    Is there any apps out there that could hide an incoming call from a preselected number so that when the number calls my phone, it will not be put on hold or disconnected, just ringing but not showing up on my screen?

    That's not going to stop your girlfriend/boyfriend from asking who is calling...

    Oh? If the app is hiding who is calling, then I would'nt even know when they are calling ;)

    I don't know of any such app, but on the Eris, at least, there is an option on the contact to have calls from that contact routed directly to voicemail, so the phone should not ring.

    A simple call filter should suffice.

    Just add the contact and name it "Unidentified Caller" you will know who it is when they call, anyone else would see undentfied caller and you can ignore it on the grounds I don't answer unidentified calls. Anyone checking your call log would see... you get the point.

    Haha ;) The point was not to hide it from someone else, but for myself. My boss calls me ALL the time, even though I have said to him that I would let him know if I have the time to take extra shifts etc., but you know, some just don't get it. So the point would be; boss calls me -> I have put him in the ignore list -> it just calls and does not show up on my phone -> boss thinks im busy with other stuff -> I can use my phone for other things insted of having to leave it on the table all day long -> boss does not get pissed at me for ending his calls -> no ww3. Simple as that ;)

    As I said you need a call filter.

    What phone do you have?
    On my Eris, i can go to 'edit contact' and almost to the very bottom there is an option to send calls directly to voicemail.
    Personally i would think that's better.
    Because if you just dont answer, he might get pissed off that you are ignoring him.
    But if it goes directly to voicemail, he'll know it never rang. Maybe your battery died? Maybe you're out of cell phone reception range?

    There is an app called 'Super Private Conversation' ; I use it to ignore a few telemarket numbers that call me regularly, when they call it automatically forwards them to voicemail, but I think there is an option for it to just not show the number calling.

    Add the unwanted number to contacts. Then edit your contact options for *that* contact to automatically send them to voicemail.

    I think there's also an option in GoogleVoice to send specific callers to specific voicemail messages. For example, sending your psychotic, stalker ex to a message that says, "I'm sorry, this number is no longer in service." :D
