Has anyone gotten this to work on their Lumia 928 or Lumia 822. I performed the GDR2/Amber Update to my Lumia with no issue whatsoever but numbers i add to the call block list on the device those numbers are still getting through.

I am having the same problem on my Lumia 928 after doing the Amber update and it is important to note that this feature/app is part of the Amber update on any Windows Phone 8 device.  I block a number and it keeps getting through and the app does not even count that it has blocked the number.  Mine has been doing it to a toll-free number from a company I have been dealing with.  I will not go into details but let's just say they don't like the payment arrangement they originally agreed to and want more $$$$ from me.  Are the numbers that are still getting through toll-free for you as well?

Do you have the number entered in the blocker app EXACTLY the same as it shows up in your caller ID?

Yes I used the add from call history option when the number first called after installing the Amber update I pressed and held the screen on the number until the menu popped up and pressed "Block Number" When it calls back I do the same thing but when I select "Block number" I get a message telling me that said number is already blocked with an OK button.

Call me clueless, but I don't see the option to block  - we have a Lumia 928, with AMBER installed.  I go to Settings>>Extras + Info, and I don't see the options as shown here:

Long pressing a number on my recent call list gives me one option: Delete item.

Is there something else I need to install?  O am I just not looking in the right place?  Thanks for any and all help.

The Extras+Info just gives information about your phone's carrier settings, version of the Nokia software AMBER in our cases.  The feature is off by default I found it in mine when I went into settings under the phone section and you can turn any or all of those features on.

I must be blind, I'm still not seeing it.  The only part of the screen not showing in this is my own ph number and voicemail info at the top.  I scroll past that and this is all I see.  Where should I be looking?

Nevermind, I read this thread - , installed the SysApp Pusher, and now have SMS and Call filtering, and some other goodies to play with.  There is so much I don't know about this phone, and it seems the more I learn, the more there IS to learn.  No wonder there is confusion and complaints about things not working.....

And just FYI, I tested the SMS call blocking and it doesn't seem to work.  I blocked my home phone, then called the cell form the home phone.  The call came in, the cell phone rang, I flipped it over to "silence it", and the call went to voicemail. And the # of blocked calls still read "0".   Smiley Sad

My mistake the setting itself at least on my Lumia 928 was the second to the last one in the settings area itself.  It's labeled Call and SMS filter.
