I just bought 2 prepaid HTC Phone from Future Shop last week. Unfortunately I don't see any Call Blocking on these phones even after I updated the phones (setting->phone update). I also bought a Nokia Lumia 520 which now has the blocking feature after the update. Could anyone plz tell me how I can get the blocking feature on my HTC phones. Really need this to stop the telemarketers from calling me day & night. Thanks!

Call and sms filter is only a nokia thing. it does not nor can it sucessfully be installed on an HTC 8X I have the 8X myself futher to that windows phone 8.1 does not enable call blocking either
I emailed HTC support and they say it's up to the carrier discretion whether to include Call & SMS blocking feature...
"In this case, please keep in mind that the GDR3 update you receive from Rogers, the carrier you have in Canada, may have come with different features than other updates release by other carriers. Keep in mind that when an update is release, it is up to the carrier’s discretion of when the update is release and also the features it will include.
I can assure you your feedback will be passed along to the proper department. Keep in mind your thoughts are imperative for us to grow as a community. Remember our goal is always to provide you with top of the line devices as well as a spectacular HTC experience."
I've just updated HTC 8X to the latest dev preview 8.1 update 1 and still no Call and SMS blocking feature..
HTC is dead wrong in what there telling you,,I have a Lumia and a Ativ both running Windows 8.1 DP Version,,I have call blocking on both devices from day one even when running Windows 8.0,,This option is part of the firmware installed by the OEM'S,, HTC chose not to add this feature to some of there handsets,,There fore you cannot block any numbers,,Rogers or any other carrier cannot do anything to help you out,,,Good luck getting any O/S or firmware updates from HTC,,,
