How to Block Calls on Your Android Phone
If your Android phone lacks an option to divert a contact’s calls to voicemail, check for a Blocked Calls feature. Try these steps to block incoming calls:
- Open the Phone app.
- Tap the Action Overflow icon or the MORE button.
- Choose Settings.
- Tap the Call Blocking item.
On some phones, you then choose Block List; otherwise, you see a list of numbers or contacts that are currently blocked.
- Type a number to block, or choose an annoying number from the call log or contacts list.
You might also see a master control on the Block List screen that lets you banish any anonymous calls, which is a great way to deal with telemarketers.
