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.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
