Can't do it through Koodo's network. Must do it at the phone. Which phone do you have?

If you have a smartphone, there are apps that will block the number for you, provided your phone is always on.

Currently, only Rogers offers a call blocking feature. [Mentioned so someone at Koodo can put this feature under consideration, and can't say technically not possible ;-) ]

That just sends the calls to voice mail. You'll still hear their voice when you check vm and get their texts; the apps rejects all--calls, texts--completely and you won't get their voice mail either.

I prefer using an App called "Extreme Call Blocker" from the Google Play Store--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
It has some interesting features like "bombing" where you send the blocked # as many TXT as you want like in the old days of "blowing up" someone's pager, hahaha

Two problems with "bombing":

1. You don't know if the person calling you is using a real number, or spoofing someone else's:

2. With all the texts you bombed the caller with, they now have proof of your texts and can file a harassment charge against you with the police.
