Block / Ban Unwanted Calls Using Your Nokia E71

Did you know that your E71 comes with free apps such as Quickoffice version 6.0, Advanced Call Manager and others?

Well if you ever happened to be harrassed by unknown callers and really need to block/ban unwanted calls from your E71, the application 'Advanced Call Manager' by Webgate JSC works wonders. If you happened to have lost the app, you can download it here.

Install the app into your E71 and onced turned on, you will see this screen:


Go to the 'manage lists' and create a new list; i named it 'black' for blacklist.

Once the list is done, configure the list by adding 'new' number or if you've saved the numbers, choose them from 'phonebook'; this number shall be the number that you would like to blacklist/block/ban.

Thereafter, go to 'active mode' and select the active mode - 'reject from black list' option. You shall be asked for a list and you can just select the 'black' list you made earlier.


Go to 'default action' and select the option of your preference; which for me is just 'send busy tone'.


Thats it! You're done. All the numbers in the 'black' list will be handled by the app.

Note that you will need the app to be permanently running in the background. Select 'options>preference' and turn on 'auto run' and 'system application' for the best results.

You can also 'play' with the callers by setting the 'default action' to 'answering machine' and choose a pre-recorded greetings; just in case you are so annoyed by the callers that you want to return the favour.

You should explore the app further and you will notice that it is actually worth using as an answering machine at times where you are busy or in a meeting. It comes with many options and features, profiles and even locator scanner for automated profile changes which should be a very useful tool for business users. The best part is that the recorded messages are in your phone which is easily accessible at any time convenient for you.

Cheers and have fun using this wonderful app.

how about sms/txt any chance of blocking this as well

AttaHun said...

it seems 'advance call manager' is unable to block sms/mms; there is another application from webgate called 'advanced blocker' which handles that, unfortunately it is not free.

E72 have a built-in 'comm manager' which is able to block calls and sms.

I love technology. You can google anything. I was so happy to find this as just ignoring the calls wasn't working they just used a different number and it's been months. I am very grateful for this advice.

I tried this and it is good except that the call is able to hear a ring and then gets a busy tone, this means the caller knows his/her call is being blocked. Is it possible that the caller gets the busy tone as soon as he/she calls.

does this app block unknowe or private numbers

AttaHun said...

try it. you can choose to accept only numbers in your address book if you like. for unknown numbers, try make a 'black list' and include a contact with no numbers. let us know if it works.
