Using the Blacklist.

When you put a number on the BLACKLIST, when that number calls you what happens? Do they get a message that you've blocked them or ????

 

Also, when a number is on the BLACKLIST why can they still send you TEXT MESSAGES???

    You can blacklist text senders, too.

    Ok, I use GoSMS. Settings>Advanced>manage Blacklist....TaDa! (lots of choices)

    Nice... not a big fan of adding an extra app for SMSes, but if blocking texts is there and needed, that's okay I guess.  But does it really block them or just prevents them from being viewed?  (if you're on a plan which charges you for incoming texts, does an app which "blocks" them prevent you from being billed for it?)

     

    One thing about the blacklist I'd like to be able to do is save and restore that list.  I don't spend any time in Kies but Kies air doesn't seem to support the list.  I can actually get the list's sqlite DB file and extract the contents, but I have no means of updating the contents programatically just now. (Maybe one day when I sit down to learn about SQLite)  But if I'm going to have a black list, I'd like to be able to make good use of it and be able to manage it with imports and exports.

    I do so agree! Mine isn't too long, yet, so I screenshot the list and add it to an ever increasing word file I make with SmartOffice 2. I'm a FIRM believer in backups and external sd cards.

    blacklist will just prevent a number from calling you( calls will route to VM) but cannot prevent from sending you a text message/ there is an application on the android market that can block txt messaging, but im not familliar of the apps,
