Title: Any good and free phone call filtering app for Android?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on July 07, 2017, 05:51:53 pm
Does anyone know if there is any good app for Android that is free and can either block or filter incoming calls from specific phone numbers other than existing spam list (for example, calls from specific people, not surveys nor spam calls)? My mobile carrier has such feature, but it costs $6 a month to use and I am not willing to pay any money just to block calls from specific numbers. Ideally I would also prefer shadowbanning than banning, though.

I have checked Google and found lists of such apps, but many of them look shady, now costs money or bombards you with ads everytime an incoming call arrives, so I want to make sure to not make my mobile experience worse.

I am 99% sure your phone should have the ability to block numbers.

I have android version 6.0 and kernal version 3.18.19.
Maybe it depends on the manufacturer? Whats your phone model?

Nexus 5. I think I got 6.x or something. I can't upgrade further since it's the final Android release for that phone.
