    Here is a small patch I created that will automatically reject any call that comes in and is listed as a number for a contact with the name: 'Do Not Answer'
    No announcement will be seen or any notification whatsoever. I believe it will still list the call in the history though. So apply the patch, make a contact by the name 'Do Not Answer' (no quotes), and put in any number you want to block... enjoy!

    EDIT: you can also link profiles to that 'Do Not Answer' contact so long as its the primary, they should all be blocked.

    EDIT: it does not still list in the call history.

    11/17/2009: Now works fully with 1.3.1 ... no more notification of missed call.
    3/1/2011 : uploaded versions for 2.1 ... will actually disconnect call immediately.

    I am looking at the code - I have done very little exploring in regards to creating patches but it appears that one could easily expand the logic some how to include "Blocked number" and "Unknown number".

    Besides rooting my pre and looking at the TelephonyEventListener.jsjsjs $file$ $is$ $there$ $any$ $other$ $way$ $to$ $view$ $these$ $files$?

    just use a text editor on the patch file itself
    you could also pull out the webos file from the doctor, it has all the files there... use 7zip.

    Thank you.

    When I first looked at your patch I wondered why we could just not change the code on line 8 to something like this:

    Code:
    if (contact.name === 'Do Not Answer' || contact.name === 'Unknown number' || contact.name === 'Blocked number')
    However I seem to understand now that your patch is searching the contact list.

    What I am wondering about is how the phone identifies the difference between blocked numbers and unknown numbers.

    For example on my phone it shows:

    Code:
    Unknown number
    Unknown caller
    time
    
    Blocked number
    Unknown caller
    time

    how do i install this patch? is there anyway you can get it into webos quick install or preware?/
  6. #6  
    just drop the patch file into WOQI and it works just fine!

    Is there a way to expand this patch to send out a predefined text like (running late, busy, etc) for missed or ignored calls similar to TreoFlex for the Treo?
    TreoFlex 3.5 (for Palm OS) - mytreo.net/downloads Greenhex developed for the Treo and it was very useful, it sent out messages automatically based on what you had in your notes field. It is truly missed.

    why can't we edit that like of code to include a persons name?

    Let's say theoretically you are already on the phone with someone and you get a call from 'Do Not Answer'. Will the disconnectCall() function hang up both calls or just the incoming one?

    FYI... I just entered a contacts name and it worked. Now i wonder if you can add more contacts by entering a comma between each??

    This might be possible having looked over the phone code, I will have to look into it some more..., I would probably make this a separate app than a call block.

    It should only disconnect the incoming call, there is a separate function for disconnect all and this is placed in a function only accessed for incoming.

    you can do it by adding || between each.

    I'm am planning on expanding this to an app that you can specify a list of contacts, but as my time is limited it might be a bit. I wanted to get something out there for everyone requesting something.
    FYI, I didnt want to include 'unknown' as it looks at the name and say your waiting on a job interview call... if the job isn't in your contacts it would come up 'unknown'... or if the business for some reason blocks their number it would come up 'blocked'. The app will have these as options though.

    I tried 2 contacts seperated by a comma and it didnt block either cotact. I tried it like this 'Treo 755p' 'chuck' ..... IT DIDNT WORK! Caused my phone to go back and forth from the boot screen to the just charge/usb screen. Lucky i was still able to goto webos QI and remove the patch.

    Did you even read through the past 10 post?? Cause that was for sure discussed! Now pay attention Mister! Lol j/k but it was discussed

    Wow, just tested, works nicely.
    Never thought of this myself, kudos to you.

    An app that allows you to check contacts from a list, as well as add separate numbers or strings that are not in your contacts list would be great such as Blocked Number.

    love it - nice work.

    Yes, I'm not sure if it will work though, tried it on emulator and no calls could come throught but I had tried (contact.name == 'Do Not Answer' || 'unknow')
    Doing it that way may work. Let me know... g/f calling for attention....

    EDIT: doesnt work...

    I made an icon for the "Do Not Answer" contact out of the International No sign.

    Here it is for your use:
