Are you tired of receiving unwanted calls on your Android phone? Luckily, there are several ways to block calls and regain control over your device. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to block calls on an Android phone.

Method 1: Using the Phone App

If you want to block calls from specific numbers, you can use the built-in Phone app on your Android device. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Phone app on your Android device.

  2. Navigate to the “Recents” or “Call history” tab, where you can view a list of your recent incoming and outgoing calls.

  3. Find the number you want to block and tap on it.

  4. In the call details screen, tap on the More button (usually represented by three dots) in the top-right corner of the screen.

  5. A dropdown menu will appear. Select Add to blacklist or a similar option.

  6. You have successfully blocked the number! Any future calls from that number will be automatically blocked.

Method 2: Using a Call Blocking App

If you want more advanced call blocking features or need to block multiple numbers at once, you can consider using a call blocking app. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Google Play Store on your Android device and search for a call blocking app that suits your needs. There are several popular options available, such as Truecaller, Hiya, and Mr. Number.

  2. Once you find an app, tap on it to open the app’s page.

  3. Tap on the Install button to download and install the app on your device.

  4. After the installation is complete, open the call blocking app.

  5. Follow the app’s instructions to set up call blocking and customize your preferences. Typically, you will need to grant the app permission to access your phone calls and contacts.

  6. You can now add specific numbers or enable automatic call blocking based on certain criteria, such as spam detection or custom blacklists.

Method 3: Contact Your Service Provider

If you are receiving a high volume of unwanted calls or persistent harassment, you can reach out to your service provider for assistance. They may have additional measures in place to help you block calls. Here’s how:

  1. Contact your service provider’s customer support through their designated channel (phone, email, or online chat).

  2. Explain your situation and let them know that you would like to block certain calls.

  3. The customer support representative will guide you through the process and provide information specific to your service provider.

By following one of these methods, you can easily block unwanted calls on your Android device. Whether it’s using the built-in Phone app, installing a dedicated call blocking app, or seeking assistance from your service provider – you now have the tools to take control of incoming calls and enjoy a more peaceful mobile experience!
