How to block an unwanted number on Android phone - Tutorial for beginners

By  Goraud Mazanec 2019-07-07 893 0

We all have a good reason to want to block a number. Whether it's a slightly sticky ex, a heavy telemarketer or spam, knowing how to block certain calls or place contacts on a blacklist can sometimes be very useful!

If you are bothered by a contact or number you don't know, you can block it with your Samsung, Huawei or Google smartphone. You will have peace, and you can find serenity when you hear your phone ring. We have all known this e-commerce site which calls you back several times because you did not validate your basket, or to carry out a satisfaction survey on your last order.




So here's a little tutorial to show you how to block a number on Android.

How does it work?

Some smartphones offer the option "Forward to messaging", you will no longer receive a call from the contact, but the contact can still send you SMS messages and you will always be notified of a missed call: the number can leave you a voice message.


If you want to completely block calls and SMS messages from a contact, it is then necessary to add their number to the blacklist. Here is a guide to help you easily find this option on your smartphone, but note that mobile operators often also offer an option. You can also use Bloctel to stop the telephone solicitation.


Note that if the rest of the explanations are different according to the interfaces of the different phone brands, the procedures to be followed are in fact very similar according to the manufacturers. We used a Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy and a Huawei smartphone to cover as many cases as possible.

Block a number

To block a number, the easiest way is to create a contact associated with that number, which can then be blocked permanently. It is usually sufficient to choose the number in question from its call history, then choose "create a contact". Then, or if the number you are trying to block is already one of your contacts, here is the procedure to follow:


● Open the contacts application

● Select the contact to be blocked

● Access the menu (often symbolized by three aligned points)

● Search for "Block numbers" (the name can change depending on the smartphone brand, alternatively "add to the black list" for example)

● Finally, select "block" and possibly choose to report the number as spam


That's it, you now know how to stop being bothered by some of your contacts.
