Blocking Unwanted Diverted Calls.
Hello,
I am having a strange problem and I will be very glad if someone can help me out.

It seems someone has diverted his/her call to my mobile number. So when that person is busy/not available it gets diverted into my mobile. We get a small arrow mark before the number when such calls are received to indicate that its a diverted calls.
Earlier i used to tell them that the person whom they are calling has diverted his/her call to my number so I am getting the call. Sometimes they are polite and sometimes very rude. Is there any solution for me? I have traced that mobile number, which is diverting calls to my mobile. I called that number but no use they are funny.
But this is very peculiar problem.
I am wondering how these mobile service provides allow anybody to divert their calls to anybody's numbers without their permission.

Can I block others from diverting into my number from my mobile?
So Please help me to come out from this problem.
Thanks for all in advance.

Don't know which part of earth you are on, but first stop to resolve this should be your Mobile operator.

Why don't you call the person who is diverting and ask then to cease & desist. If he/she does not, or you do not know, then start brushing up on your theatrical and creative fictional storytelling skills.

I would write a letter to BSNL with a CC to the local police station, mentioning a few specific numbers from which the calls came and time of those calls. I would also follow it up with both. If it doesn't work I would divert some of my calls to the culprit. The possibilities are endless really.
I would also check with AH. Griveance is going to be under Lokpal. So ...........

On the off-chance that you would have a jail broke iPhone, download a program called iBlacklist and add the number to the blacklist with action 'pick up and hangup'. Problem gone, you won't notice a thing. Works great for me, instead of 25 text messages with publicity per day I get about one every 2 days that sneaks through. Any charities come callingI blacklist their number and *poof* gone.

Else, some phones have settings that allow the phone to refuse incoming call diverts. Check your manual.

If you know who the offender is, pay them a visit.

Best possible advice, also visit their customer service centers spread across the city .

I thought most of the SMS were store-and-forward. With two gateways exchanging messages based on pre-determined settlement costs. Real-time voice is another story..

Whoa, you lost me there. All I know is that with the application you can block (sms and voice) based on the number, with different actions available (pick up and hangup, don't answer, busy signal, divert to voice mail). For sms you have an additional filter with user defined keywords,e.g. if you put 'orange' in the list then any message containing that string will automatically be put in a separate folder or discarded outright, irrespective of the sender's number. It's totally transparent to the user, the phone doesn't ring, nothing appears on the screen etc. If you want to go extreme there's also a whitelist option where you only accept calls and texts from people whose number is in the list, all the rest is blocked. Everything can be customized so that you use a blacklist during office hours but at night and weekends if you don't want to be disturbed you can program it to switch to whitelist.

Very useful program Cost me 12 USD but I'd gladly pay 10 times that price for it.

I have a cheaper whitelist. A second simcard (came free with the phone) where only four people know the number. I call nobody else with it.

Not very useful in the US Where you are charged for both incoming & outgoing calls & SMS.
