"Who Called Me" app to stop phone spammers and SMS spam /scammers

 

Most people probably know about  Reverse Australia  http://www.reverseaustralia.com/

 

A definite great place to go to check scammers/telemarketers etc.  Not always up to date, but it's community driven, so it needs people to report new occurences.

 

So,  they have an app in the playstore, and I think a similar one for iPhones.

I've been mucking around with it over the past few days, haven't had any spam or scamming sms messages, but I've been imprressed, because today a legitimate sms came up from a company who is NOT in my contacts list, and it reported it, seleting the sms took me to the Reverse Australia website, and I could see it was legitimate.

 

It's configurable to your own requirements, and very easy to understand and setup.

Its a great app, but there is one number blocked automatically that I ned to unblock - do you know how to do that?

The Unblock feature is vague and doesnt seem to work.
