    Hi, I currently have installed "Call Control - Call Blocker" to block unknown callers, however it goes straight to the voice mail. I don't want it to do that, I want it to let them know they've been blocked because their number is with held, is this possible? Reason being, I may sometimes get business calls which are from private numbers.

    Sounds like you are looking for a way to lose business calls...
  3. Why would you want to let blocked numbers know that they've been blocked? You'll only save them time and confusion so they can start harassing you via another channel.

    And, like Clevo says, it's a surefire way to lose business calls.

    Would be better to just tell them to unblock their number and try the call again.

    Either way, I'm not sure that what you're wanting to do is possible with an app. I would think that your phone carrier would need to set up that type of recording.

    If you use Google Voice, you could setup a separate voicemail greeting for certain callers.

    Not something you can do with just an app. Need GV or your phone provider to set this up.
