Many are rooting Android operating systems to save money. Others are more than happy to check out what’s available from the paid market if it could prove useful. Anyone in the latter category might be interested in checking out the Root Call Blocker Pro application that runs silently in the background and can block SMS, MMS and calls for any number that you never want to see coming your way in the future. Due to its uncanny root permission ability, it has the power to block numbers coming in that are private or unknown as well as the ones you know. That puts to firmly atop any call blocking application list you can install. The downside: the Root Call Blocker Pro app is available to purchase for $6.99. While that sounds steep for an app, it’s easily going to pay for itself if you are constantly being harassed via the phone. Think of all the time and stress it would save yourself and how much money you would be making with that spare time and new found ticker.
