    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 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.

    He clearly states he wants to make calls that don't show up as his number. GV obviously fills that role. But thanks for playing.

    The blacklist feature is good for blocking incoming callers.

    No need to be a smarta_ss.

    I don't know of any app that will block a number on an outgoing, and obviously you don't as well, therefor I only mentioned the best alternative that I know of. If the OP is not wanting bothered by incoming calls from people that he calls, then GV will give you the option of rejecting the call, plus with "Mr. Number" he can block the number that way as well.
    Seeing as you had no HELPFUL input for the OP, you post was pointless other than to showing your intellectual intelligence. As for "playing", seem you are the troll trying to "play" in this thread. As for me, I'm done with "playing" YOUR game.
