"Works, but simple."

July 16, 2012  |  By ReviewedThis

 |  Version: Call Blocker 1.1

Pros

Can assign wild card or direct numbers to be blocked. Small memory requirement. Block all calls from a start to stop time on selected days of the week. Allow for exceptions.

Cons

No outgoing message options like other applications. No modem setup assistance included.

Summary

At 368K it is a very small program - so don't expect a lot. The interface is a little confusing but the functionality is there. I was looking for something that would block unwanted sales calls since we are on the Do Not Call list and still get calls. It does block calls. It still takes 2 rings to read the Caller ID info before hanging up on them. Sweet! Note: Not all aspects were tested - only the 'block this number' feature.

"The product doesn't work!"

June 08, 2012  |  By sjncousin

 |  Version: Call Blocker 1.1

Pros

Easy download--that is it.

Cons

After installation, the program opened and I added the numbers I wanted blocked. Now the program will not open and the calls are NOT being blocked.

Summary

Why even put the product on the market if it does not work??? Don't waste your time with this until (if ever) the company fixes the problems.

"Buggy program."

December 19, 2010

 |  Version: Call Blocker 1.1

Pros

Free. Some parts of program actually work. Retrieves call info from modem OK. Ability to block all calls based on day of the week and time of day is unique feature.

Cons

Poor program performance, doesn't actually block calls. Caller name, number, and action not listed in log. No user help info. Program is buggy, inadequately tested. Caused my Windows XP to hang and refuse to shut down.

Summary

See section Cons above. Program has some potential but needs a lot of work. Don't download!

"callblocker (free)"

November 02, 2010  |  By dazmsatex

 |  Version: Call Blocker 1.1

Pros

Pretty close to nothing.

Cons

It lets you add numbers only one at a time. Seems to block all calls not just the ones in the block list. Has a feature to block by time but doesn't tell you what the time intervals apply to - all calls or just the block list.

Summary

Has a space for name and another space for number in the call log screen but the number shows in the name field when called by a land line and no name or number appears when called from a cell phone. That renders the log feature unnecessary. All things considered, it seems to be a very amateurish effort.
