i know that it's quite a stupid question, but i'm not a techy person.
i have read somewhere here that a mobile number can be blocked in another mobile. so how does that happen? i tried calling a friend and my bf but it always says that the number i have called can't be reached, and there was no answer. can somebody please explain how does a block work? so i would know if my bf has officially blocked my number in his phone. thanks.

Dearest Justinetime,
Your plight appears to be a common one. I believe that in Turkey if you have no credit on your phone then you can also receive no calls. Maybe they are temporarily financially embarassed? Try sending cash immediately (or a new cell phone). It that fails, you can indeed wallow in paranoia and be sure that everyone has blocked you - including your own mother.
Hope this helps

I know how to block text messages, it is on text menu of my mobile, but when it comes to blocking calls, my mobile doesnt allow for individual blocks but cathegories such as "international calls", "incoming calls" and etc. I dont know if other kind of mobiles permit individual blocks. But if the person's operator is Vodafone (those starting with 54...) there's a small trick that u can block ppl (everyone!! not individual) calling u when ur mobile isnt switched off or out of reach in fact and u still know who tries to cal u All the way.. Individual blocking is something I havent heard of

I have a Samsung U100 and it's easy to block people from your phonebook: Call log --> Call Manager --> reject list.

But it doesnt work when you call anonymously.. The call-rejecter only recognizes the exact number, so when you call with a hidden number, they cant block you.

aha... ok... thanks everyone... i dont have the individual block list either, so i was kinda confused. and yes i believe that my paranoia is getting the best out of me, because i'm not in a good situation right now. i wouldn't have thought of it that way, if everything was fine between us, but being in a bad situation right now gives me the right to feel paranoid don't you think?

oh and thank you for your sarcasm. i feel so much better now. i guess just because my boyfriend is turkish, i need to wire him money or send him a mobile phone, because, after all... isn't that what they all are after? money, right? just because you have a narrow minded impression about turkish boys, doesn't necessarily mean it applies to all of them. so please, spare me your sarcasm. i only ask for the help of people who are "genuinely willing to help". and it is my right to wallow in my paranoia, being on shaky ground right now. and unless i feel like sharing you the intimate details of what i am going through right now, i don't see why my paranoia should be your concern.
