    I just bought 2 Rogers prepaid HTC Phone running Windows 8 from Future Shop last week. Unfortunately I don't see any Call Blocking on these phones even after I updated the phones (setting->phone update). I also bought a Nokia Lumia 520 which now has the blocking feature after the update. Could anyone plz tell me how I can get the blocking feature on my HTC phones. I've seen people having GDR2 or 3 update with Call+SMS Filter on the net but I don't see any of these. My phone says that it is updated with the latest software. Really need this to stop the telemarketers from calling me day & night. Thanks!

    I believe the call+SMS filter app is one of the features that comes with Lumia Amber. Here's the link to it anyway, but it probably won't work on your HTC 8X.

    I've just updated my HTC 8X (from Rogers) to the latest dev preview 8.1 update 1 and still no Call and SMS blocking feature...

    Do other HTC 8x owners have this feature? I wonder if it's carrier issue or htc

    Like already stated, it is only for Nokia phones.

    It's not just for Nokia phones... Samsung Ativ S and the new Ativ S neo both have call blocking feature

    for some reason HTC decided to not include this feature in their OEM firmware, even the new 'flagship' HTC One (M8) for Windows does not have it!

    Verizon provides that feature from the account web page.
