    I use to have this feature on my pre to block unwanted phone numbers from preware of course... I was wondering if there was an app for the evo that will let me do this.

    Thee's an app called Extreme Call Blocker that's not free, but supposed to be great. On the iPhone I used an app called Blacklist which worked very well but I don't see an Android port.

    Get yourself a Google Voice account

    I think callfilter is great, but it runs into the same problem I've seen for all the call blocking apps for Android. They hang up on an existing call when a blocked number calls you. Anyone know how to get around that, or do any of the apps have that feature? I haven't purchased the paid ones yet, but I've seen in the comments that people complained about it. I had iBlacklist for the iPhone as well and it was flawless in performance.

    FWIW, I found this post on Androidforums with a potential workaround. It takes a few more steps than iBlacklist ever did, but I'm going to give it a try.

    Here's my personal workaround to this issue:

    1. Save the person's number and set it up so that it goes straight to voicemail (under 'options' for the number)

    2. Download YouMail, install, and set up voicemail forwarding (free and fantastic, for many reasons OTHER than this)

    3. Under your contacts in YouMail, you can set it up so that certain contacts CANNOT leave voicemail.

    3a. As an additionally fun thing, they CAN still hear a message, so I set it up to be a "Verizon Number Disconnected" message. Wondrous.

    GBlocker is the only call filter on Android I've come across that will (a) pick up and hang up, and (b) block all numbers that begin with a defined digit string (e.g. a prefix). You can also set text autoresponders to incoming calls from assigned numbers. It's the closest equivalent to Magicall and CallFilter on Windows Mobile and Palm OS (the Android app named CallFilter only let's you block whole numbers, as far as I could tell).

    Yeah callfilter blocks whole numbers as far as I know but it will pick up and hang up or send to vm.

    Edit:
    Just checked and it will block prefixes.

    I just downloaded MR NUMBER from the android market for free and it seems to work fine. You can type in the number you want blocked and your phone still shows it in your notifications as a blocked call. My HTC Inspire 4G still lit up when the call came in but no sound or vibration. So far my other calls have come through so I like it so far.

    Extreme Call Blocker (Has a little Blue Shield for an icon) works fantastic rooted or stock. I use it. 800, 866, 886, 888, private, unknown, or anyone on my blacklist (pesky telemarketers) don't even get my voicemail, and I don't even get a ring or vibrate....It just hangs up on them. You can make it only answer numbers in your phone also. The best part is not a single ring or vibrate for blocked numbers. You can send them to voicemail, or simply have the phone disconnect. I can't say enough about that app. It's one of a handful I've actually bought.

    Extreme Call Blocker does the string also...There ARE only a couple who do that feature though.
