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.
