I get several times call from a "call center". They use automated dialing here to get people to call back the missed call number. But its only telemarketing. Would be nice to be able to completely ignor ther number range. Or also to e.g. ignore calls from unknown caller ids or anonymous.

Works but needs to be on screen as running app otherwise its not taking care of the calls. Still think it should be a feature integrated and not as an app.

@__A__ The wiki says there is a daemon mode. A bit tedious but at least it's possible.

"Therefore, if you want ScumStopper to start on boot, and not need to have an app window open, you must currently enable developer mode and follow these instructions."

Is there a way of using wildcards with ScumStopper? Recently I've got a lot of calls from Greece and would like to block out whole country code.

ScumStopper seems to work ok with SFOS but need to add each number separately to blacklist after first call. I'm running the app in background.

@Juska You should ask at OpenRepos or start a discussion at ScumStopper forum.
