In India There are lots of mobile network provider companies like Airtel Network, Vodafone, Aircel, Tata DoCoMo, Reliance, Idea, Telinor, JIO etc. whether you are using Vodafone, Airtel or any other SIM card, you might be getting daily Promotional phone calls and Promotional SMS from your mobile network providers which offer you different deals and offers for you SIM like different Recharge plans and offers, different monthly subscription services like Ringtones, songs, SMS, Jocks etc. Which are beneficial for us but most of time these promotional call are not useful for us, but the companies often harass us by calling us repeatedly.
We can also block spam calls and SMS through phone settings. But these calls do not come from a single number, the network company promotes its product or services by calling different numbers. So, if you think you can blacklist those promotional numbers your blacklist will be full. Call blocker apps for android is another way to block unwanted or unknown call & SMS but I have seen, when you block a number, the company calls from the another number That’s why this method is also not fully effective. Than what we will do to block unneeded or Spam calls & SMS.
