  1. None of the so called Call Blocker apps actually work. They will still allow unknown incoming calls in but simply don’t audibly ring your phone. How about a “real call blocker” app that compares incoming phone numbers to your contact list and if not contained on that list will not allow call to even show up (or be recorded) on your notifications. Even a pre-designed message to caller would be nice. Otherwise many companies have multiple phone numbers by which to call you from and all you end up doing is blocking each one as they call your phone.
