Reject Calls Quickly With Root Call Blocker for Android
Sometimes you’re in a mood when you really don’t want to be bothered by pesky unknown callers (or for some, even known ones) and tapping the reject call button once the phone starts ringing just isn’t enough.
XDA member ftgg99 has come up with a solution in the form of his Root Call Blocker app for Android.

Features include the ability to select a network reply when blocking the call, block numbers whose network IDs aren’t available, manage your own accept and reject lists and enable notifications for when a call is rejected.
