    I have been using this for quite sometime now. It just keeps getting better due to the developers drive to keep on improving an already great product.

    I found this app when CallFilter stopped development for the treo 680. Im posting this info since I dont seem to read people on the forum using it. So what does it do?

    Read below:

    Application Description

    Call Block is a simple yet effective tool to block unsolicited incoming calls. Now you do not need to turn off your phone just to avoid unnecessary interruptions. Just leave it to Call Block to filter all your incoming calls and SMSes.

    Select the appropriate Call Block modes like block on, temporary block off or block all calls to suit different situations.

    Uses 'Background Blocking' method that does not interrupt your work while you use your phone. Conserve battery power without waking your phone from doze mode when blocking calls.

    Call Block also supports wildcard '*' pattern blocking. You can configure Call Block to filter out incoming calls beginning or ending with certain numbers.

    Features
    - Call Block Mode - Choose modes like 'Enable Call Block', 'Disable Call Block' or 'Block All'.
    - Auto Mode Switching (AMS) - Preset to automatically switch between Call Block modes at scheduled time.
    - Background Blocking - Silently block calls without interruption when you use your phone. Does not wake your phone unnecessarily when blocking calls.
    - Block List - User friendly block list maintenance. Lookup and add from Contacts database into block list.
    - Allow List - Add VIP numbers so that they can get in touch with you anytime regardless of Call Block Mode.
    - Group Blocking - Ability to block group of callers based on Contacts category.
    - Block Unknown Callers - Block incoming numbers not in your Contacts list.
    - Block Private Number - Option to block incoming calls with no identity.
    - Wildcard Number Blocking - Block incoming calls beginning or ending with pre-defined numbers.
    - Filter Blocked Caller's SMS - Choose to ignore or delete those annoying SMSes!
    - Personalized Ring/SMS Tones - Set customize Ring/SMS tones for individual caller or caller group and use tones to identify caller (MP3 ringtone is available for Treo 650 and later models only).
    - Block Notification - Get instant alert and/or LED notification on blocked calls.
    - Call Logging - View blocked calls detail so you know who and when the call was blocked.
    - Compatiblity - Supported call recording software: CallRec and RecorderX. (Other call recording software support: Please contact us for compatibility fix)

    Get a copy of our Online User Guide (686Kb) here http://www.wishsolutions.com/Call%20...er%20Guide.doc to quickly guide you how to setup the software and stop those annoying calls and SMSes from reaching you!

    Note:
    -----
    - MP3 ringtone is available for Treo 650 and later models only. Compatibility for 3rd party ringtone manager has been discontinued.
    - Some mp3 file may cause your phone to freeze when receiving an incoming call. Please check our FAQ at http://wishsolutions.com/faq.html for details and solution.
    - Some third party applications may interfere with Call Block’s SMS Ignore/Delete functions. Please contact us and provide list of conflicting third party applications for compatibility fix.
    - For Treo 650 users, please apply latest firmware from Palm if Call Block does not run on your phone.
    - Please install Call Block into phone's main memory only. Call Block is not designed to run from SD card.




    I hope I can get Wang to coordinate with Jeff Gibson to make this work with ProfileCare. The mp3 ringtone also lets the treo vibrate when its muted. Currently only MP3 files up to 128 bitrate is supported.

    Yepper, a great application. However, it crashes on my MRd Sprint Treo 700p when TakePhone is enabled.

    I've just installed it on my 680 (with TAKEphONE) and...no problems at all. I love this app. I registered it after testing it for 30 minutes.

    I like it a lot too BUT the only problem there is no way to block someome sms & allow their phone call. it's either block both sms & call or accept both. I have some people who call me non stop & I want to block it. but it is ok for them to text me. once they add this, it will be perfect for me.

    One question on SMS blocking: what's the difference between "Ignore message" and "Delete Message"?

    If you set it to block a caller if you then select show message rather then ignore or delete for the SMS then you still receive their texts.

    I tried this app and loved it until....
    Using an MP3 off of the card as a ringtone, you can not silence the ring with the side buttons on an incoming call. That is a must for me!

    Emailed Wang about this thread with some of the suggestions/comments you guys dished out. We'll hear from him pretty soon.

    Hi guys, thanks for the feedback. Hopefully I can fix some of the Call Block limitation you brought up in version 2.

    => ...no way to block someome sms & allow their phone call... <=
    This is a design limitation in Call Block. Noted in my development list and you should get that in V2.

    => ...can not silence the ring with the side buttons on an incoming call... =<
    Never thought of that actually. Thanks for the suggestion. Will explore the possiblity of making it work, but no guarantee as I've got limited knowledge in this area.

    I love the application - it just does not like my MR'd Sprint! Does anyone have a Sprint 700p that was MR'd?

    I have a Sprint 700p which was MR'd via HotSync (and still works!) and CallBlock continues to work.

    Are you a TakePhone user also? that is my problem. I depend on TakePhone and made the choice based on that. If you use the standard phone interface then there is no stability issue.

    I love this program too. I ignore all toll free numbers. if its important they can leave a message because they go straight to VM. I also block all calls at night except the family category, which is in my always Allow list.

    i have one question on SMS blocking...

    whenever an SMS is blocked, does it also block the Treo from sending a delivery notification back to the SMSC?

    i wish the software would be able to supress that, so that the SMSC would think that the msg failed to be delivered, and the sender would think that this number is not in use anymore...

    It's been a long time since I came around these parts.... sorry for the ignorance, but what does MRed mean? What is MR?

    I have a 755p and my 650 now belongs to my wife.
