Nokia releases Call+SMS filter tool for Nokia Lumia Devices (Amber devices first)

Nokia has added yet another feature to Lumia devices, the Call+SMS block feature allows you to go into your Call History and block those pest tele-marketer or an obsessive ex-girl/boyfriend or whatever situation you find yourself in for wanting to block a contact/number, I wouldn't judge you.

It's a nice tool and it's rolled out on devices with the Amber update, I just got it on my Lumia 1020.

 Here it is...
 Opening the tool takes you to the status page that shows you how many calls and SMS have been blocked, you can also see your list of blocked numbers (you can have a total of 1000 blocked numbers)

Click on advanced; Here you can

  • Choose to block hidden numbers.
  • Set Live Tile to show when numbers are blocked
  • Turn notifications on/off

Update your extras+info tool and then go back to settings, you should see the new call+SMS Block feature. If you don't, try rebooting your phone.

To add a number to the blocked list, go to your Call History and long press on the number you want to block and choose "block number" option.
