comment Unlock bootloader using fastboot using Ubuntu/Linux
Often you just need to add a udev rule for the device. Do you see it under lsusb when it's in fastboot mode? My guess is that if you compare the device/vendor IDs in fastboot mode to the normal ones that they'll be different (the poor-man's solution in some cases is to use sudo fastboot to get around the udev rule, but I don't know if that's entirely recommended).

comment Block A Number From Leaving Voicemail?
I opened the app, pressed the blocklist button in the top right (the circle with a line through it) and then it gave me three tabs: "Hang up", "Voicemail" and "Exceptions". Then I pressed the "Hang up on Someone" button on the first tab to add the number I wanted to block. This is on a Galaxy Nexus.

comment Block A Number From Leaving Voicemail?
How did you set up Mr. Number? It maintains two block lists, and one should be to answer + hang up immediately (the other is straight to voicemail). I use it exactly like you're describing. What happened when you tried to use it?

comment ADB does not work in boot loader mode
Are you checking adb devices? 'Cause that's not where it will be when it's at the bootloader - you should see it under fastboot devices.
