How to Block Unwanted Calls on Samsung Galaxy Android Devices – No App Needed

How to Block Unwanted Calls on Android 4.0.X ICSYes, you read it right. No app needed. Its there in call settings, at least in all Samsung+Android devices. I remember when I had symbian mobiles(a few years back), I used to have an app called blacklist to block unwanted calls.

Now this feature has been added in Android devices and no 3rd party app is needed to do the task. This feature is not available in HTC devices that means if you have non-Samsung + Android device, chances are less that this will work for you. Simply convenient for the people like me who want to block those ‘unwanted’ calls from customer care.

Where is it in settings?

For Android 4.0.X ICS:

  • Open Dialer > Call settings > Call rejection.
  • Enable “Auto reject mode”.
  • Enter into “Auto reject list” and start adding the phone numbers.

For 2.3.X Gingerbread:

  • Go to settings > Call > Call settings > Call rejection.
  • Enable “Auto reject mode”.
  • Enter into “Auto reject list” and start adding the phone numbers.

This feature is stocked with all Samsung+Android devices. If this is also there on your non-Samsung device, please comment below and mention your device name. Also, If this is not there on your mobile device, mention your device name.
