    when receiving a call, if in the name/number field it says "Blocked", is that someone that dialed *67 or something?

    yes.
    Personally, I don't answer those, and I even have a block on my phone so that I don't even get those calls anymore.

    Usually those are my friends trying to be cute, but sometimes they can be the shady crack dealers, so yeah, I don't answer them.

    I know a couple people who are "blocked". I think it's an option you can enable with your service provider.

    blocked can be from an unlisted number as well.

    I know u can do that with only land lines..request that no blocked numbers come through.
    Cell phones don't have that feature unlist you're using a third party app....

    I really don't like Blocked calls. Sometimes they come up as Unknown but when I answer it changes to Blocked. I have only one friend whose number is that, so 98% of the time its him, but the other 2% is either wrong numbers, or my friends playing jokes.

    really? that's excellent! i will have to call them to ask for that for my cell line. my mom has her caller ID automatically blocked, so when i get a blocked call, i know it's most likely her, but i hate taking the chance and would rather see the caller ID for every call i get...

    Yes, I think you can even log onto your account online and add the feature. I have an unlisted number on my land line, but the number will still show up when calling a cell phone, so I think a call that says "blocked" will usually come from a cell phone which has intentionally been blocked.

    I'm sure everybody has heard of MCleaner in apps, great little pgm that sends all blocked and unlisted numbers to v/m. You can even set up a blacklist where they also go directly to v/m. Hope this helps all.

    so after about one call a day for the past few weeks, from this "blocked" number, two days ago i decided to answer it, and it was some confused lady i could hardly understand... i tried telling her that she has the wrong number.

    Last night around midnight she called again... i guess i'll have to install a filter...

    you can do it on your phone, yourself. Ready?

    settings
    phone
    show my caller id
    off

    done. you may now call as "blocked".

    you're welcome. :)

    I believe this thread was more about receiving them than how to make them.

    does anyone know of any software or any fix to stop blocked calls from coming into a 3G iPhone?
    much appreciated. i can always choose not to answer them but id rather have a caller reveal their number or have my phone not even ring if its blocked.
    thanks
    mark
