General :: Block All Incoming Call Except SMS And Data forum.xda-developers.com

I want to know if there is an app or any other way to block all incoming calls on my HTC Desire V phone. (Rooted and stock ROM) My requirement is to block only "Incoming" calls from a list of pre-selected numbers but I would like to allow everything other then incoming calls. I am using my phone's default way to reject all calls, but any time someone calls they hear a small ring and then operator message saying "The Number You Have Called Is Busy...", So the caller understands that I am rejecting the call and expects a call back. If the message after rejecting a call is like "Switch Off" or something else I am fine. Required "Incoming Call Barring" , because I spoke with my operator regarding incoming calls barring password but I was told that it is phone feature so I needed to contact handset manufacturer for this and I got the same answer from HTC that it is a network feature so I need to contact service provider.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Contacts Do Not Appear On Incoming Calls For Phone / Fix It? talk.sonyericsson.com

Whenever I receive incoming calls, the caller, and even the phone number, doesn't appear to me, that is, the caller always appears as unknown. This means that I don't know who my missed calls are from if they don't get to voicemail. This isn't because of privacy settings on the other phones, I know, because some of the people have public numbers. Does anyone know what's causing this?

HTC Droid Eris :: Recent Call Log Display As Outgoing Call androidforums.com

I have an Eris and my recent call log on my phone displays my outgoing calls as Unknown even if they are saved in my Google contacts. I have the outgoing calls set to go through GV option selected on the phone and I'm not sure what's going on. The contact is displayed for a second and then reverts to Unknown. When I add the unknown number to my existing contacts it works and displays properly, but when I call the same number back from my contact list, it shows up as unknown. My incoming calls and missed calls all show up with the proper contact info, so it seems to just be a problem with my outgoing calls. Does anyone know what's going on or how to fix this?

BB Curve 8900 :: Not Display Incoming Calls Contact Info? supportforums.blackberry.com

I am a new user to the Black Berry world, and have encountered a problem I hope can be fixed.I have 84 contacts in my Adress Book in my Black Berry 8900, all with 10 digit phone numbers linked to each.I do not pay for caller ID through Rogers Canada (Just to let you know).The problem I am having is that, when one of my contacts call me, even though I have there phone number in my contact list their name or picture does not appear. I simply get a pop up saying Incoming Call Unknown Number.I've done some searching online and found that in some other black berries people had this fixed by turning off their content protection in secruity>General settings> Content Protection.This however did not work for my phone.I have had a Sony Ericsson W580i which was capable of doing this simple feature from over a year ago and was on the Rogers service for that phone too.I just got off the phone with Rogers and they are claiming that without Caller ID it is impossible to do this simple feature on a Black Berry.

BB (RIM) :: Bold 9700 Does Not Catch 4.5 Rings Incoming Call www.howardforums.com

My BB 9700 doesn't catch the first 4-5 rings of an incoming call. It's so bad that incoming Google Voice calls go straight to Google voicemail. If I call myself, I hear 4-5 rings on the calling side before the BB begins to ring. I've changed the ringer settings from vibrate but this seems to do little. Before this phone I had a Sony Ericcson k850 that had the same problem. Before that I had the SE k550i that did NOT have any problem. If I take that old phone and put my sim card in it now, it still has no ring lag. So I believe it has something to do with the phone settings within the phone, though this BB is the first phone I bought that came from AT&T (branded probably). Can I change some setting for the phone to ping the towers more often? I don't see anything for slot cycle on the phone...

HTC Droid Eris :: Call History - Unknown Number androidforums.com

Moving on, my problem has to do with "Call-History". What I've noticed is that while I can see the phone-numbers of people in my contacts list people whose number I do not have show up as, bear with me, "Unknown". When I navigate to "Call History", (Say a friend whose number I don't have calls me). I can't add their number to my contact list. This is an increasingly frustrating problem for me. I'll navigate to the "Call History" screen and find that there's no way for me to identify what numerical-phone number called me. There will simply be the designation; "Unknown", while holding down on the entry (while the time/length of the call can be viewed). There is no way to add nor even view, the again, [Unknown] number to my contact list. Phones are ultimately communication devices, if I can't find a solution, well, I'm convinced that I'm going to have to down-grade from a smart-phone to something capable of recording and adding unknown numbers.
