    What are some good apps for blocking?

    I want to block some incoming calls, as well as block my own number when making certain outgoing calls. I want to do this without having to press *67 every time I dial. Please advise on the best apps. Have found good ones for blocking incoming calls/texts, but not my own number, outgoing. I am still open to hear any advice.

    I imagine that everyone assumes dialing *67 is so blatantly simple, that they wouldn't waste time writing code to make an app for it.

    Save *67 in front of the persons number. I do it for a co-workers personal work number and mess with him all the time. He still thinks some crazy person is calling him.
    There's always a chance, Doctor, as long as one can think.

    There has to be something out there. Verizon charges a fee to make your number show up as "Private" or "Blocked Caller" I don't want to do this to every number and I want to be able to do it without having to fully dial my contact's numbers. I guess this is a lot of wants, but there has to be something out there. People write more ridiculous code than this..... and still make money.

    GV is pointless if you don't give out the GV number (in the context of the OP). Its call handling features only work if people call you via your GV number.

    Keep in mind that calls blocked at the app level still count against your minutes.

    Google Voice is your best bet.
