SWEET! I know quite a few people who were waiting for a free yet functional call blocking application. As of today we finally have one courtesy of the team that brought us Mr. Number and its crowdsourced caller ID app. The new app is called Mr. Number Call Block and it simply acts as a slick call blocking application.
You can use it to block anything from a single phone number to a contact, private numbers, a whole area code, or even every call. You can also whitelist people who would get through the block so even if you block a certain area code you can open it up to select numbers.
The app also uses the cool feature found in the Mr. Number Caller ID app to block telemarketers. It recognizes spam calls based on patterns to block spam callers automagically. You get a notification in your inbox when it blocks a call but you can turn that off and just see the blocked calls through the app. Currently all the calls are forwarded to voicemail but in the future they plan on also allowing you to pick up and hang up on callers so they don’t even get your voicemail.
- Automatically block tens of thousands of known telemarketers – list
- Block individual phone numbers, a contact, an entire area code, or the world
- Block private and restricted numbers
- Customizable whitelist: make sure the right people always get through
- History of every call blocked and why
- Notifications of blocked calls in your inbox (optional)
- Big easy on/off button in case you change your mind
