Block unwanted callers with Mr Number

Cold-callers get on my pip. We’ve all had them. You sign up for something, fill in a form or add your mobile number to an email only to receive dozens of “Withheld numbers”. It’s annoying. Luckily there’s an app called Mr Number which blocks unwanted calls and texts. It’s completely free and I started using it after a tip from Anthony McLean and I love it.

It’ll block withheld (private) numbers or any other number you want. You can choose to either send calls to voicemail or pick up and then hang up the call. You can also position where you want alerts to show and whether it should notify you that a call has been blocked.

Free, simple, quick. A great app. It’s available for BlackBerry, iPhone and Android.

    This all well and good expect it overlooks the fact that there are a lot of people who choose to have their caller ID witheld on their landline automatically.

    Erroneous info above! Not supported on anything other than android phones, according to their own website.

    The blocking feature on this app only works for andriod not apple. Apple does not let you block numbers. I do know for a fee AT&T well block numbers
