    is there a way to block all incoming calls where the caller blocks their
    number? I know I can choose to no answer it but I'd rather just be able to
    do as I can do on my landline phone and reject all "blocked" calls from
    coming in

    Thanks

    I don't know why this is crossposted to three different wireless
    groups. Which carrier are you on? I'm not aware of any feature that
    VZW offers like that.

    I resorted to not giving out my cell number to anyone. I make
    everyone call my home phone, and I put Busy Number Call Forward and
    Call Forward No Answer on my home line, with both services forwarding
    to my cell. Then, when I activated Anonymous Call Reject service on
    my land line, no anonymous calls will go through to the cell. They
    get stopped at the land line's CO. The 'unavailable" calls still make
    it through. And occasionally I will get a 'private" call on my cell,
    but it has always been someone calling my cell directly by dialing the
    wrong number.

    Thanks
    I cross posted because I have Verizon, Nextel and T-Mobile services. Wanted
    to know if any of them provided that capability.
    I do what you mentioned below but am getting another phone for daughter and
    she does not have her own land line phone to forward from

    Power user, huh?

    That does becomes a problem. I face the same issue with my kids. I
    just limit who has their number and instruct them not to answer calls
    from numbers not in their phone book. The have 'Ring Master' numbers
    at home, but BellSouth (my landline company) doesn't have a way to
    selectively forward calls based upon which number was called. At
    least not yet.

    Handling it manually may be the best way. For example, you call someone and
    they say they can't speak right now but they will call back in a minute or
    two. If their number is blocked, you won't get the call. If you use manual
    selection, you can choose to accept the call because you are pretty
    confident it is the desired party on the line.

    go to the nextel website and log in. You can add all sorts of restrictions
    to your phone free of charge.

    In California you can! Unfortunately only private numbers can be blocked
    with "Anonymous call rejection" The last time I checked, you can't block
    those with Unavailable numbers and they are usually the ones you least
    want to receive. I also have looked for a silent ringtone on my Audiovox
    CDM9000. If I missed it and a way to associate it with missing numbers,
    please let me know.

    How can you use an Audiovox CDM9000 on T-Mobile? It's not a GSM
    handset.
