    Since Info & Extras has been updated today, and the call+SMS filter is part of it. Someone might want to test this.,,, while I get the Amber update back on my phone,,, lol
    call & SMS Filter is it's own app. . .

    It actually comes as part of the Extras & Info,,, Nokia Spam Filter ;)

    If you uninstall the filter and want it back later.
    Open Extras & Info, tap on 'more info' wait about 5 seconds, close it and go back to settings and the call+SMS filter will be back ;)

    It seems a CDMA related issue. Most likely will get fixed in next OTA update, I hope end of this year.

    I wonder if the blocked numbers get written to the SIM? And then the CDMA voice call completely bypasses it?

    Yep, seems to be working on VZW. It kicks them right to VM.

    I blocked 2 random numbers I don't know and one of those numbers was blocked again as it showed up on my live tile. I mainly use it to block my sister in law cause she sends stupid videos bia YouTube. I don't know if you can separate SMS only and not the call incase its an emergency.

    Working for me as well after the update.
    Glad to see this has been fixed. I was starting to believe that Verizon didn't want us to have the feature.

    What steps are you guys using to block calls/sms as I have looked and I cannot for the life of me figure it out. I have done the GDR3 update.

    Make sure you have extras+info installed, as it's part of that. If you don't have extras+info get SysApp Pusher and get it from there. if you do have extras+info installed and you don't see the filter, open it(extras+info) and tap on More info, wait about 5 seconds and you should see the filter back in Settings.

    OK got all this done but when I go to a number that I want to block under recent calls there is not a setting that I see anyway to get it on the block list.

    Tap and hold the number and a menu will come up with the option.

    I am using a 1020 on AT&T. I'm glad the issue was resolved for you guys. I do have a question. I was wondering if you guys had noticed a problem with mms messages still coming through on blocked numbers? SMS are blocked fine but it doesn't block mms from the same number.

    Im new to Windows Phone and found this thread when searching the forum for blocked call not working.

    I can add the number but sometimes it strips the + before country code so when the same number calls again it wont match the list of blocked number. However, when I try to re-add it says the number is already blocked.

    Does GDR3 fix this and how do I get that? Is still just available for devs?
