The App is called "Call Control", it's free from the Android Market or 8$ on-time price from Blackberry App World.

If you have another phone like an iPhone or non-Smartphone, I don't know of an App, sorry. Also, Koodo is unable to block callers from their end.

Hey Lina, if you have a Blackberry or an Android you are in luck! You can download an app called Call Control and block unwanted numbers from calling or texting you. However if you do not want to download this app or you don't have an Android or a Blackberry there unfortunately isn't a way to block unwanted callers from your phone.

I believe the only way to do this is via Jailbrake on the iPhone. If that's not an option she's probably best off changing her phone number.

Hi everyone

I agree with all what was said above regarding blocking unwanted calls. the thing is that koodo cannot block unwanted numbers from his end, but customers can download apps that they can use - I am using a free blackberry apps I can block any number I want . when a blocked number calls me with restricted number activation , BB apps does not block it. so it is not really working 100%

Since he posted that a year ago, I doubt he would respond...

Not too sure if it is available on iPhones but I know you can use it on Android. Try "Mr. Number."

you cant block numbers unfortunately on a talk and text. If you have a smartphone then you can download an app to auto block numbers. But Koodo does not have any feature to block numbers yet.

On the Evergreen, since it's not a smartphone, the only thing you can do to not at least get notified about the call is record a silent ring tone. Save the number in your contacts and assign it the silent ring tone. Next time they call you won't hear about it.
