    Default A good number blocking app for android

    Hi folks does anyone know of a good app that can block calls or numbers like what is available on most phones except the nexus phones? I need one all the crazy telemarketing numbers that i blocked when using my One M8 and iPhone 5s are now coming through on my nexus phone since they are no longer blocked.

    I use one called Call Blocker by embware. It has many options which I ignore. I just use the blacklist. So far, it's worked for me.

    One other option is to create a google contact called Telemarketer (or any other name that you can recognize), and set the ringtone for that contact to "silent" and/or select the option to "send all calls to voicemail".
    Now, whenever you get a telemarketing call, just add that phone# to this existing contact. The best thing is that this contact list is now on your google contacts, so when you switch phones, the list stays with you and you do not need to build it again.

    I have used Current Caller ID for 2 years. Blocking a number is easy with this app.

    This has worked well for me so far.

    Not flashy, but it doesn't need to be. Calls are blocked before I even see them. Only way I even know it is working is to look at it's log, because I don't get the blocked numbers anymore.
