Blocking Unwanted Calls with Touch Pro

About once a week I get a call from the same number. Everytime I answer the call no one is there. I am guessing it is some idiot with a robo dialer program. Happened again last night and I am annoyed.

Any solutions for blocking unwanted calls on the touch pro? I read somewhere you can setup your phone to except only calls in the address book...is this true? Any other solutions?

I'm using magicall to block calls from certain numbers. It works great.

Edit: there's also a free program called callfirewall. I haven't tested it, so I can't comment on how well it works. Call Firewall V 1.3 Out Now...freeware

There is a free app called "Call Firewal" that works great.

Re: Blocking Unwanted Calls with Touch Pro

Magical is AWSOME! not only does it block calls but filters sms as well. it can also forward all notifications to another device.

EXAMPLE

I spent all day helping a friend move to a new house. I didnt want my bulky pro hanging out and getting bumped around. So I set a few rules and all missed calls and text were sent via sms to my Touch that was in my back pocket! So I was able to respond timely to missed events. Even has a time scheduling option.

Re: Blocking Unwanted Calls with Touch Pro

How about a program like this for non-windows phones?
