    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?

    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.

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

    Sorry custom ROM or as i prefer to call it, firmware.

    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???
