Call your carrier and ask them to block the number for you. Or you may use apps to help you block a number. If you are using an iPhone, you can directly block a number in the Phone app or go to Settings>Phone>Blocked>Add New and add the number you want to block to the Blocked List. Here's the detailed guide on that: How to Block Numbers on iPhone and Find Blocked Numbers on iPhone

SOURCE: Is it possible to block

Yes. You simply ring your service provider and ask them to block, that particular callers number, and you will never be bothered again. You may have to indicate why you wish this done, however unless asked, you don't need to elaborate, unless you want to.

SOURCE: How can I block texts

In your mobile if you have options to screen numbers under message settings you can do it . About calls, you cannot do it at your end. Contact your service provider customer care center and report the number to them. they can avoid it. Or they will take necessary steps that it does not happen again.

Bev,
Certain phones do have an option to filter incoming calls and msgs. Your may have one too. Just check the settings under Security. If not then you can download a software "BLOCKER". If you can install it on your device then you would be able to block unwanted calls and msgs. Search google for blocker to be taken to the site for download free.

Hi Kathleen, The link below is a user manual for a BT4500 CORDLESS PHONE.... The answer you're looking for is on page 28 When you enter the block calls list you can also edit or delete numbers you've stored previously by selecting and then pressing to display either and pressing Delete number You must subscribe to a Caller Display service from your network provider for the block nuisance calls feature to work. Charges may apply.

Wish to stop unwanted calls


That can be difficult, since even if the phone itself or your carrier has call blocking capabilities, most of the nuisance callers have many different numbers that they can use to call from, and will simply change to another one if you block one. The best solution is to have Caller ID, and any call that blocks their number, or any number that you don't recognize or expect a call from, simply don't answer it. That is the most effective way to stop the calls from coming, since they will usually move on if they receive no response.

I need to block a number from calling me (on my sanyo katana) is there a setting in my phone or do i have to call my provider?


Hi, on this make and model it is not possible to set up call barring the phone has not got the software to do this, some newer phones can offer this feature but most dont.
the only chance you have got of getting a number barred is by calling your service provider and tell them you keep getting nuisance calls from the number you want banned and tell them to block all calls from this person.

as your phone does not have the software for call barring then this is the only way of blocking a number, you need to call your service provider as they can block it for you, but you need to tell them its a nuisance caller and you want them barred from calling your number.

hope that is some help to you
