PrivacyStar

A few days ago we saw the release of PrivacyStar from First Orion. The application makes it easy for you to block unwanted callers, telemarketers, 800 numbers and more from getting through to your BlackBerry. Users can login to the web portal and add or remove numbers from their blocked list. PrivacyStar will run you $2.99 a month, but a free 30-day trial is available. Features include:

  • Report offenders to authorities directly using PrivacyStar
  • Block unwanted callers from your call log menu or enter numbers manually
  • Block private or unknown callers
  • Block Exchanges
  • On demand PrivacyStar caller identification
  • Fully integrated with your PrivacyStar.com portal
  • Keep track of how many PrivacyStar calls you're receiving

The response after the release was so great that First Orion gave us 5 free one-year subscriptions to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST.

tucker973

Way to keep away those bill collectors, heh heh

asggold

I have been waiting for the right application that would do this without blocking the calls you really want. I have had trouble in the past with one bank (Wells Fargo) not taking my cell number off their list. Even after numerous attempts and calling them and telling the representative the person who they were trying to reach was NOT at this number, they somehow NEVER could remove my cell number from their list.

I REALLY would like to win this package!

c0rinne

I would use this to keep my boss from calling me. I always feel bad when I hang up on her.

This is the perfect app for someone who uses a mobile fone without having a home landline and needs to block the unwanted solicitors.

It would interesting to see how this compares to the blocking calls features in Google Voice, and apps like Black & White List.

sunads

Add me to the list to win

muneton17

Ahh this sounds great.

bcbbanga4l

jtrundle

I am going thru a divorce and I need this bad so I can block my ex!

keizerjrr

I currently use an application CallStat the does some of the rudimentary things as PrivacyStar. I would be happy to upgrade my call blocking application to what appears to be a far superior application.

Osteele

Pwitty Pwitty Pweeze !!!

McNooberson

I've tried other call blockers, hope this one is good!!

rogs6266

pick me pick me pick me pick me pick me !!!!!

greengiant_pr

I had iCall Manager but lost it when switching phone/providers, and it's an ok call manger (it could be better thou). ... Definitely looking forward for a 5 star call manager/blocker. Let's see.

Redx

looks like great app!!

Mike18012

fstien

It's an amazing stuff, I like it. Hope to be the lucky guy.

pegb856

Looks interesting, I'd love to see how this works.

milkbar

would love a copy!!!

wresqu

This appears to be a great APP!, much cheaper than having to pay your provider to block the unwanted calls! I would love to give this app a go!

gspisak

I totally need this! So many unwanted calls!!!

wireless0ne

this would be beautiful.

missleslie09

I have sooo many blocked callers calling me, it's crazy. And of course AT&T can't do anything about it. I would love to have this!

dwardlaw

If the reverse lookup feature of this product is strong, that is worth the subscription price by itself. I generally don't accept any calls if I don't recognize the number. I would love to have a quick easy way to perform a lookup directly from the BB phone app instead of having to launch a browser and perform a Google search....

Ghostrider757

You gotta be in it to win it so count me in!

tscharron

Seriously, I recently moved from Missouri to Phoenix, Arizona and got a recycled phone number...from someone running from all kinds of bills and bill collectors. I need this to block the bill collectors that don't accept the fact that I am not the woman they are looking for.

kenundrem

looks like a cool program I would love this!

mpwhiteman

O man I so want one of these it would be so sick to get one.

panalyn

Sylverlady

NoKittyNo

I could see using this app for about 3 numbers in particular, however; if needed 5 for an option would be excellent. So count me in.
