Drop The Call Before Getting Charged with “Call Restrictor” for Android
Are you on a pre-paid carrier or maybe even one of those carriers that will give you a certain amount of time to talk without charging you? If you are, then you have likely gone over your free minutes a few times. In order to help you a bit, XDA member Quacktop has developed an app that will automatically drop your call before a preset time. This can be annoying but it will likely save you money at the end of every month. Plus, many carriers have bad reputations for having dropped calls all the time, so if you are on one of said carriers, then you have nothing to lose really. The app also has several features, one of which is to let you know about 15 seconds before the call gets dropped by forcing the phone to vibrate.
Please leave some feedback if you liked this app.
Do you have free minutes, like first 5 minutes free, to call to different numbers and do you pass them always? Get this app from the market, you can register your numbers in the app and configure the calling time and it will disconnect before the minutes you registered. The best thing is it will call back automatically. So you can keep on calling without passing more.
It will also vibrate 15 seconds before it disconnects. It works great.
You can find more information in the application thread.
