I've been getting a lot of calls from some random number which I don't answer. I finally blocked it through the phone, but am still getting calls.
I then blocked my girlfriends number and had her call but it also still came through, does it only block you from calling, not the other way around?

There's an issue with it if your carrier is Verizon. They actually have a service that you need to purchase if you want to block more then 5 numbers. Assumption is, they(VZW) most likely is causing the filter not to work properly.
You can pop any other SIM in it and it works fine.

Actually I have found it works fine and I have blocked more than five numbers on a standard VZW account. The only quirk I have encountered is if I am on a call and a blocked number dials me, call waiting will beep at me but not give an option to answer or ignore.

1020 user. The setting is great to have, and should block incoming calls and SMS. If the caller leaves a voicemail, you will have a chance to hear it.
SMS that is blocked goes into its own inbox. It has become very invaluable.

Lumia 928 on Verizon here. I have more than 5 calls on block list - I went over 5 last night to test - and it's working.
Haven't fully tested this on a load, but it hasn't failed me once yet.
Also think I need to do more testing, but reporting what I've observed so far.

Just did some further testing and blocked my girlfriend and others to test.
It works when I blocked a voip phone.
When I block another Verizon wireless number, the SMS is blocked BUT the phone call still comes thru.
Is it because the person is on my contacts lists?
Really need more information on how exactly the app works along with a lot more testing.
Just wanted to follow up.

OK lets try this again.
This thread is mainly about the 928 on Verizon (822 on Verizon, apparently has the same issue too)
So, if you don't have a 928 on Verizon (or 822 on Verizon) please try and refrain from posting to keep this thread clean.
We already know it works with other devices on other carriers.
