Is there a way to block incoming calls from 'unknown number' callers?

I keep getting calls displaying on the id as "unknown number". I picked it up once and it was a telemarketing call. I get these calls too frequently and it is annoying! Is there a way to set up call restrictions on my phone? I have the Blackberry Tour.

 Yes go on line to the National do not call registry. If you have a frequent caller that has a non blocked phone ID then you can go on Verizon's web site and post it there as well.

  I really have a problem with Verizon's blocking ID names because if the person who is calling and you want to speak with them, all it will show is Texas caller or whatever state you are in. I may want to speak with them, who knows maybe its Dillard's calling me to tell me they are mailing me what I wanted but I will not answer it because it will cost me minutes and if it is an unwanted caller, well you get the idea. :smileymad:

Hi,

It is a problem a lot of folks have.  You can get Verizon to block up to 5 calls I believe through Usage Controls, however, it may not solve your problem all together.  You may have to change your number.

If you have a Blackberry there's a few applications you can download that will block any unknown, restricted or private numbers from causing your phone to ring. You'll most likely have to pay for the application, but if the calls are annoying enough it may be worth the price. Check around the Crackberry.com store. There are applications called Blacklist/Whitelist, Call Blocker etc etc.
