What is your favorite application to block certain numbers from calling you?
I just bought extreme call block, I haven't really played with it but so far I like it.
I've been using Extreme Call Block for a couple of months. It works great and the developer has been updating it quite frequently.
I just put them on the blacklist on my phone apk
aFirewall - My favorite feature is sending the caller to the Netherworld... Works like a charm...
Awesome I'll try Extreme Call Block!
OP why use an 'app' when you can do it natively:
Modified Phone.apk v29, vibrate, black list, eclair, N1, etc.(0513) - xda-developers
I tried that on my Droid and it went into a loop resulting in me having to do a system restore...
huh, sure you grabbed the right file? might be a ROM issue (I'm running an older BB not sure if it will work with the new one or a Stock ROM).
I'm not sure how that is doing it natively. You are installing an app too.
There is another alternative that is truly native. Create a contact, I call mine "ignore", and add any phone numbers you want to 'block' to that contact (I haven't found a limit yet if there is one). Then set that contact to 'send calls directly to voicemail' in the contact options menu.
I know it's not truly blocking calls but my phone never rings for those callers but I can still see when they called in the call log if I want to. I use Google Voice for VM so I can easily delete and not have to listen to any VMs they might leave.
Where do you choose "send calls directly to voicemail"? I can't find it anywhere when I'm creating a contact.
Google Voice (while not an app) is my method of dealing with unwanted callers. They can go straight to voicemail (with no VM notification and the VM automatically deleted, IIRC) or end up with a number not in service message.
