I was completely pissed off, as i was receiving so many calls from some guy who was using different numbers every now and then, being a girl and not tech savvy i couldn't figure out what to do about this, ie how to block the calls . Nokia N 900 doesn't have such feature as auto rejection or blocking system so i had gone through all those python and rootsh memo software but i couldn't do any of it. And all of frustration went in and i thought of just changing my number or changing my phone instrument to get some other that had black listing number option. but eventually i browsed and searched my phone the applications software in which i saw my contacts in purple color software that had some blocking option written in its description i downloaded it, then searched in its settings that had the option of Group: block calls from , i then selected the numbers i had saved in name of unwanted and then went back on settings main screen where on the left it mentions: monitor incoming calls for , clicking on that u select the : auto reject calls and save it..it would say shut down and restart your phone and i did the same. and trust me it really worked i checked as i put my another number on its block list and when i called it automatically rejected the call and my number came as busy, on the other hand my n 900 showed call rejected from this number ...wow wow wow.. am so happy now i was so sad and feeling helpless at the hands of such insane people who ruined my calm for so long unnecessarily. wanted to share this with everyone i know it really sucks getting calls from such people.

Something which I really missed on the N900 was a good call blocking software. After being hounded day after day by credit card sales people and people trying to give me low interest loans, I had to find a way to get this done. A bit of hunting on the web and picking up a little bit of Python, I hacked a working solution to this problem. It’s not a perfect solution, and is a hack job, but it should do till someone writes up a good application to handle unwanted callers. Step 1: Install Dependencies on your phone Before we go to the call block script, you’ll need to install a few apps on your phone. First you’ll need to gain root access to your phone, so head over to your App Manager and install rootsh. If you can’t find it in your app manager, head over to this URL and download rootsh – maemo.org/downloads/product/ Maemo5/rootsh/ If you haven’t installed a Python application in your phone, you’ll have to install the Python runtimes on your device. If you haven’t installed the extras-devel repositories, check for the Maemo 5 instructions here – pymaemo.garage.maemo.org/ installation_device.html. Once you have that repository installed on your phone, search and install maemo-python-device-env to install python. Step 2: Download and move the Script to your phone Once that’s installed, download this zip file and extract the python script from the file and save this file your device under Nokia N900/ as callblock.py . Step 3: Create the Block list with numbers you’d like to block Before running this script, you’ll need to create a text file with the numbers you need to block. Add as many numbers you’d like to block on a new line. The file contents should like like below: +918067337555 +918067348300 +918066167590 Save this file as BlockedCallers.txt in the same location you saved the call block script. Please enter the numbers in the format you see when you get the calls, so you needn’t enter it exactly as I’ve put it up. Step 4: Run the script on your phone

Block Unwanted calls on your N900 Posted by Vinu Thomas on February 22, 2010 in Device Tips, Maemo Apps | 75 Comments and 0 Reactions 0 digg 3 Share Update: This article is outdated, you can download a pre-packaged Callblocker package based on the code on this page from the Maemo Garage – https://garage.maemo.org/projects/callblocker/ . You can the deb file from the project page and install it on your N900. Something which I really missed on the N900 was a good call blocking software.

Step 4: Run the script on your phone Now to start the call block script, head over to the terminal, get into the root mode by entering the following: root and then start the callblock application and background it: python /home/user/MyDocs/callblock.py & Make sure you type the command as is, with the capitalizations in MyDocs typed in, or the command will fail. Now you’ve got the script running on your phone in the background and you can close the Terminal window. Your phone will block any calls with the numbers you’ve saved in the BlockedCallers.txt file. Anytime you want to change the numbers, you’ll have to edit the BlockedCallers.txt text file and add numbers into it. You’ll have to restart the script to get the latest edits to your block numbers active. Also when ever you restart the phone, you’ll have to follow the last steps to restart the call block application. So remember when you restart the phone, make sure you go to the terminal and enter the following two lines into it: root python /home/user/MyDocs/callblock.py & I’ve been trying to figure out how to auto-start this script, but I haven’t been successful at that yet. I’ll update you as soon as I figure that one out. If you have more tips on how to improve this script, or know how to autostart the script when the phone boots up, let us know by commenting on this post.

He clearly mentions that this is a stop gap arrangement until until steps up to create a real application with this functionality. What I’d like is an SMS blocking app as well, as SMS spam has really increased over the last one year or so. but u can some important info about it. on the website http://thehandheldblog.com/2010/02/22/how-to-block-unwanted-callers-on-the-n900/

It is very easy. Just install the application named Netqin Mobile Guard(www.netqin.com)>open the application>go to call manager >choose blacklist > and finally enter the mobile numbers you want to avoid.
