    Ok, my turn to ask for some help here. I'm getting killed with tele-crappium phone calls from every topic possible. Does anyone have any recommendations on the easiest/user friendly but affective app for blocking these calls? Even if I have to just block everything but my personal contacts, I don't care. All suggestions welcome..Thanks, gang!!

    Calls Blacklist PRO is what I use, you can block all calls except your contacts, private numbers, etc...

    Good deal. I just checked mine and I registered back in 2006. it does say that it never expires, but I don't know who all follows these rules, and now a days with all the spam bots, and whatnot, hopefully that app mentioned above will help you.

    I use Hiya, you should check it out and try it. But you should also be aware that some of these call blocking apps share the data they collect with their advertisers, which could put you right back in spam-caller territory.

    In Android 4.3 it was easy, I think you could just hold a finger on a call in your logs until a menu came up that included blocking that number. In Android 6.0.1 it is a bit more complicated. If you go to the Phone app > More > Settings > Call blocking > Block list > Log, you can then block calls from your call log. I don't know why Google made that more difficult to find.
