This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Mathew the Question you point to is only resolved if you can use Google Voice service. At this time this service is not available in many countries. –  Doliveras Nov 11 '11 at 18:34
I my contry, Brazil, google voice is still unavaiable for Android. –  Diogo Nov 11 '11 at 18:35
@Doliveras: There are two other answers there which do not require Google Voice, both of which work just fine. –  eldarerathis Nov 11 '11 at 19:57

I am not sure about an option in the system itself but the app mr number will do that for you: The lifehacker article talks about the app http://lifehacker.com/5648876/call-block-unlimited-automates-call-blocking-and-routing-on-android-phones

I use this app too. It have a comunity list with telemarketers reported by the users. very powerfull. –  Doliveras Nov 11 '11 at 18:39

Not positive which version they added the feature or if this is an HTC/T-Mo addition, but on my HTC G2 (running 2.3.3) it can be done without any apps.

While viewing a contact, I can go into the menu -> options and change the ringtone or route calls directly to voicemail. I configured this for a single contact I've called "Blocked" and add numbers to this contact as needed.

Even better, within Google Voice, which I use for voicemail, I go to this entry, edit the Google Voice settings for that entry, and change the selection from which phones to ring to block the caller.

Now my phone doesn't ring and I don't get any voicemails to delete.
