    I wanted to get some user opinions on what is the best call-blocking app out there for the prevail on boost mobile.

    I read through different posts and looked through the market, and I have no problem paying for a good app. I am looking for the best app that has all the options I could possibly want.

    Looking for opinions from current call blocking app users.

    thanks.

    I use PrivacyStar and it works very well. It is a paid app- but you should be aware that 99% of the "free" call blocking apps download your contacts to use crowdsourcing data to block or lookup calls. I also can't stand apps with ads that know what and where I am when on my cell.

    I like using Google Voice. It has all sorts of excellent call management features you can set. But alas, if you've already been handing out your real cell number, it's not really an option unless you can get your number ported. Wonder if anyone has managed to port a Boost Mobile number and keep their "shrinkage" plan?

    I spent hours reading into it and everything the market has, and at this point I;m only looking for a paid app, it's ovious that the goods are in the paid apps. Google is no good for what I want to do, and anything that charges a monthly fee is beat.

    Extreme Call Blocker Droid looked good, but from what I read the one's that use Root access work better. I looked into every one on the market and the best root one I can find looks like Call Master & Root Call Blocker Pro made by Fahrbot.

    Boost Mobile won't let me change my number again even if I pay for it since I did it so many times in the past, and I'm not paying them to block callers every month. And I can't kill the people I want to block, otherwise I'd go to jail, but it would be the easiest thing to do.

    I like the idea that I can have a caller hear any recording I make after the phone picks up, meaning I could make an mp3 with an operators voice stating the number is no longer in service, just as an added feature if I want to set it up like that, from what I read all 3 I listed above do that, I think, but I know Call Master does it and seems to be the best one.

    I already have Tasker, Tasker Profiles Manager, Zoom, AutomateIt Pro & Locale. I'm gonna see if I can combine them to act as a call blocker/answer and hang-up thing maybe if I combine them all, and if I can't or I can't find anything better than the 3 above I'll probably go with Call Master. I like lots of options even if I'm never gonna use them.

    For anyone that read this thread and was interested at all, I myself went with Call Master (the Pro version/purchased) by Fahrbot. I think it's the best one and it works for the Prevail and has a lot of options.

    I looked at Tasker on the Play store on my computer and it says that the Prevail isn't compatible...

    Not true. I've had it installed on mine for almost a year and been using it everyday and have it programmed to do just about everything you can possibly think of.

    I've got a root call blocker but fortunately I have never needed to use it. I guess getting married has a lot to do with it:shot:. No Ex GF calls to worry about anymore. lol :D

    I used this one and it's good but it FC Google Voice. I got random people calling/texting me thinking I'm the previous owner of this number after I told them I'm not.
