    Looking for an app either free or paid that will just result in the caller hearing nothing or a dead tone....leaving them to presume your line is no longer active.

    Happy to have this facility extended to anyone not on my contact list.

    Any recommendations?

    If you have a Samsung phone, you can set this up in Blocking Mode in Settings. Not sure what callers hear, though.

    Yes I saw that option and am thinking of jumping ship for a Note 3, would be interesting to hear what a caller who is blocked hears when they call a Samsung device? hopefully not "You've been blocked!"....lol!

    Mr.Number in the play store it's free and you have a choice to either hang up on someone or let it go straight to voicemail.

    I use the default blocking setting on my S4 and it works fine. I can even see when said blocked caller has tried to call me.

    Its great that the function works, I really like the idea...but have you tried blocking a number then calling yourself?....what does the caller who is blocked hear?

    Is there an app like Do Not Disturb of iOS and Blocking Mode from the Samsung phones?

    I love it on my SGS3 but want it on other phones for when I change.

    Any app that can do this? Block all calls except favorites?

    There are apps that mimic that feature...not sure off the top of my head though. Another phone that has a great built in "Do not Disturb" is the moto x. It is identical to the IOS version.

    CallFilter. I have been using it for over a year and it has worked perfectly.

    TouchPal has a blacklist feature that blocks calls.
