Taking back control of your mobile phone...

I just posted the article I wrote up describing the project I created where I'm creatively blocking calls to my Windows Mobile device. Posted it on my VB.NET Mobile Blog. Enjoy!

Thanks for the feedback/comments!
I've noticed an increasing number of comments from folks who come across my blog after searching for something...mostly goofy little things like the errors I've come across, or other technical issues I've run into and people who ran into the same thing that were able to solve their problem after reading my blog.

It's happened before in other states. The company who makes the product in this case is saying the source code is a protected trade secret and shouldn't be disclosed but the attorney for the guy says they'll sign ......

Taking back control of my mobile phone - a home brewed automatic call blocker.
One thing I've found increasingly annoying is telemarketing calls to my mobile phone. When I glance down and see that 800 number calling I usually press the "Ignore" softkey and go about my business.
