You may have received an annoying call or text from an unknown number, and you want to make sure this person can no longer get in contact with you. Blocking a number on Android is simple and easy. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you can easily block phone numbers and contacts from calling or texting you. Let’s get started! Learn How to Block a Number on Android?
How to Block a Number on Android?
The first step to blocking a phone number is to open the “Phone” app on your device. Once the application is open, look for the “Menu” button located in the upper right corner of your screen and tap it. The next step is to select “Call Settings” which will bring up a list of options related to calls. Now select “Call Rejection” and then tap “Auto Reject List.” Here you will be able to see all the numbers that are currently blocked on your device. To add another number, select “+Create.” This will bring up a new menu where you can either type in or manually enter the phone number that you would like to block or search for the contact in your address book if they are already saved as one. Once done, press “Save” and it should appear on your auto reject list.
The second method for blocking a phone number is slightly different as it allows you more control over who can call or text you at any given time. To begin, open up your Contacts app and select the contact that you would like to block (or manually enter their information). Next, tap on their name which should bring up their contact page and tap on the three vertical dots located in the upper right corner of your screen once again.
On this page, select “Block Number” which will prompt a confirmation message asking if you are sure that you want to block this particular contact from contacting you ever again. Finally, confirm by selecting “Ok.” The selected contact should now be automatically blocked from calling or texting you at any point going forward unless unblocked through these same steps outlined above as well as deleting them from your auto reject list if necessary (which can be done by simply tapping on the delete icon next to each entry).
Blocking a phone number on Android devices is easy once you know how! As outlined above there are two methods for completing this task – one through auto reject list and another through contacts app. Both options will help keep unwanted callers away from contacting you ever again unless unblocked through these same steps outlined above as well as deleting them from your auto reject list if necessary (which can be done by simply tapping on the delete icon next to each entry). Now that we have gone over how to block numbers on Android devices, hopefully this has been helpful in ensuring that unwanted callers stay out of reach! Thanks for reading!
