How to Filter and Block Incoming Calls, Texts on Android Phone

Are you getting unwanted calls from a creepy stalker or is a brokerage house after you to buy stocks via them? May be you are frustrated with constantly deleting the spam texts that you seem to get in dozens each day. A call manager is what you need to get rid of all these problems.

If you own an Android smartphone, NetQin is an application that can potentially do the required task smoothly. It’s an amazing Android app that blocks unwanted incoming calls, texts and even protects your privacy at the same time.

Net Qin

Download and install NetQin Mobile Manager from the Android Market. Once the application is installed successfully fire it up. Soon as you launch the program, you will see the dashboard from where you can manage all your calls and text messages.

Netqin Dashboard

The program has six modules: Blocked SMS, Blocked Calls Blacklist, Backup, Privacy Eraser and Private Space. I will talk about all these modules one by one so that you have a clear understanding of the application and all its possibilities.


Once you click on this module you will be taken to the blacklist and whitelist control section. In this section you can add all the numbers you want to blacklist (the one you want to block). You can add the numbers manually or from contacts, calls and SMS logs.


If you want to attend only few specific numbers and ignore the rest, add the particular numbers in the Whitelist section. We can toggle the blocking rules from the Settings menu.

Once you are on the Mobile Manager Dashboard  press the menu button and click on Settings. The settings are divided into two parts, Call Blocking and SMS blocking. Here, you can configure all the blocking rules of Calls and SMS like block blacklists, allow only whitelist, block or accept all, etc.

You can also configure an auto SMS responder with a personal message to the caller to let him know you are busy at that moment.

Basically, that covers the blacklisting feature of the app but there’s much more to the app than simply the feature of rejecting the blacklisted numbers.


Backup Restore

The backup module lets you back up your contacts to the NetQin server so that you never loose your contacts even if, God forbid, you loose your phone. Just signup with the service and start the backup.

Privacy Eraser

With this module, you can quickly erase the call history and text messages permanently to safeguard your private data when you sense a situation that could lead to revelation of that data.

Call and SMS Blacklist

This module simply shows the calls and messages that have been rejected by the system.

Private Space

This module is exclusively for the premium version, and thus I don’t know much about it but here’s what the product description says:

Automatically move private contacts’ messages and call logs to a Private Space so that they don’t appear in the phone’s regular SMS and call logs.

Keep secrets by hiding the icon as displayed on the main screen, so that nobody knows you are using Private Space.

Protect your REAL space by creating one or more fake spaces. If anyone wants your password, show her/him the fake one!

My Verdict

NetQin Mobile Manager is an amazing application to manage incoming calls and texts. The power to backup and restore on the clouds is an added advantage with comes at no cost at all. Give it a go and let us know how it works out for you.
