    Has anyone used an app called "Should I Answer" ? Is there a favorite call blocker out there?
    Thanks in advance

    The default dialer in 7.0+ has a built-in call blocker.

    From the call history Tap on a number and select 'Block/report spam'

    Or you can go into settings > call blocking to manually add a number or remove numbers.

    This will block texts as well as calls.

    I guess I have to wait for 7.0. Dtek50 doesn't have it yet.

    I read all the comments. Sounds interesting, but I don't see the Pro version listed. It looks like I have to install the trial to find out the price?

    Sorry about that. I don't see the price there. Try it you might like/love it. Otherwise, the developer (who is well known even here) can be contacted at Email info@toysoft.ca

    I downloaded the trial version. Do you know how to copy a phone number from the phone app to power tools? I could do it on BB10 but don't know how on android

    Can you block 'private numbers' in general?

    Thanks for all your advice. Just bought the Power Tools app.
    The "Should I Answer" app I tried was too intrusive. It wanted me to evaluate every call I blocked and share it with the community. I could opt out, but it was time consuming. It also blocked half my screen every time a call came in that wasn't in my contacts.
    Power tools is simpler.
