All of us know that situation, GSM is ringing and if we look at our your GSM-display, there is written „Unknown caller ID“.
So what to do, who is the caller? Why the caller is hiding his identity? In most of these cases, the caller turns out to be a salesperson who want to sell certain goods you’ll never need. Seldom but with raising posibility you’ll be the victim of a stalker, permanently calling you, again and again. The solution is closer than you maybe think…Assuming that you have a Android G1 GSM it becomes easy up from now on. I have developed an application which will take care of calls with „unknown caller ID“. Unfortunatly Google won’t allow us to directly reject an incomming call programatically. But there is a solution. The nifty little application NoStalk V1.4 will just turn your GSM absolutly quiet if a call with „unknown caller ID“ will come to your Android G1 GSM. After the caller dropped the line or (if you configured your GSM that way) is forwarded to your VoiceBox, your GSM will turn back to normal ringing Mode. By that you won’t miss a caller which will call you with a „known caller ID“. In other words, your’e reachable again.
So equal if you are followed by a stalker calling you again and again, or if you often receive calls from salespersons with „unkown caller ID“,
Up from now on, with NoStalk V1.4, your Android GSM will stay quiet if someone with suppressed caller ID will give you a call. You can download the application on the android market.

If you you tab on the link next to the top of this screen you will enter my blog, where you can read this nifty little description of NoStalk V1.4.
I hope that this application becomes in handy for all of you out there. If there is any question regarding the application or its functionality feel free to ask it here. This is the right place for questions and suggestions.
The application is completly written in java, making usage of the public Android SDK features. it consists out of two class files and some configuration files. The application makes use of a feature in Android called „Service“ which means, the application, once started will completly run in background, let you do your normal business. At Starting time, the application will save your preferred settings regarding sound and vibration. Once turned quiet because of a „stalking call“ it will revert to exactly your preferences if the unwanted caller drops the line.
Besides, the application is now capable of multilingual features. This in fact means, all visible parts of the application can be translated to other languages. As of now the application has, starting with NoStalk V1.3, two languages build in. English as the standard language and German as second availiable language. Switching the language happens absolutley automaticly according to the region/language settings you have on your GSM. If your current language is not availiable, NoStalk V1.4 (and above) will be displayed in English.
The actual NoStalk v 1.4 has been written and compiled against Android SDK V1.5_r3
