Block Unwanted Calls and Texts From Specific Numbers (Fongo 3.7+)

Block Numbers From Calling or Texting Your Fongo Number

Fongo 3.7 introduces a new feature that allows you to add phone numbers to a block list. This will make it so that calls and text will not come into your Fongo app from the blocked numbers. 

As of Fongo 3.8, due to popular demand, anonymous calls are blocked by default.
Note: At this time due to a technical limitation if the specific number that you blocked leaves you a voicemail it will arrive in your app.
