Just as the topic says... the biggest reason I use avast on my phone is as a sms/call blocker... but they seem to have removed most of it's functionality... WTF???

Hi, as the SMS blocking has become impossible (or at least tremendously complicated) within Android 4.4 and higher, and as more and more users have been upgrading to Android 5 and 6, we decided not to add this feature in the new version. If you want to downgrade back to AMS 4, please send an e-mail to android@avast.com and ask for the AMS 4 apk. However, SMS blocking will only work until you upgrade your OS to Android 4.4.
