A new app, named Metro Block It, has been launched in the Android Market that users can employ to block unwanted calls and SMSes. With Metro Block It, you can block calls and messages from anonymous and some particular numbers.
In India, mobile phone users have the option to register themselves in the Do Not Call Registry if they do not want to receive calls from telemarketers. However, calls and SMSes from telemarketers have not been stopped completely. Also, if you have not registered, you can use this app that gives an effective solution to this problem.
The Metro Block It has been developed by PrivacyStar, which makes apps for Android and BlackBerry smartphones, in association with MetroPCS, an American mobile phone service provider.
“We understand our customers’ needs and, with mobile devices being the primary phone and Internet device for many of our customers, recognize the need to provide them with a service that allows for uninterrupted use and control over their primary lifeline to the world,” said Tom Keys, president and chief operating officer of MetroPCS.
“We’re excited about working with PrivacyStar to meet the needs of our users and continue providing voice, text and data services, along with great features like Metro Block-it, at an incredible value,” added Keys.
The app is available for free for all users with Android 1.5 and above devices. To download the app, click here.
