I've been receiveing about 10-15 phone calls per day from a withheld number, sometimes my phone rings at 3 o4 in the morning. I already called AT&T to see if there is a way to identify the caller and block it but the only solution they gave me was to change my phone number. Now I found that in settings the Aria has the barring option but I haen't found the instructions to do it. Can somebody tell me how to do it? THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
The Call barring options will allow you to bar All inbound or All outbound calls, it doesnt let you select a specific number to block (which you dont have anyway since it is coming in as unknown). Check Market, I think that I saw an app in there that will let you block specific calls however, they still need a number to block...I havent seen any apps that allow you to block Unknown calls.
I'm new to this and with a new htc aria phone that I'm getting familiar with. lol. I was hoping you could tell me the name of the app you saw where you can block certain calls. My samsung would let me add calls to a reject list but dont see this option on this phone. Any help you can give would be great!
I have had my THC Aria for 2 weeks I cant get in to the barring settings on my phone so i downloaded the app Mr number call block unlimited its free its almost 5 star and it works on this phone. I have credit card company's calling me all the time it cuts the calls off completely it gives u a black list to chose from to block the calls with phone number or anything else you want. i do not use the white list i just leave it blank. works when u are on a call with someone else.It also works with a task killer.Does not block text messages hope they add it later... Hope i help someone on this i have learned allot in 2 weeks about this phone but i still like it
They now offer text blocking on this application so it does it all...
You can also register your phone with the National Do Not Call Registry.
I had a similar problem, but with an incredibly insane dude who later got picked up for ID fraud. I still had other harassing calls from other places, too, so here's what I discovered (and NO, I don't make a dime for this):
It registers easily, it's FREE, and so far, no drawbacks, unless you maybe consider too many free options a problem.
You can 'ditch' callers (either before they call the first time, or after) by just clicking a little icon next to their name, and voila...their calls never reach you...ever again.
Plus, you can actually customize what each and every different caller hears for your voicemail message--hundreds of free ones to choose from on their 'community page', plus you can make your own, and many are just hilarious (many are still imperfect, as in too long, like this post! But you can submit your own and get 'famous' in yet another 'net way, so...:)
One of my favorites is the fake AT&T three-tone 'this number has been disconnected' voice message--again, which you can custom-set for just that idiotic call center of your choice (basically, anybody who is bordering on breaking the law with their constant, harassing calls, esp. after midnight!)
That's it--you register your phone by dialing a forwarding # into it (they show that #, BTW), you can also log in and actually hear your voicemails on your 'custom' YouMail.com page, and even have emails and/or texts sent you every time you receive a call you actually want to hear. None of this interrupts the regular delivery of your voicemails, or your ability to access them directly from your cell, using the exact same number you always dial, or by dialing your number from any other phone, either.
Pretty cool! You only have to pay if you want 'Premium' stuff, which you won't need, but it's still pretty awesome (esp. for the deaf!!!), 'cause that includes (for like $2 /mo. BTW) actual text transcriptions of each voicemail you get!!!
Again, awesome applied tech for the deaf, who should get grants if they consider the $2 monthly fees a nuisance!
Good for Youmail! I've already got mine set to make my mom listen to this old dumb comic song 'Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah', and, since the dude who was harassing the life out of me is wisely NOT currently calling me, I've already gone in and set his contact info up, so he'll be completely 'ditched' without so much as a voicemail message, OR the opportunity to leave some obnoxious provoking statements like he was making (boy, were you about to get it, too, buddy!)
Enjoy, it's the answer for me, anyway.
BTW (again)...gotta love this phone! Still learning it's coolest features.
If you are a windows mobile phone user, maybe I can help you. Recently, I have searched a kind of new software named Pocket Call Blocker. It is designed for windows mobile to block unwanted calls and sms.
If you have interests in it you can have a look at : www.pocketcallblocker.com/how-to-block-unwanted-incoming-calls-on-windows-mobile.html

In the modern times, cell phones have become an essential part of our life. You will be out of fashion if you have no cell phone. One hand, you can send massages and make phones to your friends or your colleagues with phones at any time in any places. On the other hand, we will enjoy our life with it, such as listening to music, playing games, taking photos, recording a vedio, suffering the internet, etc. But more and more people are using cell phones at the expense of public interest. They talk aloud over the cell phones, the endless ringtones sounded everywhere. How to cope with the noises of cell phones in public has drawn public attentions in many places of the world. Do we have to force ourselves to listen to the noise generated by cell phones?
