Call Control Spam Blocker for BlackBerry

callcontrol While call blockers are really nothing new Call Control really caught my eye. Normal call blockers depend on you creating your own blacklist of phone numbers. Call Control turns that on its head by providing a preloaded user generated blacklist of telemarketers and other spam calls. Kind of a cool idea like a spam blacklist resource for your BlackBerry. The app is a bit pricey at $7.99 but it does have a free 14 day trial for you to kick the tires. Check it out at this link in App World. They also have a Lite version of the app but it looks pretty limited.

Call Control Features:

  • Blocks calls without a ring.
  • Call blocking by personal and community blacklists.
  • Automatic community blacklist updates from

  • Blacklist and report calls directly from the BlackBerry call log.
