I am having the same problem on my Lumia 928 after doing the Amber update and it is important to note that this feature/app is part of the Amber update on any Windows Phone 8 device. I block a number and it keeps getting through and the app does not even count that it has blocked the number. Mine has been doing it to a toll-free number from a company I have been dealing with. I will not go into details but let's just say they don't like the payment arrangement they originally agreed to and want more $$$$ from me. Are the numbers that are still getting through toll-free for you as well?
Yes I used the add from call history option when the number first called after installing the Amber update I pressed and held the screen on the number until the menu popped up and pressed "Block Number" When it calls back I do the same thing but when I select "Block number" I get a message telling me that said number is already blocked with an OK button.
Call me clueless, but I don't see the option to block - we have a Lumia 928, with AMBER installed. I go to Settings>>Extras + Info, and I don't see the options as shown here:
Long pressing a number on my recent call list gives me one option: Delete item.
Is there something else I need to install? O am I just not looking in the right place? Thanks for any and all help.
The Extras+Info just gives information about your phone's carrier settings, version of the Nokia software AMBER in our cases. The feature is off by default I found it in mine when I went into settings under the phone section and you can turn any or all of those features on.

I must be blind, I'm still not seeing it. The only part of the screen not showing in this is my own ph number and voicemail info at the top. I scroll past that and this is all I see. Where should I be looking?
Nevermind, I read this thread - , installed the SysApp Pusher, and now have SMS and Call filtering, and some other goodies to play with. There is so much I don't know about this phone, and it seems the more I learn, the more there IS to learn. No wonder there is confusion and complaints about things not working.....
And just FYI, I tested the SMS call blocking and it doesn't seem to work. I blocked my home phone, then called the cell form the home phone. The call came in, the cell phone rang, I flipped it over to "silence it", and the call went to voicemail. And the # of blocked calls still read "0".
