Not sure, but that sounds like a very Tasker thing.
I might try it out. I like options...

When I look thru my phone, I realize that the recent call list is where the restricted calls don't show up. (by restricted I mean calls with no number at all associated with them. My GF has her # unlisted/unidentified)
I guess what's happening is that I wake my phone, see that I have missed calls, and hit the "phone" button which brings up the recent call list. While a lot of the calls listed might be "unknown" (but still visible) numbers, any calls with no number associated don't show up at all. I realize now that they do show up in the "call history" though I wish I didn't have to think to check a second location to see that.

I'll have to figure out how to blacklist certain #'s. I know I can do it with spc but I always rather manage with less add-ons if possible.

Maybe I've just been too impatient with learning all the ins and outs of the phone. :-(
