Block calls with no name on caller ID?

    All the Call Blocking Apps I could find seem to only have the ability to block all calls that the number isn't in your contacts list. I would assume (but maybe not) you can create an app that has access to not only read the phone number of the caller but if there is a matching caller ID name. If that were the case, I am perplexed why none of these apps have a feature to block all calls not in contact list *AND* Caller ID Name is blank or has no letters (in case the function returns the phone number) I know many apps keep a black list database but the problem is, many of the Robo Caller farms don't have all their numbers listed in the black list -- they are constantly changing their blocks of numbers they use -- but virtually none of them return a caller ID name. - you just see a phone number. And note, I am not talking about calls marked "Private", most apps block those.

    Is this really not technically possible or are most of these call blocking app developers overlooking this useful feature?

    Youmail is a call blocking app that I use.
    Unfortunately, spammers are able to spoof real numbers that still get through...

    Yup.
    That is why Blacklist Blocker also blocks numbers with no info attached to the caller ID.
