Many users still wonder if there are ways to block calls on Android. Sometimes we don't want telemarketing calls, but sometimes we really want to block a person. The answer is much simpler than it sounds. In this article we show some simple methods to perform this procedure.
Block or add a contact to the block list – Motorola, Sony, Pixel
There is another alternative to block contacts on Android devices. If you want to block a number from your contacts, follow these steps:
Go to the call history and look for the number you want to block;
Tap on the number and a menu with options will appear;
Select "Block Number" or "Block / Report Spam";
Again, select "Block".
After the desired number is added to the block list, that contact will not be able to terminate a call to your number. This list can be accessed from the call history itself in the three-point menu at the top. Select "Settings" and look for "Call barring" or "Blocked numbers".
This function does not notify the user of any action performed by the "unwanted contact", unlike the previous procedure.
Block or add a contact to the block list – Asus
To stop receiving more calls from a number on your Asus smartphone, just follow the steps below:

Search for the contact you want and click on it;
From the three-point menu next to the pencil, choose "Add Block List";
Go to the phone app, and in the "Ringer" area go to the three-point menu choose "Call Settings";
Select "Block calls and Decline with messages";
Touch "Blocked numbers" and then "+";
Choose where to come from: Contacts, Calls or New number;
If necessary, enter the number or select the contact;
This is the quickest solution, but the mailbox sends a notification every time a call from the selected contact is forwarded to voicemail, and you may have to pay to hear and delete the message, making the insistent icon on the bar disappear. of notifications. In any case, the call will not be viewed by the user.
Block contacts through an app
Rather, a warning: Call blocking apps promise the functionality described above in the Play Store. However, because these apps have access to your contacts and the phone app, they should be used with caution. Developers can use authorizations to call expensive service numbers. They can also use their friends' contact details commercially. It is much better to use one of the methods described above.
Call & SMS Blocker – Calls Blacklist
It has simple interface, not very careful, but it does what it needs to have done. It has blacklist for calls and SMS, block log, white list for phones that should never be blocked and a function to schedule a time to be activated and deactivated (and days of the week also, in the paid version).
