    This is great & may make me finally purchase the Pre. I have CallBlock on my Centro & I would love for this app/patch to function similarily.

    I think it'd be perfect if there was an ignore & a block option. "Ignore" should hear all of the rings & then be sent to voicemail, so they won't suspect that they're being ignored, & blocked #s should go straight to voicemail.

    I mostly totally block (send straight to voicemail) unknown & private #s, but I primarily need this to ignore family & co-workers so I would prefer to keep them in the call log & also see alerts/notices so I'll realize I missed a call.

    But no, I don't want to just set their ringer to no sound. I don't want to accidentally answer it. :-)

    Anyways, I can definitely imagine all of the uses for this with GV! With GV I'd be ok with all calls going straight to voicemail (since I rarely answer my phone) if I can use GV to filter calls & give custom greetings, & maybe some extra rings, etc.

    Now I just need a Call Record app, but maybe I can use GV for that too. :-)

    i read through this thread and don't see this listed anywhere.

    Have there been any reported issues with the "Do Not Answer" contact syncing properly with an exchange server?
    I noticed in the notes section of the contact on my exchange account (while viewing with email client like outlook or owa) it has a section called --Palm Data do not modify--- followed by some code including the very first phone number i placed in this contact.
    Can i alter this and input additional numbers using the same coding format in this section and make the pre accept them when called?

    None of the other numbers i entered into the contact via the palm pre have synced with the exchange contact, and visa versa. Clearly it did the initial sync worked as it shows up in my exchange account.

    Ive added a test1 and test2 contact, one on each side to make sure my sync is actually working properly, both go across no problem and combine data, just this Do Not Answer contact will not sync between the two.

    Did i miss a requirement that it should only be edited on the pre side or is there some real issue to my insanity?

    To be honest, I have no idea. I don't use and exchange server and no-one else has listed any problems with it. One solution around this (if you don't have that many numbers being blocked) would be to create a contact for each number you want to block and simply link them with the Do Not Answer contact being the primary. This is how I quickly test any mod's of the patch I've been trying... Does it sync other contacts with multiple numbers? It might be an unknown limitation...

    good idea, i think i will try the linking with other profiles.
    Is your patch using the built in universal search or is it using it's own to search all profiles? The webos universal search only searches the info in the primary profile, so if that number isn't listed in there, in theory it would not see it as a Do Not Answer because it isn't in the primary profile.

    hopefully the patch will be solid very soon, as for the app... still have to get down to actually getting the base structure, have an outline of how it will work in mind though...

    the patch doesn't use either, it uses the name that would be displayed by the phone program after it does the search.

    glad everyone is liking this patch so far... I have a version now that will answer and immediately hang up if anyone is interested... I'm still trying to figure out how to prevent the answered call scene from showing up, but it works and you only see the scene for less than a second. There will still be a listing in the call history for it and I'm sure it will use a minute of any 'limited minute' plans. But its a way to prevent going to voicemail... Once I have this without showing the scene, I'm gonna work on the audio routing to mute the system and play a file before hanging up...

    Okay, I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I've read this whole thread from beginning to end, and while the topic has been touched upon, I don't see anything conclusive.

    My goal is to specifically block ONLY the calls where no phone number is available-- they either show up as 'Blocked number' or 'Unknown number'. As long as a phone number is provided, I don't want to block the call, even if the number isn't in my contacts.

    From what I read, it seems like there is a version of this patch that will block any caller that isn't in my contacts, which would theoretically block these unknown/blocked calls, but it would also block calls from numbers that show up on the caller ID but aren't in my contacts, and I don't want that.

    I get bombarded by these no-number calls all day, every day. Putting myself on the do-not-call registry makes no difference, and when I answer, there is never anyone on the other end. Ever. I am prepared to make a serious donation if someone can help me resolve this.

    I have this installed and when a number that I listed is blocked, I get a notification that I missed a call and that it is from the last number I dialed and NOT the number blocked. Is this normal?

    I've been studying how to just block those that are 'blocked' or 'unknown'... but have not found anything that works yet... will keep trying though.

    Some have reported this as an issue though its not universal... I'm not sure what causes it have been looking for a different way to block...

    Also if it helps, the blocked number doesn't show up on missed calls or all calls.

    Much thanks for your efforts! Here's to hoping a breakthrough is on the horizon. I know I'm not the only one that faces this problem.

    I have that problem. I also oddly enough have had the phone ring a few times on numbers that are supposed to be blocked.

    You can currently block texts by signing in to Sprint's web site and blocking them there.
