Rats, I was saving this message to eventually try this and when I do, the site tells me it's "Not available for this cell phone number." The little "?" bubble explains that actually it's the phone, "The cell phone associated to this number is not compatible with Call & Message Blocking. You will need to upgrade your phone to use this service." My phone is new, a Samsung Convoy 2, but it's merely a dumb phone or possibly categorized as a feature phone, it's still one that doesn't require a data plan.

I can't have this service, which is actually useful, but I can have a ringback tone (people calling me hear music instead of the usual tones), go figure. I don't really understand what either one has to do with the phone itself.
