    I can see how to block a specific number. I can also see how to block calls that come in as "unknown". Is there a way without going to a 3rd party to block calls coming in as "private"?

    I was under the impression that you needed to add numbers to a blacklist in order to reject calls from them. Can't be done without a 3rd party app as far as I know.

    As far as I can think, the most you can do would be to block numbers NOT in your contacts and that would block private and unknown numbers, as well as any Jow Schmo who randomly calls you. That's really about it.

    To fight this, I personally use Google Voice. There's a feature forcing any callers not in your Contacts to announce themselves. This has stopped quite a few telemarketing and automated systems from reaching me. Maybe that will help you as well...

    I like the Google voice idea. Can you outline for me how it is done. Thanks

    Try Smart Notify and check option in Settings/Call/Reject hidden numbers
