PrivacyStar for BlackBerry Blocks Unwanted Callers - 5 Subscriptions to Give Away

By Adam Zeis on 20 Jan 2010 02:39 pm EST


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 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.

PrivacyStar for BlackBerry Blocks Unwanted Callers - 5 Subscriptions to Give Away



Yeah need this program to block unknown caller or annoying person
Report to authorities? Now that's a cool feature

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!

I would love a copy of this. I hate it when people block their number, including family members who I might not want to talk to right then. Please can I have one?

I love crackberry. I am on in all day looking for new things to try. And would really love to win something.

i think i should win because i have the same 4 bill collectors calling me every couple hours a day. i have a full time job and 3 kids i dont need my phone ringing off the hook if one of my kids is trying to readch me. i dont even owe them money its a magazine telemarketer. please help!!! this app would save my life!!!

when I seen this I was so excited. I would absolutely love to win a copy. Thanks in advance and good luck to everyone.

I would love to win this as I could keep people that I don't know from calling me!


Kevin, and the rest of the staff. Thanks for creating this Lexicon of all things Berry. This Oracle at Crackberry.

What a good way to get rid of those annoying numbers that call you all the time. CB hook me up pleaseeeee.

CB > iphone

Would be very useful for my multiple unwanted calls from people who refuse to identify themselves, leave a voicemail, or have a number that is private. I'd love a subscription to this :D

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

With the elections coming this year I would like to see how well it blocks the political calls coming in. Then I might purchase it.

calls calls calls all these people calling that i dont want to talk to crackberry help me please stop the insane calling

Having this would give me a great peace of mind from the ex wife. She is a bad influence for my kids hence the reason I have them and I would love to have her number blocked to avoid her talking to my kids without me being there as I allow to answer my phone.

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

i just want an application that can block "unknown number", coz i displeased to pick up phone call from anyone which number not shown in my phone. its really sucks.

dude you have to give me a copy of this..I dont know how but a certain political party has gotten ahold of my cell phone number and they call me CONSTANTLY..looking for donations..please help !!!!!

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.

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.

hey kev,,, i mean mr.kevin....that sounds like a good that will come in handy for a player....can u pick a rookie blackberry user such as my self for the give away.....LOL....pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

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!

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!

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....

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.

something that will finally block all the annoying telemarketers calling my damn phone!!!!

Awesome. I hope that this one works! I've been trying different blockers and most just send the caller to VM...

Would love a copy.

New cell number seems like was assigned to some chap who was not paying bills and am #$@#$ bothered by 800 numbers looking for someone else
Need this one ...

I need this app cause the other one that suppost to do the job dont i still get calls from number i dont want
help me please

I've had to change my number three times because of stupid telemarketers!! So I definitely need this.

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.
