I am having recurrent, undesired, calls come in on my cell phone.. I use Sprint. The customer service rep indicates that they can not block a call for me.

Does this seem right?

Does anyoen know a way to do it?

thanks.

What kind of calls are they? Solicitors? Cause you can register at the "Do Not Call Registry" (google it I can't find the link) and that will stop that crap. If it's just someone you don't wanna talk to, just don't answer any calls from numbers you don't know. I don't think that there is any way to block a call.

telemarketers are not supposed to call a cell phone. if they do, just tell them they called your cell phone and they will hang up.

I used to do it all the time on my home phone :toothless

answer the phone, ''John's place, can i take your order?"
(or make up a name of a place)

its a wrong number, but its at terribly late hours and recurent.
1. Save the number to your phone book

2. Go to "Edit Contact", however you get to it on your phone

3. Go to "Set Ringer" hit okay

4. Set ringer to "none"

Phone doesn't ring when they call.

I was gonna say the same thing. you cannot block individual #'s, you can block your number from being displayed when making calls *67 before you dial but that's all I know. I'm sure there is a * number you can dial after this call comes in to report it as harassing or whatever liek the regular home phone lines, I don't recall what that is either, but I don't have a home phone either just my cell. Freakin Sprint/Nextel sucks in my opinion but what can ya do huh when your stuck in a contract and I'm kinda partial to my i580

you keep getting death threats from that number. Phone companies by law are required to block any phone number that you recive on your phone if harrassed in any way. Though the worse you make it sound, the more on their toes they'll be to block it.

Simply put, if the phone company doesnt block the number of which you're being harrassed by, they are in default of their end of the contract. Then you can leave their company and get a better service. Pain the in ass but thats for the hardcore people who wont stand for anything and love to argue, like me!

You're thinking of a landline, not a cell phone.
