It would be nice to be able to block a specific phone number because sometimes I get phone calls from telemarketers, and sometimes other spam, not to mention people from our past we don't want to hear from anymore.

There are lots of free apps that alreay allow you to block numbers. Here is one if you have an Android phone. https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

Unfortunately it isn't that simple. Koodo can't block a # from calling you on their end.

However, you have 2 options:

1. I don't know what phone you have, but search your OS's market (App Store, Google Play, BB World, Windows Marketplace, etc.) for a number blocker. You might still get notifications about the phone # that tried to reach you but at least you can have it rejected.

2. Change your phone #. That way the undesirable callers won't be able to reach you anymore.

Save the numbers as contacts and name them "DO NOT ANSWER" if your phone doesn't have the feature built in or your app store doesn't have a good blocking app
