Default Is There a Call-Blocking App???

I have someone who's calls I wish to block. No I don't want to forward him to voicemail (even though I already have). I want the phone's caller ID to recognize the caller and simply bloc the call (I don't want the phone to ring and I don't want it to accept any voicemails from this guy).

I know google voice has this feature, but I don't want to activate the single number version of GV (I'm not ready to have only one number).

I read a similar thread that was posted here some time ago, but there were no definitive answers on it:

http://androidforums.com/support/6077-caller-id-based-blocking-call-forwarding.html

I was wondering if anyone was aware of any apps that could be used to block a specific incoming number, which could be installed without having to root the phone.

I'm on a MOTO Droid. TIA

Extreme Call Blocker looks like a pretty solid application that does what you want it to do - it blocks calls that you set to a certain blocklist.

Its $4 but hey, it does what you want right?

I've been using aFirewall (free version, ad supported) on my Hero for several months.

Works great. Have only used it for call blocking - not SMS, so not sure. But it seems solid.

There's a paid version with no ads. Otherwise, I think the functionality is the same.

CallFilter almost does what you want. It will quickly answer (before it rings) and quickly disconnect calls from specific numbers and doesn't allow them to get to voicemail. It does register as a missed call though so it would count against your calling plan.

Check with your carrier, I believe some allow a number to be blocked, then whatever phone you have will never know there was a call.

Default Re: Is There a Call-Blocking App???

Super - Private Conversion is what you're looking for. It's free, blocks the calls from coming in (including v.mail), and the only place the calls are logged is within the app, not in the standard call log. I've used it to block an automated telemarketer, and it runs like a champ.

If you have Verizon and are signed up for verizonwireless.com, you can go into your account and block numbers, up to 5 I think.

yeah i have aFirewall because I have had a problem with people calling me on restricted...it was literally over 10 times a day! Installed that, blocked "restriced calls" and never had to deal with it since...pretty much my most favorite app ever! I paid 1.99 for the full app

You can write the developer and ask nicely but don't be surprised if they tell you "no".

If you have Google Voice, you can block specific numbers. I have this Time Warner telemarketer who keeps calling me from the same number. So I just added that number as "Telemarketer 1" on my Google contacts, and added a rule to block him. So next time I get a call from that number, they'll get that "beep beep beep This number has been disconnected..." message.

Google Voice, son...

Sirius keeps calling me, added them to my black list using Call Blocker... I have it pick-up and then hang-up rather than going to voice mail. I love it! Great satisfaction in having these people put in the kill file!

there is a restraining order app you can get down at your local police station.

no matter what app you get to block xxx-xxx-xxxx, nothing but a restraining order will prevent him from dialing *69-xxx-xxx-xxxx, or dialing from a cheap prepaid.

the law is on your side, do the right thing.

call blocking apps are for examples like rafairchild2 describes... not stalkers

The new android app named Automatic call blocker. This android app allow us to block calls from from known spammers (list updates daily) automatically, block one caller, all ‘private’ numbers, whole area codes, or whitelist all your contacts and block everyone else.

I use Mr. Call Block. It's free. It'll pick up and hang up or you can set it to send them straight to VM. You can add numbers to the block list. I personally pick up and hang up. It'll also auto block suspected spam numbers. i.e 1-800 numbers. Be careful. I love it so far.

I used Mr. Number for a while, but it keeps getting more intrusive. It got worse about putting popups in front of the phone controls. I have given up on it and am trying some of these others.

You can do that using Tasker, if I'm not mistaken.
