There are times we receive a call or two (or more) from telemarketers or other callers that should just not get answered. One of the call blocking applications available in BlackBerry World is BlockIt, a headless application that allows users to block incoming calls from numbers in your address book, from your phone log, and those inputted manually.

BlockIt received a minor update this week bringing it to version 2.0 and it brings with a few new features users can take advantage of.

Changelog v2.0

  • Add SMS Blocking
  • Add notification when block
  • Add Driving/Meeting/Unavailable - Auto Reply feature

In addition to these new features, the developer is also giving away 200 copies for free. All you have to do is follow the directions laid out below to redeem the promotion code.

  • Launch BlackBerry World
  • Swipe down from the top and tap on Redeem
