    Hey guys

    So Ive had this guy that refuses to stop calling. I remembered that somewhere on the phone I'd seen the call block feature. With my old Zte max you just clicked.. Send calls to voicemail.. And bam.. But here there's a call block list which doesn't seem to work. I put his number on it and I was still getting phone calls?? I literally had to block all incoming calls to get him to stop.. Then turned it off in am.. Since calls stopped.. Now they began again and I had to download something off of play store for it to work. Smh am I doing something wrong? Calls then call settings then call reject.. Where u can choose certain numbers to no avail.. Help please

    I have the LG Stylo, before it was rooted I used 'Extreme Call Blocker from Graythinker', after it was rooted I then began using 'Root Call SMS Manager by mdn software'. Both products have good customer support and both worked perfectly in my device. Both offers a lot of options to deal with undesired calls and sms. In my opinion sending a call to a voicemail is not really blocking anything since you still have undesired messages there waiting to be heard.

    I like Should I Answer? cause it gives me a log so I don't need to keep track of a blacklist/whitelist. Sometimes those are more annoying then anything having to maintain and manage something else in Android and keep it updated, instead of just simply long pressing something on a log and choosing the following options.

    Also I just upped my plan to the unlimited at 60 bucks a month. I had the 5 gig plan but I didn't know I was using so much. Never even reached 3or4gigs with my Zte max. Oh well. Also it includes 8gigs of hotspot. That's pretty cool. The suckyb part is that it includes caller ID feature.. Which I thought was the bloatware NameID there phone comes with... But no. When I tried to activate it it tried to charge me... I called metro and apparently the caller ID feature included is the ability for others to see that it's you calling. SMH what kind of crap is that. Lol
