    On my last Note 4 and current S7 Edge I have block calls set up as I get more calls than I like from all over the country. I don't answer any of them, but place them in the reject calls / block calls category then delete them. Yet when any of them call back it shows up as block calls as a notification. Irritates the heck out of me!!! I want them gone, not keep coming back. What is the point of blocking/rejecting a call if they keep showing up???

    Are there any apps/programs out there that will BLOCK the calls so they don't show up anymore?

    You will be able to do this using MacroDroid by setting up a macro that will automatically reject call numbers identified within the macro. I am not sure what happens once the call is rejected , as far as notifications are concerned.

    Nope, macrodroid won't work either. I just got this from them:

    I assume you are talking about a notification. You can use the clear notification action if you want to clear it, but MacroDroid cannot stop your system or other apps from creating notifications.

    I was never sure about notification, but you have confirmed that the phone still notifies you even if the call is rejected. If you do find a solution please post.

    There is no solution, except for changing the behaviour in a custom f/w.

    I've been using "calls blacklist pro" for that; it blocks calls and messages and you won't see those in your log...

    I have been looking at Calls Blacklist Pro, I understand that if you want to block SMS messages you have to use this app as the default messaging app. How have you found that in practice - any issues with it please?

    Would like an idea before I commit.

    Thanks

    It's ok, but the built-in app, I have to say, is much better. In fact, since I've recently bought a new sim with a new number, I've decided to drop it.
    However, if you're really desperate to conceal those calls and texts from your log, I guess this app, or any other like it, is a necessary evil.

    So far nothing works. It is really irritating when the same "block calls" keep showing up everyday, sometimes several times a day. You'd think the latest and greatest smartphones would have a feature to STOP that???
