  1. Most of the important features of these apps have been disabled with recent versions of android.
    * SMS Text blocking not supported by Android 4.4/KitKat or later
    ** Hang up not supported by Android 5.0 or later

    Do you know of any apps that are still relevant?

  2. PLEASE…PLEASE…Is there an app that can automatically, WITHOUT RINGING, respond with a message I design, and then ring through only if someone punches in a digit? For example, my message might say “If you are a family member or a friend, or an authorized caller like police, EMS, a hospital etc then please press 3 for your call to ring through. If you are a salesperson please add this number to your ‘do not call list’.”

    It’s ridiculous to think that we should have to add numbers manually to a blacklist. The same jerks just keep calling back using a different number. The FCC spam caller list is great, and I would want that added.

    I am in emergency services and sometimes get calls from police and hospitals that are not on my contacts list, and WE WOULD ALL WANT A CALL FROM A HOSPITAL (or the police) SAYING THAT “Your wife (or son, or grandchild etc. has been injured and is at our facility”.

    I’m going crazy.

  3. 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.
