How to Block Calls on iPhone | iPhone4 : Blocking Unwanted Calls

I always thought that this is inbuilt feature of iPhone, THE iPhone4. Well turns out that blocking calls on iPhone or the latest iPhone4 is not something provided by Apple. I guess, I was having this call blocking feature even on my Nokia mobile (few years I have Android :P). So I started searching internet about blocking unwanted calls on iPhone, as well blocking text messages on iPhone.

I would just love to have this blocking unwanted SMS feature on my phone. It is really annoying when you receive these random text messages. According to some people (as I am not sure here) : the call blocking feature is a service provided by telecom providers. Anyhow, neither Verizon nor AT&T offer this feature (free). I guess AT&T used to offer the call blocking facility at $5 per month (not sure whether it is available now and it works for iPhone). But why should I pay money to block these unwanted calls. What we want is a iPhone Service or iPhone App to block calls.
