Hope someone here can help me out on this, ever since I had my dell streak I've been receiving these frustrating calls from many different telemarketers from 801 and 800 numbers. Just family members has my cell number and by my using bluetooth and my cell rings, I automatically think its family members when its these jerks. Is there anyway I can set this dell streak to block out such calls, I'm on the do not call list but thats obviously ignored. I'm with at&t and I wonder if they sell people's numbers to these telemarketers.

I am not sure whether there is such a feature in Settings/Phone settings.

But there are many Apps. that can do this for you ....

give them ****, and a lot of it. i ended telemarketer calls a few years ago by either acting retarded, literally or relentlessly asking the girl out and for her address or phone number or accusing every guy of cheating with my wife. i would get very obscene in the phone calls and after a couple of weeks it all stopped and i havent had one since. its kind of sad it was a lot of fun. i let this one girl do her whole presentation acted so interested for like 15 minutes then when she asked for my credit card info i accused her of being a gold digger and told her she had no real feelings for me and i would never buy anything from her. the hardest part of it all was not laughing or making you significant other not laugh

I don't know about in the US, but in Oz we can place our name on a register, and such Companies are not permitted to call.

You will find call barring Apps. on the Market.
