at the carrier level. Call Blocker is the only one that I've used and recommend so I can't speak for the other applications, but this one certainly does what you want. You have the option of having the application disconnect the call, OR send them to voicemail, so it will do what you want as far as preventing the call from going to voicemail. Here is the link to the page: BlackBerry Call Blocker.



Regards,

Mike
