Default Looking Android App Call Blocker



Advertise Here

I'm looking for an Android app to block calls (robo calls, sales, etc).

Looking online all of the free available apps want access to everything on your phone. Emails, phone list, photos, calls made, calls received, sacrifice your first born and confiscate all your life savings.

Is there a free android app that doesn't require anything ? Just install it .. it blocks calls added to the list .. and it doesn't want anything from you ?

Thanks.

Thanks. It appears they are no longer in business and the app is unavailable.

I've been using Sanity since 2011. However, it an open source and not from Google, so it may not suitable for your need.

I've tried several and they all suck.
Don't truly block the call just have a warning it is a possible "scam" number.

I use "ShouldIanswer".

Love it.

It really blocks the calls. Can be customized as to what it blocks. You can set it to block the calls without ringing.
You must do your part as well as it uses the feedback from all users to determine the nuisance calls to block.

Looks like they have a new version. I am still using the old one. Maybe I will try the new one. The reviews look good on it as well. And it seems to have a feature I have been wanting. (blocking numbers with the same first 6 digits as a spoofer that keeps changing the last couple digits to circumvent the blocks..)

I read some more reviews. I will stick with the old version. Looks like the new version has some quirks.

Have been using "Should I Answer" for two days. The nonsense phone calls have dropped off 99% !

This is an app I can support.

Im using "Calls Blacklist" call blocker by Vlad Lee

I have it set to block all calls that are not in my phone book, unknown and blocked phone numbers.
Works great! also If a person calls and leaves a message the message comes threw but not the call.
