SMS blocker is finally working on my evo running froyo.

Couple suggestions:

1. Long pressing a blocked text and selecting call causes my phone to lag and eventually the dialer force closes. The call is never made.

2. I dont know if this is the current behavior because of the above FC but when calling out from rcb can we make sure it doesn't display in the call log?

3. Can the sms blocking be expanded to basically be a private inbox where the messages are threaded and we can privately replay. See the easy filter app for a good example of this.

4. I dont know if mms are blocked but if they are can they be captured in this private inbox as well?

Awesome progress btw, the only app i missed from windows mobile was magicall and this is becoming an excellent replacement

At the moment root call blocker is a call blocker, not a private messaging app. I have considered releasing these kind s of features as plugins after the beta ends.

Hi mate, please send us some logs using the "Write to developer" item in the Settings menu. Without logs, the can be no help...

Also, i cant replicate your error because i dont have a galaxy s 2.

In any case, you should not have both versions of the blocker installed. Uninstall one, then use the other.

Just send. LBE privacy guard is not a call blocker, it's application permission manager. I already notice that developers as well and hopes to comes up with a solution.

I can not send/receive SMS with this app installed/enabled. I've tried stock SMS app, Go SMS Pro and Handscent and none will send nor receive SMS. I've got the app setup in blacklist mode w/ only 1 number being blocked. I even took that number out so there are literally no numbers being blocked and it doesn't fix anything. I use Titanium Pro to "freeze" the app and reboot the phone and all is well again.

thank you for your great work specially the don't answer function , I have some suggestion:

1- Adding "Contact Group" Block method would be great

2- If the application can support rules priority that would also be awesome.
:rolleyes:
3-as mentioned above adding some private sms solution would also be great

:rolleyes:

Thanks for the suggestions, they will probably be worked in after the beta ends in a few weeks.

I've just uninstalled and reinstalled from market and it seems okay now with the very latest version. Thanks

Very inconsistent with Samsung Galaxy-S Series phone. (Epic, on Sprint)
On one call, alt-rej hangs up after one ring, and calling phone disconnects.
On next call, with same handsets, alt-rej hangs up after one ring, but leaves calling phone connected. On third call, its anybodys guess?

All reject methods either send to voice mail, even "don't answer", or otherwise do not properly hang up on the calling phone. The other handset is silent, but seconds are still ticking off on it, as if it is still connected to network. No problem to receiving phone, in that there is no ring... but from one call to the next, with identical settings and handsets testing, sometimes behavior changes or reject method is ineffective.

If you need some help with this Samsung Epic, let me know.

These troubles are caused by your network. The replies available to android are limited and well-defined. What the network (if you have google voice or any other routing for example) does is nothing to do with the app.

Bug and feature request

First, when modifying items in the blacklist, after long pressing one and getting the popup to change the blocking type (ie, default, dont block, etc), when I select one of the choices, it gets applied to the last item in the blacklist, not the one I had long pressed on.

Second, I know this app is for blocking, but would you ever consider adding the ability to override the devices current sound profile as well? For example, if I have my device set to silent and a number I have defined calls, I want my device to ring. The only reason I'm asking is that this seems to kinda go hand in hand with what you are already doing. Other than that though, I really like the interface design of this and will be purchasing the donated version.

Thanks for the heads up. But please use the "Write to developer" item in the Settings menu - dont forget to describe the problem just as you did right now...

I dont understand - you want it to ring but block?

    Piss off.

    And everyone else: if you have a problem, replicate it and send logs through the app. larryatapproved has the right idea.

    I did what larryatapproved did twice in the last 2 weeks and still haven't gotten back to. To be perfectly honest if your app was a dollar I could understand (a little) your attitude. But it wasn't a dollar it was around 6 (I believe). With a higher priced app like yours I would have expected a better sense of customer service. I have been polite and inquisitive in all of my inquiries to you. And in return have not been given the same level of respect.

    I have downloaded free apps that resulted in outstanding customer service. Sendit being one of them from xda. If I were to make an app that costs 6 bucks. And had people working for me (like you say you do). I would bend over backwards to help a customer in a very calm and professional manor. Constructive criticism from buyers is not a bad thing , but rather a form of respect. They want to see the app work. Which is why they are asking you questions. If you weren't willing to accept that, you should have do one of two things. Either.
    A) make your app free. The you wouldn't feel obligated to respond.
    B) write in your app description that every problem is user error. Cause nothing could possibly be wrong on your end.

    Hell, Google makes apps. They get negative reviews. Do you see them snapping at people? And there's are free. Not everything is formulated to work on the vast majority of android phones. But take pride in your work and look into the problems. They're are two sides to a developer. Obviously one is the developmental side. And the other is people skills. Don't you realize that we are your testers? You have 3 s3's you said right? We're the ones with HTC, Motorola, LG, Samsung, and all the sub variants of them.

    A little nicer approach instead of "piss off" would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: [APP 2.1+] Root Call Blocker - the fastest call blocker on Android

    Here is what happened..

    1. Read thread title and OP
    2. Liked the app, downloaded free version
    3. While app is being installed, read last few pages of the thread
    4. Un-installed app without running it even once

    What a pathetic response from the developer, been looking around for a call blocking app but certainly won't be using this one with attitudes like that

    Hello random troll guy in my ignore list. We have 2 s3 handsets running the latest available european stock jb and everything works fine.

    I'm not the only JB user experiencing signal loss (if you actually read the Play Store reviews, which you obviously don't). Most of the complaints seem to be coming from Motorola Droid Razr users (Maxx and M). Whenever you decide to stop ignoring Motorola users, let us know. An S3 is not a Motorola phone... in case you were confused.

    I'm adding Google Play review screenshots below that support my claims of loss of radio signal when running Root Call Blocker due to the rude nature of the developer claiming somehow that by inquiring about a possible fix for my faulty app I am "trolling". I'm simply hoping for a fix. Again, great app when it's working, and absolutely terrible customer service. These are just the first few pages of reviews which support my claims that many users are experiencing the same issue. Loss of radio signal.

    The problem is real. If you don't care to fix your app, just say you don't care. If you do care, stop playing make believe.
