In earlier versions of android there was a way to maintain a blacklist of phone numbers to reject. But I can't find this in android 4.4.2. Did they remove it?

No, there's no native feature like that..

However, you can try this out : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...number.blocker
Not sure whether it works or not..

Are you on stock or custom rom?

If your on a custom rom then there is a blacklist setting under the phone dialer and under security. You can block calls/texts and unknown numbers. It's a very nice feature

I remember that, it must have been the ASOP dialer because it is not in the new Google Dialer. I ran Carbon on my Nexus 4 and remember that feature so I would say it is a feature of ASOP dialer.

Yes it used to be there and I recall a YouTube that showed how to use it. I'm on stock 4.4.2 and it's no longer there.

I'm afraid all the phone blocking apps probably just steal your contacts......

Too bad.

Not on my Nexus 5, stock rom. Maybe you have a custom rom.

I've used root call blocker from play store. Works great. Free version is a bit limiting tho. But still good. And stable. For me anyway.

OK, then if you're rooted you can use xposed with call blocker, you can find it on xda portal or in xposed download section

Good idea. I didn't know xposed had a module to block calls.
