    It doesn't work for me in Canada using Fido network, any reason why it wouldn't?

    Only works in US?

    If you`re talking about the blacklist feature then may answer is NO.

    iPhone 4 with iOS7 beta 4.

    Works fine here in SG ... Just tested using my extra line

    My only gripe is .. that number should get some kind of icon or text to reflect that its now blocked when viewing in Recent List

    Tried it on my VZW i5 yesterday. Had the blocked caller call me, it rang twice and went to voicemail.... so that's a YES IT WORKS from me.

    I'm pretty sure it just doesn't send the notification that your phone is ringing to your iPhone, as can be seen if you restore/reset all settings the list is deleted.

    I don't think it is carrier based... yet.

    But the blocked caller should get to the voice mail, so iphone puts the call not only no notification but to direct the call to voice mail

    Works great! Haven't gotten a single call or SMS from my carrier since B1, which was becoming unbearable.

    It's working for me.

    One big test is I created an contact to block a country code (drug spammers keep calling and using Country code +7). I added it last week, with the phone number listed as "+7" and have yet to receive a call. Lets hope it works. ATT told me there was nothing they could do but change my number - I have had this number for over 10 years, so thats not an option at this point.
