How do I block unknown/private numbers from calling me? As in people who have chosen not to display their phone numbers when calling out? This is an addon offered by many carriers, but it doesn't seem to be one that Koodo offers?

Koodo does not have the capability to block calls.

Could be wrong (but I haven't seen anything to the contrary yet), the built in call blockers don't work with blocked numbers.

Thank you all for your responses...

The built in blockers do not work with blocked numbers no. And though the iPhone (and other) apps exist, it's not what I'm looking for.

Some carriers make it an add on option where when a person with a blocked number calls you, they are told that you do not accept blocked calls so they can either hang up or unblock their number for that specific call.

Does anyone know where I can go to suggest it ask Koodo to implement this add on?

Here's a list of apps available, both free and paid. The issue I've found with most call blocking apps is that they still allow the call to get through. The app merely answers the call and hangs up, plays a busy signal or simply redirects the call to voicemail. TELUS is reportedly working on a call block tool, but for now we're stuck with the apps.

if you block the call does it stop them from leaving messages?

Depends on the phone. Different devices handle the process differently.
