is there an app that blocks all calls, but leaves everything else working?

hey,

i use my iPhone as a modem quite often. sometimes when i work i get calls, but i can't put the iPhone on flight mode (so i won't get them) because i need it to connect (of course). is there an app that blocks all calls - i don't want it to ring or vibrate - but would still enable me to use it as a modem?

Just turn off the vibrate on silent option and switch it to silent. Ignore the calls.

Which carrier are you using? If you're Verizon or Sprint an app won't help. The call needs to be blocked upstream to prevent disturbing your modem use. If you're on at&t or TMO you can just ignore the calls or silence the ringer.

Apple does not allow call blocking apps in the app store. You may be able to jailbreak your phone and download an app called iBlacklist. It can block all calls and even text messages.
