Block calls manually

Most mobile phones already include an auto-reject feature. It allows you to reject any incoming calls and messages to your mobile phone. The manipulation will differ from a mobile OS to another. Here are some guidelines:
  • Samsung mobile: Call log > Call Manager > Blacklist.
  • BlackBerry: Options > Security Options > Firewall .
  • Windows Phone: Setting > call+SMS filter > Block call+SMS.
  • Block unwanted calls on iOS
  • Block unwanted calls on Android


Note that: In the event that you can't block calls on your mobile, you can always assign a special ringtone to an undesired contact. Thus you can easily identify his calls and manually reject them.
