    I assume it's based on caller ID and the call would come through.

    Yes, it would come through, but how would they know you've got it blocked because to the caller it just seems as though you aren't answering. So, unless you told them you blocked them why would they do that? I've used this with a sales rep that kept calling me. He eventually called me on 3 different phone numbers which have now all been blocked. He doesn't know that and besides I don't answer blocked or unidentified calls. He can call all he wants! LOL

    They wouldn't know you've blocked it. Automatically they would make there number most likely private if there a creepy stalker lol to try hide their identity?

    all im saying is, It's based on the caller ID.

    Usually I try to avoid calls from "unknown" callers (number not in contacts). And if the caller id is hidden, no way.

    telstra calls on blocked numbers, major call centres and over the phone job interviews etc.. It would be hard not to answer all blocked numbers for some people.

    If it's important they will leave a voicemail.

    It's based on caller ID...that's pretty much how these kinds of things work in most cases. This is nothing new or all that revolutionary.

    Yes people can hide their number or even change it that's how it's always been. A lot of carriers will often allow you to add a feature to only allow non hidden numbers to go through so that might be something that can help as well.

    ----------

    By the way the thread title is quite confusing and doesn't really make any sense.

    OT: I used TrapCall that unblocks blocked numbers ($5 / month). I had some kids calling at all hours and when I got their number I had a "nice" chat with daddy and no more calls. Probably not a good solution for this thread but it's out there.
