    Call blocker?

    I am in a need of a call blocker that works on a system level. What I mean by that is that I need it to block calls without me noticing that there was a call attempt. This also goes for messages. I had a program like that on my jailbroken iphone called iBlacklist. I wouldn't mind rooting and unlocking if that is needed for a program of this description to work. If you happen to know of anything that would solve my problem I would be eternally grateful. :-)

    I use Root Call Blocker, you can also block callers via Google Voice which of course cost nothing

    Google Voice requires you to go in and manually block each number or contact, I've made contacts such as Unwanted Spam and so on I add each number I don't want to receive calls from and then block them.

    TouchPal Dialer has a "Block" caller option that does what you want. if you press on the contact at the bottom of the dialog is the Block feature, you can Blacklist the number or send it straight to voicemail

    Just be careful. I tried a few of these last week and many had "AirPush" in them and I got slammed with advertising notifications every few minutes. Had to use AirPush Detector to figure out where it was coming from and removed the app. Can't remember the couple I tried right now though.

    Thnx dude that one works the way I wanted. The extreme call blocker allows the phone to ring a few times before rejecting the call.

    Been using extreme call blocker for a long time. No ad push, and works perfect.

    To answer my own question. I have rooted and purchased root blocker and I can't fault it. It works exactly as it should. I hope this helps all those who are facing the same dilemma I was.

    NQ Mobile Manager seems to work well - blocks calls and SMS' from the blacklist - premium version lets you have a private space so you can hide all thos "iffy" text messages and call logs
