User reviews of Block Calls & Caller ID
I like the app, but if I receive a blocked call while in the middle if another call, it cuts my call off. It works by actually answering the call for a split second and then hanging up on them I guess. It's not actually blocking the call from going through. Would be 5 stars if it wouldn't disconnect my current call.

Disappointed in Oregon:/ I had an HTC 1 SV and this app blocked calls and texts when I assigned a # to it. I got a Motorola and now it only blocks the calls of assigned numbers not the texts and I have it set to block both on app. I also wish you wouldn't send calls to VM and give a notification for it. Cant you fix it to just hang up and no notification? Used to be the best blocker app out there:(

Ho hum Sure, it has blocked a few "known spammers" that it knows. And it allows me to "block" numbers. But my phone already does that. What i wanted was the file complaint feature. According to federal law, telemarketers are not allowed to call cell phones. Why is any app neccesary? Every violation is punishable by a fine, paid to the victim: me. I haven't seen a dime from any of the complaints i have filed with this app. Oh, and those blocked calls? They just leave their recorded messages on my voice mail.
