Blocking a number or contact:
This way is probably the easiest.Say you get a call from a PPI number or a annoying friend and want to block that number.Go into the phone application and choose the Call Log.Tap on the number you want to block. Choose “More” in the top right corner, and then “Add to auto reject list.”
That’s it. No muss, no fuss. If you want to remove a number from that auto reject list, just do the same thing and choose “remove from auto reject list.”
Whats in your Auto Reject List
The second way to block calls is from the settings of the phone app itself.From anywhere in the phone app — the dial pad, call log, wherever — choose “More” in the top-right corner, and then “Settings.”The second option in the list should be “Call rejection.”
That’s where we’re headed. So, tap. Now tap “Auto reject list.”From here you can enter a phone number manually, or there are shortcuts to the call log and to your contacts. Any numbers that you’ve previously rejected will appear here as well, so it’s an easy place to remove folks from the rejection list if you want.
How to block Unknown callers
There’s a third option here that deserves mention on its own.In the “Auto reject list” is an option for “Unknown callers.” Toggle this to on and you’ll no longer be bothered by callers who block their incoming number.Be careful with this option, though, as there are are some places of business that legitimately block their numbers, and this could lead to you missing calls from someone you actually want to talk to.
