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.

Works great, but... When I first started using this my phone was running kitkat and it worked flawlessly. But with the lollipop 5.0 update I have been experiencing some issues such as letting thru unknown callers, and not letting me answer calls that are not blocked. Not sure really if this is an issue with Privacy star or with lollipop itself. Hopefully there will be a fix for this before I make a decision on whether or not I will continue my sub with Privacy Star. *Update: OK I've made my decision, since it is letting unknown callers thru and not blocking spam numbers, I am uninstalling this and cancelling my sub. It's really too bad, this app worked really well before the 5.0 update, now it's just a waste of $$. To the people at PrivacyStar, too bad you guys are too lazy to keep a good app up to date.
