Mr. Number Call Block is a free call blocking app that has recently been updated to include the ability to block text messages. Considering the app is free, it offers users a lot of value with features such as:
Choose how to handle blocked calls (send to voicemail or hang up)
Automatically block tens of thousands of known telemarketers – list updated daily
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
With all the customizations for blocking certain calls, it makes it easy to only receive calls that are important to you. I currently use this app and like it! Try this free app and see if you don’t agree.
I believe this app gives the user an option of direct block versus voice mail. I've been using it for a while now, but I will need to get the update - I've been getting a lot of spam text lately and I rarely give out my cell number.
