Try checking your account online, some providers have tools on their website that allow you to block specific numbers. If you can't find anything online you can just call the company.

Last resort is that there is apps in the market that automatically hang up on unwanted callers.

You can now get MetroPCS call blocker app for your phone. For $1, you can block unwanted calls as long as you like. I haven't activated it yet for my customers but people have said it's great. It's on the metroapp store free to download and install if you're subscribed to the monthly $1 to your bill. Hopefully it helps

True, but only if it's rooted. Some esteem users might not have it rooted. But thanks for the link I'm sure it'll help.

Cool

All you have to do is add the person to your contacts list, edit the settings in that specific contact so that it sends it DIRECT TO VOICE MAIL.

The bonus? It's FREE.

That is also true. But I wouldn't want my VM to be filled with unwanted messages. Isn't that the point of blocking/ignoring certain numbers? To not hear from them AT ALL? lol

Call blocking apps don't work on my Esteem and you'll be lucky if they don't stop working on yours. I was using Extreme Call Blocker for about 3 weeks and it was great. All of the sudden, not only did the app not block the call, it was auto answered. I've tried 3 different apps and none work. I've heard a few other people say they don't work on their Esteem either. The developers say it's the way LG designed the Android platform. Lg just plays dumb as to a correct fix to my problem. I don't want unwanted callers to go to my voice mail. I want the call blocked and no voice mail. Be nice if someone could figure this out.
