Can I unblock private numbers?

I have a Blackberry Tour and have been getting blown up by private numbers. This just started so I don't have a clue. I did a search but didn't find what I was looking for. Thanks.

Sprint does not offer a "private number" blocking service. I have heard that their are services that will route the call thru an 800 number to get the true ID info, but I dont know much about them.

The short answer is no.

Thanks. I have a program to either send the number straight to voicemail or just pick up and hang up but the problem is I use my phone as a work phone as well and some of my clients actually have private numbers.

Yeah that can be annoying. The best thing I can suggest is getting a google voice number and having the caller announce their name. Then you know if the incoming call is a client or just some person calling you from a blocked number trying to solicit you.

The thing is, you would have to ask your customers to please call your "new office number" that will route them to your cell if your out of the office. Not sure if its an option for you, but at least it allows you to answer those blocked calls while still avoiding those that are unwanted.

voice.google.com to request an invite. Or, sometimes people on here will give them away if they have extras.
