    I'd like to prevent accidentally calling numbers in another country, which is very expensive. What app can do that? I have seen mentions of the following, but all are obsolete and off of Google Play.
    • Root Call Blocker Pro
    • Call Guard
    • Call Blocker Gold
    • Outgoing Call Blocker

    Contact your carrier and let them know to block these outgoing calls.

    Thank you. The carrier doesn't offer that service, but it seems that an app could do it. Do you know of any?

    I don't know--but my grandson keeps accidentally butt-dialing me EARLY [my time] in the morning. :eek:

    When I am in a foreign country, and call to that same country, that is an international call, and I need to remember to use Skype or some other service, not telephony. But it is easy to forget that.

    Every carrier I've been with can block international calling, premium rate, etc. and I'm sure many do. I think a custom dialler app could do it, but probably no devs have seen the need to write one. Or if they have, they're really to show you ads, and not do anything useful

    I used to manage w/MCI years ago in the general operator and directory assistance departments and you won't believe the number of people that don't pay attention or just have fat fingers and dial away.
