Can anyone recommend a good call blocking app?

So whats a good call blocking app? My past is catching up with me and I need to block some numbers. I know I can do it from my sprint account but I would rather just use an app that would give me a little bit more control and more options. I also use to have my number integrated with google voice which had decent options for call blocking but google voice can act like its possessed at times so thats not an option either. So any suggestions? I've seen quite a few apps on the play store but I don't feel like trying all of them.

Mr. Number by far is the best Call Blocking so far. Haven't found one that blocks numbers as good.

 

I may have to give that one a try, thanks for the suggestion.

I kinda like Extreme Call Blocker Droid. It's a little pricey (for an app) at $6, but the features are nice.

 

Mr. Number, it's free, but I don't like that it replaces your dialer and SMS apps.

I have never blocked calls so forgive my asking... is there a reason to use an another app over just blocking them in the people app on the phone, assuming you are still using the people app?

I haven't researched much as far as android apps go but back in my winmo days there was an app that would give you all sorts of crazy options. I can't remember the name of the app but it allowed you to send a call straight to voicemail, or simply answer and hang up so it doesn't go to voicemail. You could even set it up to automatically send specific text messages to specific numbers when they called. You could even block all numbers from a particular area code if you wanted too, all this also applied to sms as well and it all would take place behind the scene without you being disturbed. You wouldn't even know the app was running in the back ground if you didn't know it was there. You could, at any time, check the apps log to see any activity that took place.

I think I just found it, I was browsing over on xda and came across this thread:

The app is called call master and this thing is beast. Exactly what I am looking for.

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
