    "As I go throughout my day, I don't want to have to deal with SPAM or messages from people I don't want to receive messages from. SMS Blocker takes this stress away from me by blocking, not only SPAM, but any name, title, reference words that I program into the system. This app allows me to know that when I open my messages, I will be receiving messages I want to receive, from people I want to receive messages from. Definitely a less stressful way to open my messages and be more efficient in my day."

    "Truecaller seems to be a popular solution for blocking unwanted calls, and it seems to also perform mostly well in terms of blocking spam messages and unwanted messages as well. It sometimes has technical problems, or free versions of it sometimes seemingly prompt you to upgrade it, but the app has fairly good customer service. There are probably a lot of available options for apps of this kind, and it seems like this often-used alternative is one of the better ones, unless your needs are very specific."

    "This is a must have for anyone with a phone. I'm so sick of getting calls from unknown and harrassing numbers, and this is the perfect solution. It prevents not only calls but also texts from coming through from unknown numbers. So no longer will I get these stupid calls from telemarketers hounding me at all hours of the day. I swear they were literally calling in the middle of the night! Or maybe that was my ex? Either way, it blocks them!"
