Default Call Rejection / Auto Reject List

I am adding a huge list of numbers to my reject list, most of them start with 1-800's. Is there a wildcard or something to just end all 1-800 calls? I am sick of Telemarketers and other stuff. Thanks again.

The best solution is to avoid receiving the calls all together. Instead of cluttering your phone with a long list and spending a lot of time doing it, add your number to the Canadian Do Not Call list. It is regulated by the CRTC and will solve your problem.

Any other solutions? There is something that got to be quick and simple. All I need is a wildcard and there won't be a long list.

Since I did not use it in the version of Android you have (Gingerbread 2.3.5) I can't help you unless you update to ICS 4.0.

In ICS you can specify a reject list that matches certain criteria (Start with, Ends with, Includes, Exactly the same as). This way you could specify Start with 1-800 and it would reject all calls that start with 1-800.
