Contacts+ can automatically block calls and SMS from numbers that were reported as spam by the Contacts+ community, or calls from unknown hidden or private numbers. 

To turn it on, touch the menu button (' ≡ ' on the top left corner) -- select 'settings' (⚙) -- and turn on the "block all known spammers" and "block private numbers" switches, as seen here:
