I know there is a way to enable call screening on land lines for specific numbers, but does this exist for mobile as well? I know that I can block a number right from my android device, but this sends the call directly to voicemail. I want a specific caller to only hear a busy signal and not be able to fill up my voicemail when calling. Changing my number is not an option presently. TIA!

Which phone do you have and what operating system is on it?

To my knowledge there isn't an app any longer to block calls going to voicemail. On android there was extreme call blocker (no longer blocks voicemail) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.greythinker.punchback&hl=en

All the apps in the Playstore will answer and hangup on the call silently. But seems none can stop going to voicemail.

Besides leaving your mailbox full, or changing your number there isn't much recourse..

You can, of course, flow your calls through a VoIP provider, which allows far more control of calling.
