Every one of us doesn’t want to get bothered from time to time during our lives so some of us prefer using an application which can block incoming calls from some of the people that we don’t want to have a conversation with. There are many applications designed for the iPhone which act as call blockers so that we won’t have to deal with those people. In this article we are going to provide five examples of iPhone apps to block numbers.
The first one to make it into our list is called Do Not Call and it gives you the possibility of registering with the U.S. government for blocking the unwanted calls and also for reporting violators straight from the application. This is a good application for stopping the incoming phone calls from those annoying telemarketers. All that you have to do is enter the phone number into this application and from there on you won’t be bothered by that person.
Speaking of telemarketers, have a look at the application called Call Block – Stop Telemarketers which already has no less than 6,000 numbers included in the database which you are able to select to block. The developers of this application are updating the database regularly so the list of numbers from telemarketers grows with every update of the app.
An interesting application designed for iOS is called Hide a Caller which gives you the possibility to hide numbers that you do not want to be seen on your smartphone. With this software you’re able to make aliases for the contacts stored on your iPhone that you want to keep a secret. This software is capable of generating an alias or a fake name for those contacts that you would like to keep as a secret. You’re able to receive text messages, e-mails and call straight from the application with the aliases linked to the contacts.
One of the most powerful iPhone apps to block numbers is called iBlacklist which gives the user the possibility of selecting from whom to receive calls and also the user can choose to hide messages. This application also comes with support for parental controls as the user is able to block outgoing calls. You are also able to set up an auto reply for SMS and also select from which contacts in the phonebook you want to receive calls from. Since the app is not available in the App Store, you’ll have to install Cydia on your iPhone.
We end with The Bad Decision Blocker which is different than the rest of the apps as this will block you from making calls. It was designed as a way to avoid distractions so that we focus better on studying, learning or other important activities. With this application you’re able to block the contacts in your smartphone so that you will not be able to call a certain person.
