    " this has been a great tool to catch calls before I answer and to then have them flagged so they don't even ring to my phone anymore. I also appreciate the previously flagged calls by other users. I have flagged my fair share of calls so far too. Great little community!"

    "Finally I can block calls from anyone without getting my service provider involved. I had been getting a telemarketer calling almost daily, not any more. I find this ]to be the best spam blocker too."

    "This app gave me a ton more control then just the basic phone functions. I really felt safe and more secure while using it as I block off numbers that I don't know."

DID YOU KNOW?

The technology for caller IDs was invented by Theodore George Paraskevakos, a Greek communications engineer, in 1968. It consisted of transmitting the caller’s number in the form of electronic data over telephone lines and into the receiver’s device. It wasn’t until 1971 when Paraskevakos constructed the first caller ID devices – a transmitter and a receiver that was used in Huntsville, Alabama for the Boeing company. However, it was Kazuo Hashimoto who invented the first device that displayed caller ID information. Hashimoto is also credited as the inventor of the answering machine.

Caller IDs have gone a long way for users to avoid answering nuisance calls. Nuisance calls run the whole gamut from unwanted calls, prank calls, silent calls, and sales calls. The ability to screen calls by checking the caller ID before deciding to answer the call is called “selective call rejection.” However, callers still have a lot of means to harass people over the telephone. The can turn off the caller ID or spoof it, they can use payphones and burner phones, and they can make calls untraceable. This is why call blocker programs have become more effective in preventing unwanted phone calls. With call blockers, a blocked caller’s call won’t come through at all -- it won’t cause the phone to ring.

    "I don’t know how they were able to get my number. However, a lot of telemarketers have been calling my phone like crazy. I needed to find a great call blocker application for my Android phone in order to stop all these calls. The best app I found on the app store to do this was Blacklist Plus which is able to block a huge number of incoming calls. "

    "Have you ever been harassed by ex-boyfriends who won't stop leaving you messages? Relentlessly bombarded by private or unknown numbers? When I installed Calls Blacklist that was the end of unwanted calls from unwanted people. It even blocks unwanted SMS texts. I wish it had been developed sooner."

    "This is great because it has a setting where I can block all unknown calls instead of having to take time to allow each contact on my phone. It then gives me a notice of blocked calls along with the unknown number. That saves me a lot of headaches with wrong numbers and telemarketers. The only issue is that it will silence a known number every so often."

    "It is kind of expensive for an app in my view, but I looked at some of the features and the ability to mute the ringtone on my side only makes it worth the money. I'm not sure I like that you can *only* use this; it will not work in conjunction with any other type of call blockers on your phone. This could be a feature request though. I also love you can block and not allow them to leave a voicemail. "
