What is Number Shield? Description of Number Shield 1573 chars
Block annoying scammers who hide behind fake phone numbers.
Do you get unwanted calls or text messages from phone numbers similar to your own? With Number Shield, block an entire group of numbers at once. Just enter a wildcard for each digit you want to block.
For example, if your number is 714-555-1234, scammers might use a number like 714-555-6789. Block all similar numbers by entering 714-555-####. Wildcards and numbers can be combined in any order you choose. Block international numbers, too!
Use the "Allow Contacts" option to make sure you don't miss calls from your family and friends.
Block numbers directly from your phone's missed calls screen. Just follow these steps:
1. Tap the “ i ” button next to the missed call.
2. Tap “Share Contact”.
3. Tap “Block Similar Numbers”. (If you don't see this action, tap “Edit Actions...“ to enable it.)
4. Now you'll see the Number Shield number entry screen. Tap “Done” to block calls from similar numbers.
• Each number pattern can contain up to 7 wildcards, and up to 50,000,000 phone numbers can be blocked.
• Blocked calls are sent directly to voice mail.
• Blocked text messages are sent to the “Junk” filter in the Messages app.
• iMessage messages are not blocked.
• When “Do Not Disturb” is enabled on your phone, calls that should be blocked may appear in your phone's list of missed calls.

Number Shield Pros
✓ It Really Works!I thought it was a gimmick, but we were getting really desperate since we've been getting hammered by spam callers. It was especially bad for my daughter who was getting about 22 to 25 spoofed calls a day. Since we installed this app. My daughter got one spoofed call from another area code that she had not entered into the app, and I have not received any calls at all. This thing really works, get it!.Version: 2.1.2
✓ Exactly what I neededThis app is simple and does its job perfectly and was worth every cent. I get calls from area code-three numbers-different four numbers all the time and this stops them perfectly. Great job. I recommend it to everyone..Version: 1.6.3✓ Number Shield Positive Reviews
Number Shield Cons
✗ Selection rangeWondering if this app literally saves all numbers in the blocked range, or rather uses intelligence similar to refer query based on given criteria. Not sure why the app takes so long to set a range of numbers in that “Blocking Numbers” screen. Wish it was well designed..Version: 3.0
✗ Good but....I have ben using the app for a long while now. Recently the app has been unable to synchronize and throws errors. When you have a large number of blocked numbers the update can take 30min or longer. There is a limitation of 40 million numbers. Would like to have seen a block all except contacts. But when the app is throwing sync errors it does not work. Will be looking at other apps now...:(.Version: 2.1.2✗ Number Shield Negative Reviews
