Block unwanted calls on your mobile phone any network

Blocking unwanted calls from people you hate or from unknown people is the feature I think we should have on our mobile phone by default. I personally tired up with lot of promotional calls from tele-callers. Though many banks & services offers you to register for “Do Not Disturb”, you still receive many calls from other tele-callers. Vodafone was the first to provide “Call blocking system” to help it’s consumers avoid such calls (but at Rs.99/month). But I have not yet heard of similar service by other providers.

Fortunately there is an application which blocks unwanted calls on any network. Epocware Handy’s Blacklist is a series 60 application that blocks unwanted calls. In first run options will be provided for blocking calls from your contact list, recent callers or unknown numbers. It also provided with an option of adding rejected calls into black list automatically. It also keeps log of all blocked numbers for 60 days.

The dis-advantage of software is, It will not notify you when a call is blocked. You have to check your log to know which numbers are blocked. The application is priced $19.95 (Rs.785), I think is the better option to go instead of paying monthly rental to service provider for same. Purchase this application here.

    I don’t think it’s too costly when compared to charges your service provider will charge. Currently vodafone charges 99 rs/month & will become 1188 rs/year.
    But this is one time charge.

    Its always better to have the application installed in your mobile rather than having it in Vodafones server. Buggers will say that our server was down!

    Then this facility must be available in Motorola phones, I was using one sometime back and it had this facility. But it was with limited options.

    Unwanted SMS
    There are a few websites which help in spamming. eg. The site Smsfreedom – http://smsfreedom.com/index.htm – helps the spammers to send spam messages easily and cheaply, the worst part about these SMS is that the actual sender can mask its identity.
    If any authorities are reading this message, please ban the bulk SMS sending websites!

    Yea.. Our service provider is responsible for it and after being registered in DND, if you are getting unwanted calls, then you are liable for receiving a fine of RS 5000 from the service provider.

    Why not try XBLOCKR as it works on multiple moible phones like Nokia, Windows Mobile, Blackberry. I have been using it for last few months and its amazing. When I contacted them saying $ 20 is higher the price. They told me that they have a India price of Rs 349/-
    I feel it is worth paying for such nice features they offer with lifetime license. I am using it on my Nokia E71.

    There is a certain number +919164474004 or 9164474004 and this bastard keeps calling many numbers to see if they are owned by any girls. If this bastard finds a girl’s voice, then he sends messages every morning to make friends with. Later becomes like a parasite. Suck cheap skates should be attrested and fined for so that they dont repeat this. Also these incidents should come to News Paper so that their family members too know how and what character they have reared. Such low class people should also be forbidden to marry from a class family. This phone number was owned by this low class individual as on August/Sept 2010 and the calls were rec’d in Bangalore.
