    I've got an HTC Magic and was wondering how to block certain incoming phone numbers from calling me.

    There are a few apps on the market, but the best one by far if you don't ever want to even know a number was blocked and it just works is Root Call Blocker. You have to root your phone though.

    If you don't want to root there are some other apps that answer and hang up immediately, or just silence the ringer when certain numbers call, etc.

    Or there is the google voice option, if you use google voice for all your calls...

    For unrooted, try Call Control.

    This is what I do.

    I created a contact just for wrong numbers / solicitors. Every time I get an annoying call, I add that number to that contact.

    Through contact management on Android, I set all calls from that contact to go straight to voicemail. And through Google Voice, I set up that contact to be blocked completely. And the only number I ever give out is my Google Voice number.

    So chances are they'll be blocked completely. But just in case they get my T-Mobile number, they'll go straight to voicemail.
