It is disturbing, it is torturing, you are totally pissed off. it is helpless, right? Well, if you are a Windows Mobile user, there is one way out.

Pocket Call Blocker is a very easy-to-use application especially designed for Windows Mobile Phones. you can use it to block unwanted incoming calls. You simply add blocking calls to the list. You can block calls by specific numbers, wildcard numbers, anonymous numbers, category numbers etc. Moreover, Pocket Call Blocker can also block text messages from a number of a group of numbers.

For example, to block any phone number containing 9, enter *9*;
To block any phone number begin as 9, enter 9*;
To block any phone number end as 9, enter *9;

As with the other app this is not free the "free download" is a 7 day trial and after that it will cost you $19.00

@ bellpen2 please do not search for old topics just to advertise your app, these have now been removed. One post to advertise is enough, more may be classed as spam.

Mobile subscribers can register their telephone number with the National Customer Preference Register by dialing a toll free number 1909 and by sending an SMS to 1909. You can then set your preference either via an IVR or with the help of a customer care executive. For registering and setting up the preference via SMS, the SMS message has to be sent in the following format to the number 1909.SMS “START 0” to 1909 for fully blocked option i.e. blocking all the calls and messages

SMS “START <option>” to 1909 for partial blocking.
