Quick Tip - CyanogenMod 10.2 Blacklist [ROM Feature]

Do you get a lot of spam calls on your Android device? Is there someone or someplace you no longer want to receive calls from? Then the Blacklist feature in CyanogenMod 10.2 is for you.

In this latest ROM iteration, users can have their CyanogenMod based Android device automatically block incoming calls and text messages. Calls go directly to voicemail so you can review the message in case you want to review it. There are options as well for blocked and unknown numbers in case that a problem as well. One of the most interesting features though is the ability to create wildcard entries in case you want to block numbers from a particular area code or there is a particular subset of numbers that you want to block. Check out the screenshots below to see Blacklist in action...
