    I know there are great apps like Stats for Android which monitor outgoing and incoming call time, but are there any apps that can do the following...

    1. Block outgoing calls to costly 08 numbers, or at least warn before making these calls. Most network providers don't cover these calls under your montly minutes allowance

    2. Give you an option to re-direct these calls through another local number as ones provided by 0800Buster.co.uk: Call 0800, 0808 & 0500 Numbers Free From Your Mobile by the tap of a button

    3. Are there any apps integrated with saynoto0870.com that will give you suggestions on alternative numbers to call when trying to call such a premium number?

    I've searched and searched and cannot seem to find any apps for this. Would be extremely time saving having these features built straight in, and would keep an eye out to make sure you don't get a bill shock at the end of the month ;)

    Tasker has a Call Block feature that may help. It also has a Call Divert feature that would allow you divert certain calls to other numbers. With these features you would be able to block/divert calls to numbers beginning with 0800, 0808 or any number you wish.

    Tasker is available in the Market with the obligatory 24-refund availability, or you can download off-Market and get a 14-day free trial here:
