Salut Maude! Ton téléphone peut faire cela tout seul :) Dans tes options, cherche celle qui s'appelle "Numéros bloqués" ou quelque chose du genre (ça change d'un cell à l'autre). Ensuite, tu entre le numéro. Quand ce numéro t'appelle, l'appel est automatiquement rejeté!

Rogers offers this on the network side. If you have a smartphone, there are apps that can do this for you for a one time fee, and some might even be free. They'll either automatically forward the call to voice mail & delete texts or play a prerecorded message. Of course, your phone has to be on for the latter.

I use "Extreme Call Blocker" from the Google Play Store. Other than the usual blocking options, it also has an option to spam the caller back, LoL. I like the App & that feature is good for pay-back.

If you have an Android device, you can block unwanted calls right from the device itself without having to download an app. The feature is accessed by tapping the Phone icon, then tap the Menu softkey to the left of the Home button. Tap Call settings and Call rejection should appear at the top of the menu. Works on the Galaxy S2x, Galaxy Ace 2x and should work on other Galaxy models like the S3 and S4.

Very good option, does require that the phone be running ICS or later though.

True. However the S2x (I purchased from Koodo) had 4.0.3. (ICS) already installed even though Samsung mentions that the S2x initially starts off with Gingerbread 2.3. The Ace 2x ships from the factory with ICS 4.0. When I received mine, it was actually running 4.0.3 and an update brought it to 4.0.4. Excellent point though.

Carriers can and might block the default way on the Android device. Not sure if this is the case with Koodo, but blocking a call means not even knowing that person called. With the default tool, it sends the call to voice mail, if not carrier blocked. You'll hear the voice and the stamp of the person each time they leave a voice mail. Do you really want that?

Other apps allow the call to quickly answer and disconnect, so you know the person didn't call. This may eat up your bucket of minutes if your plan isn't unlimited or even incoming.

If the calls are threatening in nature, you are then suggested to file a report with the RCMP (telecommunications laws fall under Federal jurisdiction), and seek the advice of the reporting officer of what to do.
