Call Blocking On Windows Phone

Recommended Posts

Joe_Miner

Is anyone aware of App(s) available for call Blocking on Windows Phones?

 

I have read that Nokia is pushing it out as an update but that carriers (like AT&T wireless) have been slow (I'm shocked) in adopting it http://betanews.com/2013/08/09/nokia-adds-call-and-sms-blocking-to-part-of-its-lumia-windows-phone-8-lineup/

 

iOS 7 has call blocking now http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2013/09/iphone-call-block-faq/ so I was hoping that Windows would have it one way or the other.

If you're looking at your call history, just press and hold on the number you want to block.

In the settings on your phone you can view all blocked numbers.

I don't see this feature on my 8X. If I hold down a number the only option is to delete from the history.

If you scroll all the way down in settings, do you see "Call+SMS filter"?

See attached image for reference.

Apparently, AT&T in Springfield Illinois doesn't have any of the Windows or Nokia updates -- was just at their main store and none of their Nokia's & Win8 phones had the blocking feature and they had no idea when it would be available -- They didn't even know what I was talking about so I showed them this thread and your screen pic but it was no use.  *#($&@  I was ready to buy!

 

Now, their iOS7 phones have it -- they could show me that.

 

Have to think about this.

      Okay so today Best Buy opened up pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 920! I hopped in my car and drove down to ours and got my self one pre-ordered.
       
      One thing though, if you pre-order at the store, it is only the matte black one. I was really wanting the cyan one but black will do. That was my second choice.
       
      On the otherhand, if you pre-order online, you can choose which color. Weird, I know... Colors you can choose from are: Black, Red, Yellow, Cyan, White.
       
      As of right now, AT&T has not started pre-orders. I called and verified that with them.

      It appears that Best Buy underestimated the demand for the Lumia 920. http://www.wpcentral.com/att-nokia-lumia-920-preorders-sell-out-online

      Okay so now that the Lumia 920 has been released, I was wanting to start a thread about what cases there are for the phone. Feel free to post links that way people who have this phone (me included ) can come here and get case ideas.
       
      I'll go first:
