    I'm not sure if this thread is in the right section or not. I don't know if only apps for JB phones or if legit apps exist (if any at all). If an app does exist for non-jailbroken phones also then I apologize as this doesn't belong in the "hacks" section.

    Basically I need something to completely block calls from certain numbers. I made the mistake back in December of calling this used car dealer for info on a car listed on their site. I was called back and told it was "just sold" and then given the runaround about coming to check out the "100s of other great cars". I told them "I was only interested in the one I called about and it was sold so thanks for your time but I won't be coming down". The lady proceeded to book me for an appointment anyway for a Saturday, even though I again said that won't be necessary. They called me at 9am that Saturday to "confirm my appointment". I was pretty heated because, well, it was NINE AM ON A SATURDAY! I said I won't be coming, which I already told you, and please don't call again. Well, pretty much EVERY DAY since then I get a call from them sometime between 2pm and 5pm, never fails. And they call between 10 and 11am on Saturdays and Sundays! I have answered early on to say STOP CALLING, I have even spoken to the dealer manager and said now I would NEVER buy from them even if they got the exact car I wanted way cheaper than anywhere else because of these harassing calls. The guy actually said they get new stock in almost daily if I change my mind! I have just been completely ignoring the calls ever since but it's highly annoying to get a call and a voicemail daily, the voicemail always saying "we have GREAT news for you, please give us a call or cone by". It's friggin obnoxious and you'd think they'd get the point when I complained and said stop calling and now I haven't even answered in more than a month, or returned the calls!

    So yeah, basically I need something to block the 5 different numbers they call from. Sorry for the long post, I was venting as I am pissed because again I get woken up on a Saturday AM by them. For awhile Id turn the ringer, or phone, off when I went to bed on the weekends, but then friends couldn't get ahold of me and now my brother's GF is having a baby any day now, so I can't just ignore ALL calls.

    Yeah, you can get this via cydia or rockapp. I'd advise using rockapp because the license will be connected to your login, so if you switch phones it'll be easily transferrable. It can block numbers all the time, and block test messages, too. You can set up times of the day that it works and you can also block the text or mms preview from showing on your phone. It has a pretty deep feature set.

    iBlacklist and MCleaner are the two I know of. Both available on Cydia under the "Featured Packages". I am not sure about Rock (I don't use it).

    I have only installed and played with iBlacklist on a friends phone and it seemed to work as advertised.
