A simple calls blocker app for N900.

Blocking calls based on a simple whitelist.txt or blacklist.txt file in MyDocs folder, this app is auto-start upon boot, and auto-detect and reload if any changes made to to the list, allows range block by entering first partial block of phone number in list.

List format is one phone number per line without any other characters or spaces (just digits with no spaces in between or in front).

To block unknown callers just enter unknown without quotes.

To switch to whitelist mode which allows blocking all callers except those listed in whitelist.txt, use command "/etc/init.d/callerx loadwhitelist",

Usage commands:

"/etc/init.d/callerx loadwhitelist"
"/etc/init.d/callerx loadblacklist"
"/etc/init.d/callerx start"
"/etc/init.d/callerx stop".

This a daemon app running in background and currently there is no user interface, to keep it small and simple. It will auto-start after installed, and default to blacklist block mode, a new file name blacklist.txt will be also created in MyDocs folder where you can start enter the phone number you want to block. If you want to switch to whitelist mode, just create a new whitelist.txt file in MyDocs folder and run comand "/etc/init.d/callerx loadwhitelist" in xterm. The configuration file is located /home/user/.config/callerx folder, you can change the default whitelist.txt or blacklist.txt location to different folder by edit the config file if you want.

Nice program, the first call-blocker I have ever used that does not let the blocked person know they're being blocked (pretty fast), except it's missing notification, there is no way to know that the person has called. [Rate: 7/10]

it's a good app but unfortunately you have to type all digits and you can't bring it from your contacts or sure from your recent calls [Rate: 7/10]
