First Orion put a press release out today announcing that it’s call blocking features have been improved. You can view the press release in it’s entirety after the jump, however, if you would just like to give PrivacyStar a go and check it out for yourself, First Orion is offering a 7-day free trial of PrivacyStar.
Reverse Phone Lookup
PrivacyStar gives you ultimate control of your phone! From your call log you can add any number to your PrivacyList which will stop that caller from calling you again! Don’t know whose number that is? Use the PrivacyStar™ lookup feature to determine the caller’s name and decide to add them to your PrivacyList or to your Contacts so the next time they call you’ll know who’s calling! Additionally, any number you create a complaint for is made available to regulatory agencies on your behalf. You have complete visibility into all numbers blocked and all complaints filed at all times! To allow a caller to call you again is just as easy – simply delete the number from your PrivacyList.
PrivacyStar features include:
- Report offenders to authorities directly using PrivacyStar
- Block unwanted callers from your call log menu or enter numbers manually
- Block private or unknown callers
- Block Exchanges
- On demand PrivacyStar caller identification
- Fully integrated with your PrivacyStar.com portal

PrivacyStar, is a service launched just at the end of last year by First Orion that is best described as a BlackBerry call blocker on steroids.

PrivacyStar is a premium BlackBerry application service, however, First Orion is offering a Free 7-Day Trial that requires nothing more than downloading and installing the application on your BlackBerry.
