Call Blocker Pro has grown to be one of my favorite and most used apps. Sometimes, one cannot be bothered with phone calls. Whether you are in an important business meeting, spending quality time with the family, on vacation, or just simply trying to avoiding that "crazy ex" that just keeps blowing up your phone--Call Blocker Pro is the perfect app you! Keep reading for my full review.
Call Blocker Pro is packed with features that make it one of the most versatile and reliable call-blocking apps on the market. This app can be customized to allow calls to be routed straight to your voicemail or set to "pick up & hang up" your calls so that the caller doesn't even realize they are being blocked. Call Blocker also allows you to automatically send a customizable SMS to blocked callers, letting them know you are busy.
Call Blocker Pro also offers a Timer Mode. You can set Call Blocker Pro to automatically enable/disable itself at certain times, for example to block calls at night, but allow them during the day. You can even set up custom exclusions (whitelist) to allow certain numbers, such as family members, to get through regardless of your other settings. It is definitely true when it is said, "Call Blocker Pro offers the fastest and most feature rich call blocker app for your BlackBerry!"

How I Use/Benefits of this app
I personally have used Call Blocker Pro to block incoming calls from disturbing important business meetings, while simultaneously sending out a notification/text to the blocked caller that "I'm currently in a meeting, however, I'll get back to you shortly..."
Throughout my travels I have met some of the most wonderful people, however every once in a while you may come across someone that you later regretted giving your number to. Call Blocker Pro is an excellent way to avoid receiving calls without having to be rude and telling the caller to "stop calling" or "please loose my number!"
Ever been to a bar and had one to many Camparis...and gave your number to "the wrong person?" (...and yes! It also happens here in the States, except for that whole Campari thing...sorry Kevin...Lol). Here is where an investment in Call Blocker Pro can save you that uncomfortable conversation with that person you "met at the club." Or maybe he/she just doesn't get the hint when you haven't answered their numerous calls...Call Blocker Pro is the perfect tool to solve your social woes!
