Even though Mr Number (free) has a hang up option on my version of Android, I prefer the send to VM option, in case it tries to block a call I actually want to take. My experience is the spam callers aren't leaving a message anyhow.

I'll probably end up keeping the Extreme Call Blocker app. Just in case Rachel From Card Services calls and leaves repeated voice mails on my phone .

On second or third thought, I decided that I really don't need the Extreme Call Blocker app with all the bells and whistles and any blocking I do will just have to go to voice mail. The deciding factor is my mobile isn't on all the time, thus, even with Extreme Call Blocker, if a callers on my block list calls, they most likely will still go to my voice mail. Probably should have thought this out a bit more .

Ask and You Shall Recieve

A follow up to my search for a good Call Blocker for my anroid phone.

After I got a spam voicemail yesterday, I found myself back to looking for a good call blocker.

Found out the makers of the Extreme Call Blocker now has scaled down apps which does block Android calls from going to voice mail which is exactly what I want.

I got the app called "Call Blocker No Spam Voicemail" (the author emailed me saying this is the version for android 5.0 and 6.0 phones). Well worth the $1 . In order to effectively block voice mails, I do need to leave the phone on (sleep is okay). An acceptable trade off to not have to go through the hangups and Rachel voice mails.

I now have the blocker to block anything that is not on my contact list. Knowing me, I'll probably forget to turn off the blocker a few times for some calls that aren't ongoing a few times until I form the habit of remembering to toggle on/off when needed .

A feature that I really would like would be the ability for the phone to ring only for certain numbers I have designated as important with all other incoming calls set to ring silently. Not having unwanted calls ring and disturb me is almost as important as blocking them in the first place.

Actually, now that I think about it, perhaps I can do this now simply by creating a silent ring tone as the default and then assign an audible ring tone for the contacts that I want to hear from.
