How to Block a Number on a Blackberry

BlackBerry devices provide security measures such as blocking numbers. You may want to block unwanted contacts, telemarketers, and even if you use your BlackBerry strictly for business. People cannot call your number or leave voice mails if a number is added to your block list. To prohibit calls, you must go to your BlackBerry’s block list and add numbers or contacts to it.
