Yup. Approved all permission requests and yet it is DOA.

I tried this. It's crap and asks for too many permissions and feels like spyware.

I still have the first version of this app installed. It's no longer on the playstore though. DND Services
The app basically just automates sending the sms in the right format to 1909. VERY effective.

Thank you for sharing the link to this app. Although Android Messages and Google Dialer use a common and effective local blocking option, I decided to give it a try, I unblocked all the spammers and one by one complained against them as they arrived to my phone. Like you said, it is very effective in lodging the complaint, but that is as it seems, as effective as it will ever get. The first of the "investigations" that were done was for a "weight loss" sms spammer using an MTNL Delhi ID, the reply they gave "No action taken as this number does not show any telemarketing activity". Case closed. The rest simply have chosen not to respond.

What is the most surprising part was that the number that was receiving these texts and the odd call was my private number, apart from immediate family no one even knows the number. It was after wondering how all of a sudden this spamming started, it dawned upon me, I had registered my Flipkart account just a few weeks ago with it. Hence, Flipkart seems to have directly or indirectly given/sold my number out.

Anyways, back to using localised blocking
