I want to put someone on a blacklist so I can't see when he calls me or what messages he sends to me. This is the easy part.

But I also want some custom text messages to be automatically sent to him if he tries to call/text me, like "Leimi put you on his blacklist, you really should stop trying". This is the not so easy part?

Do you know if this is possible by default in recent Android versions, via an application or even a custom ROM? Thanks.

There are a several apps on the Market that claims to be able to do this Auto Reply for blocked numbers, what have you tried? – Lie Ryan Sep 26 '12 at 10:03
At the time where I just wanted to block unknown numbers I tried several apps (don't really remember what) but only one worked well: Call Filter. Didn't remember seeing apps with an auto reply feature. Now that you're mentionning it, I indeed see a couple of apps that seem to do exactly what I want T_T Don't know how I missed them, thanks. I guess I'll test and come back here with the one I choose. – Leimi Sep 26 '12 at 10:17
I was going to suggest using Google Voice, but I see you're in France. The problem with your proposed solution is that by sending a custom message like that all you're doing is confirming that your number still works. All your tormentor need do is find a different number from which to call you and your block will be for naught. – Al E. Sep 26 '12 at 12:40
Yeah I'm in France :) In this particular case I actually don't mind if the blocked person knows my number still works. The purpose is actually to warn the person that it's useless to keep trying contacting me on my phone. – Leimi Sep 27 '12 at 8:26
Well... Tested "Blacklist", "Ultimate Call Blocker Free", "Call Blocker 2.0", "Easy Filter"... none actually worked. – Leimi Sep 28 '12 at 7:27

I know this is a really old post but if you have root access try Root Call Blocker

It does have an auto reply sms feature built in, i use it reguarly.

or if you dont have root access try

Advanced call blocker

This also has a auto reply sms feature

If you are rooted, use Call Master. This is the best blocker app in the Play Store. But, the learning curve is slightly higher than that of average apps.

Try Dead2Me Call & Text blocker. The only thing is that there is no blocked log. You won't know if or when you had blocked calls or texts.


Kit Kat is still not supported.

Many users are reporting failures in Answer and Hangup Mode with HTC Handsets. It is very likely that Dead2Me will not work in Answer and Hangup Mode (unless you have a wired headset plugged into your phone at all times - and who on Earth has that).

The No Answer mode will work fine, but will allow callers to leave voicemails. The Text message blocking will work fine as long as you are using the stock Android text messaging app.
