Best Call Blocking Apps For Your Cellphone

If you are being harrassed by telemarketers, insurance brokers, creeps selling extended warranties for you car, or a creepy ex-boyfyfirnd (or ex girlfriend), then this information will help you end the calls. Caller ID and Call blocking apps are available for cell phones, and most are free, and work effectively.

Most phones do have an auto-reject list built in, (see this page), but these apps go way beyond that, by providing detailed information about the caller, such as their location and whether they have been reported as spam or scams.

Here are the best ones, that we have reviewed:
