Nice App.....Still needing a call blocker that will block the call when I'm on a call...Alot of times, the calls come through when I'm on a call with previous apps...

Damm, i wish i didn't buy this app 2 months ago....I could of had it for free.......but it's a cool app, i got rid of all my stalkers with it

This is Ben from EveryCall.us, the makers of Call Control, thanks for the write up about our promotion.

Call Control supports international users too, we've had reports from people successfully using our product all over the World, including Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Shoot us an email to support@everycall.us if you have questions! Thanks!

Just because I've read some of the reviews, don't forget that the instructions to get your PRO license is you have to email them your review so they can confirm you actually did it...Don't want people ranting that they never got one and didn't actually READ the Call Control website.

Email:

admin@everycall.us

^thats the email you need to also send your review to

"...download the lite version from BlackBerry App World, leave a review, and you'll receive a pro license..."

this is an awesome app!! i really needed this one! i get so tired of unknown callers esp when i am at work!! thank you so much for this one!

sweetlittlehugs - Yes it works while you're on a call, i.e. Call Waiting.

Pathtek4 - Thanks for the reminder, we appreciate it. We're sending out license keys as fast as we can print them! Thanks to the Crackberry community for your overwhelming response!

I'm excited about this app. I have some unwanted calls still coming through, and this stops them. Take that Charter sales calls!

I use my BB for work and have to give contractors my phone number. After the job is done they keep calling for more work, even if they did poor work!!
This app will allow me to blacklist them and maybe even switch them back to whitelist and then back to blacklist if things turn sour.
thanks for the app and I look forward to the pro app.

I have call blocker pro and I like the fact that you can turn the call blocker on/off when you want to. I don't need it running all the time nor do I need it to have a constant data connection to drain my battery. Good program for free but I'd rather have more control turning it on and off.

Just set it up and have a few instant comments:

For adding to blacklist, should be able to pick from contacts (I have some blacklist numbers added to address book so I know who they are and don't pick up the call).

When adding to blacklist, should be able to paste from clipboard.

Otherwise, so far, so good.

Wonder what happens if number is in contacts and on blacklist - is call blocked? Will try when I have some time and report back.

Finally I have a way of ignoring pesky telemarketers...ex boyfriends...and bill collectors lol. Only comment I have is to make an easier way for adding to blacklist, should be able to pick from contacts, don't cha think?

Rockafella - Good point, we'll add an "On/Off" setting for the call blocker. You can always simply Quit the application and the effect is the same.

HofstraJet - You can add numbers to the blacklist from your address book. Select the contact, hit the menu key, and then select "Add to My Blacklist". Might have to scroll to find it.

Regarding the paste request, good call! If the contact is manually added to the blacklist and is in your contacts, it will be blocked.

Hope that helps.

Does a pretty good job on telemarketers (800 numbers). You could also report a friends number and it will get added to the list(just for fun).Y'all should try it.

Once I submitted the review it never mentioned how to get the PRO for free.. How do I/How will I get the license?

Has anyone actually gotten their pro version yet? I downloaded, posted review and emailed it to them already.

Call Block Control is just what I have been waiting for. Every Blackberry user should have this app. for all those unwanted calls. I love this application.

ShadowShow - Send an email to us support@everycall.us with a copy of the review and we'll email out the license key to you ASAP.

Teddyp6 - Did you receive your key from us? We've been sending them like crazy this morning.

Some people are able to email a screen shot of the review or they send us a summary of the review. Either way works if you can't find the review to copy it. App World's review system is a bit slow at the moment we've heard.

"THE NUMBER YOU HAVE DIALED , NO LONGER EXISTS". This would be a great app to use when the office calls at odd hours.

I've been looking at this software for a bit now, like it. Thanks for offering the Free Pro license. Big Help, you guys are too cool!

I just got this application and it is great. I have been waiting for something like this for years and I can't believe I actually am using it now! Anyone who doesn't have this app...it is a must have!!

Just downloaded the app and left a review on appworld. Hope it refreshes soon cause it seems like it's being flooded with reviews and not able to refresh or something.

Download and setup took about one minute. I posted my review, emailed it off and had my pro license key in less than 10 minutes. This is a great app and a fantastic promotion. Thanks, Every Call!

Finally, a calls blocker application that works!! A much needed app to get rid of those pesky unwanted callers that can't take a hint. Thanks for the download. Just sent in my review. Can't wait for the pro license =)

and send an e-mail to admits' e-mail address. I haven't receive the Pro reg key yet, I attached a screen shot of my installed call control lite with missing "add review" as proof that I already submitted. Hopefully I will receive my pro key soon.

i downloaded it, but it's not working. im calling from my friends phone, and it still goes through. i'm going to email support.

I downloaded the app and it works as described. When I go to App World to submit a review I get an error and App World shuts down. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling App World with no luck.

Posted a review it isn't showing up so I sumized what I posted and sent email and it just bounces...

Email to support@everycall.us

this is what I summized

I posted a Review, I can't find it to cut and past but it was
something along: My number kept getting unwantted calls from vegas and
now they are gone. 5 Star Rating.....Thanks

Message I got back

Technical details of permanent failure:
Message rejected. Please visit http://www.google.com/mail/help/bulk_mail.html to review our Bulk Email Senders Guidelines.

I hope you all have better luck...

Between us and call control i think we broke appworld.
"problem reading data from the server and blackberry appworld must exit error type: 100002"

Getting the same error. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling App World with no luck. I sent an email to the vendor anyways and explained what is happening.

Not sure what the problem is but the promotion runs through tomorrow, so I'd suggest trying again in a couple of hours.

Thanks!

Are you connected over wifi? I found that this version of App World doesn't work right when you try to read reviews or log into My World when connected over wifi. Try disabling wifi and see if you have any luck. Seems to work for me every time I get that error.

I didn't get an error message when I submitted my review and I don't see it in appworld. I did it this morning. It doesn't even give an option to post another review in the app. This is frustrating.

Hi,

does anybody know what the exact cause of the above error may be?
I read through the supporting PDF but
- giving full permissions
- checking if Browser has internet access
both do not make the application work.

What else can I do?

This error happens when Call Control can't connect to our servers to download the TOS user agreement. Typically if you wait a couple minutes or restart your device it'll solve itself.

Our servers are definitely up and running so I know that isn't the problem. Shoot us an email if you still can't get it to go.

I've had a couple of nuisance calls that persist to call and never leave a message. I finally entered that number as a contact just to flag it as "no ringer" so it wouldn't annoy me further. It's one of those area code 949 calls that get so many internet complaints. I haven't gotten the call yet but I can't wait this time. Easy to install and easy to use application.

Got it and Love it. Had issues w/ app world review, but emailed call control and they took care of it imediatly. Great customer service. Thanks

Neat app. It will save me a lot of hassle from people and companies I don't want to talk to. Easy to use. I would recommend it to all my Blackberry friends! --- is what I want to post. Thanks, call control. I plan on posting as soon as access is restored. Oh, and I did email my thoughts to the admin address.

Ok, I got it installed and it seems to be working. No option to test it out without blocking someone, but you can't block people on your address book so that is good. I want a full license key to really try it out!

I LOVE this app and really want the PRO version, but I left my comment via MYWORLD and now I can't find it and I forgot to email it to them, or what I said, and now I don't have the option to leave another review....any advise?!?

I installed last night and sent my email over. My activation code was in my email when I woke up this morning. You can block private and unknown number calls with the full version.

Great software. I only use my crackberry and not a home line and it keeps those pain in the butt telemarketers away. I highly recommend it.

Is there a guide for this program? It works well out of the box but I'd like to know how some of the settings work.
i.e. What does the Privacy Mode and Pickup and Hangup blocked calls do exactly if checked vs. unchecked.

Finally an app that will block all those annoying people that won't quit calling me!! Thanks!

This is a really helpful app. Posted my review and then couldn't find it, so I sent an email with the subject of my review and a summary of what I had written, and received my license key within 5 minutes - thanks so much!

I've been receiving telemarketer calls for months now and of course the carrier can't help me. I am loving the ability to block those calls!

so worth getting... finally can block those damn telemarketers and spam callers!!!

had a caller as of late that keeps calling... timing could not have been more perfect to get this app!

Hi, I've left comment last night, however, I still didn't get my license code. Would you mind to send it to me again? Thanks very much.

Downloaded the app and sent the review in last night, woke up and got my key this morn. Very useful app, just wished it didn't ring before ending the call.

I thank you so much for this app. I have someone that thinks that I am their entertainment since they aren't working and they call all times of the day and night. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Tried to submit a review on app world, but keep getting error message saying can't submit review, please try again later. This happened since yesterday

I downloaded Call Control three days ago and I only wish I could have this feature on my landline phone. Already I have taken great pleasure in placing at least two call numbers on my Blacklist. After I received one call at
2:58 am., I decided it was time to take action!!! I saw this app listed on your Crackberry site. Thank you Crackberry!

Well, I am glad that this application works like it says it does. But, I sent in my review to them and I am STILL waiting for my license key....:(

Used the trial, wanted more. Buying process was flawless and received my validation code right away. I have a Storm2.
I ordered this application not just to block spam calls, but to block people I do not want to talk to.
When I changed my settings to "Privacy" 'only allow those on my contacts list' to ring, works great!
From time to time I set it to "hang up on blocked calls" This is wonderful.
Keep those late hour, unwanted calls from disturbing you. By using "hang up on block calls" I elminate callers who go into my voicemail and then dont leave one.
I still know they called because it leaves a log of block calls.
It does have a Black list & White list for people who are not in your contacts. I white list numbers I dont want cluttering my contacts but still want to receive calls from. You can black & white list whole area codes.
Totally brought sanity to my cell phone which is my primary phone contact.
Worth it, one of my Top 10 best Blackberry Storm Apps!

I too highly recommend "SRS Call SMS and eMail Spam Blocker" .
Calls, SMS and Email for blocking, all in one, the best solution on the market.
Spam incident out of my life.
I got rid of unnecessary and time killer call, SMS and emails.

Cool app I got it installed and seems to be working.
I want a full license key to really try it out.
Thanks for such a great app.
