    Only your phone carrier can help you.   Contact them directly.

    blacklist is a jailbreak app - if you jailbreak your phone you're on your own.    T-Mobile should be able to blacklist phone #'s for you.

    I did the following so I would no know they (junk calls) were calling.

     

    I used Google to find a silent ringtone and put that on my iPhone. Then I created a contact for that number and associated the silent ringtone to that contact.

     

    When that number calls I do not hear it ring, so it does not bother me. Plus I can associate other junk calls to the same contact and the all get the silent treatment.

     

    Unsolicited SMS text messages get the same treatment.

     

    I got a junk call tonight, and only knew it came in beacuse I had a missed call, but I was not disturbed by the call. I was actually glad I wasted their time for no benefit.

    you may want to try an app called "youmail" it might be able to help you. it enable you to do different thing from any of your caller and that including private message for that paticular caller, and more.
