Hi everybody,

I would like to have a blocklist for numbers which should not call/sms me. Or a whitelist feature which only allows numbers from my phonebook.

Blocking for sms could be also based on spamword detection as described here:

Highly needed, please... Still not in v2.1.1.x...

Is this similar question with this one:

Well, just to let you know, I've been working on a call blocker. It's currently available on OpenRepos, and I might also try to get it into Jolla Store once I feel confident enough about it.

It can block calls, but SMS blocking seems to be impossible unless Jolla does some changes to the commhistory daemon (see my project's Wiki page for an explanation)

This looks very good. Any idea when you will have this on the Jolla Store ?

Well, it's starting to take shape, I could probably try to upload it there soon, it's mostly just that I still don't have an icon.

Did you ever get any comment from Jolla on why this text message handling daemon is registering itself as an observer? Blocking spam text messages would be something good to have in place.

It doesn't work any longer. I received a call today from a blocked number.

@michan about call blocking, try phonehook

Black-list and white-list, both would be useful for calls but also for SMS! We could find these kinds of options (coming from "AntiSpam" a MIUI app):

<-----------Reload the page if you can't see the picture below-----------------> Call and SMS rules

This is of course just an example to illustrate the case.

Looks pretty cool.

Yes, it would be very nice to have a related auto-responder: if someone call to me and I am unavailable, just send a SMS or a chat text, or even an email if available. What do you think about it?

To support the development of native Jolla App that provides filtering of incoming phonecalls & SMS, a private SMS inbox, Automatic call log clearance and more, kindly contribute the indiegogo campaign :

Well, I visited the Indiegogo page and tried to visit your official website. It's dead. How do you expect to attract any donors? Or is your project also dead? Just curious because ScumStopper stopped working.

It would be nice to have one integrated antispam app or one in the store.
