Thank you for this! My phone's had near sixty calls from one number in the last month and when I pick up, they hang up almost instantly. Super helpful!

This is not BLOCKING really. All it does is redirect them your voice mail. They can still harass you by flooding your voice mail inbox. True blocking is when they call, the phone either rings indefinitely on their end (preferably), or they hear a voice prompt telling them the number has been disconnected or no longer in service.

+Roger What's the way to truly block a number?

I've tried checking the 'unknown' tab and I still receive calls from numbers that are not in my phonebook contacts. I don't know what else to do. I want to bar numbers from calling me that are not in my contacts list. Samsung fails again!
Addicted2Water1959 (3 years ago)
This does not block the call, it just mutes the ringer for that number so you don't hear their incoming call... They can still leave a message..
jerseygirl1125 (2 years ago)
+Addicted2Water1959 so is there a way to block them completely so they cant leave me a message too. Husband's ex wife loves to call an harass me
Mike 1969 (3 years ago)

rminitials (3 years ago)
This is good and all but this wont actually block them. Maybe from having your phone ring but they can still leave you a voicemail. Which doesnt help much.
Kathy Hafferman (3 years ago)
will it block a text as well as a call?

WaitingxInxSilence (3 years ago)
Thank you so much for this!  I've been getting harassed by I guy I met months ago calling me late and night and super early in the morning. Sometimes when someone can't take no for an answer, the most stress-free way is to cut all ties.

J Liew (3 years ago)
They can still call me?? :( Btw, what's the use for the option below the number in the list for? ("Exactly same as", "Starts with", "Ends with", "Includes")
afrosamuraiwarrior1988 (3 years ago)
+ITJungles what shall i do if the number is unknown? Thanks for your time and i hope to hear from you
ITJungles (3 years ago)
No they can't call you. You can set the SMS block too if you like. The other options are like a wildcat option. For example, if an advertisement company keeps calling you, they might have different phone number at the end, but the first few numbers are always the same. So you can block that whole company from calling you. For instance, their may have multiple numbers: * 9240 7701 * 9240 7702 * 9240 7703 * 9240 7721 You can block any phone number that starts with: 9240 77.

The overseas telemarketer is still calling. Blocked the same number over and over. They phone about 8 times a day. Sooo frustrated!!!
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Is it from the same number or different number? You can block it using wildcard. For example if the number begins with 84532... Then block any number tat begins with 845*.

im using TU-GO through wifi.. as no network in my area. and the blocked nums can still ring 
ITJungles (4 years ago)
You are welcome.
Mechelle Dillon (4 years ago)
Ok thank you ill try that
ITJungles (4 years ago)
I can see that you can still block the number using Tu-Go services. http://goo.gl/FH8AB5. Check to make sure you following the correct instruction. also the the call log, you could use the menu to add the number to the block list. Let me know if you need further instructions.

Why still can call me?
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Please check your settings to make sure you have set it correctly. In your call history simply select the call then tap on the menu, there should be an option that you can add it to the block list.
Rachel Han (4 years ago)
Thank you, how can you block the entire area code? I'm getting many scam calls starting with weird area codes and I want to block them all

stevechambers500 (4 years ago)
I did this but for some reason the number I blocked can still leave a voicemail. what is up with that?
ITJungles (4 years ago)
They can always leave voice mail because the call is block at the phone level, not the network level. When the phone blocks the call, they just leave voice mail on the network. Just simply ignore voice mail from that person.
Ashley Ortiz (4 years ago)
Same here:(
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Yes it will just go to voice mail.
robertloera01 (4 years ago)
Haha thanks man!!!!
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Cool, no problem.
Shelly Joe (4 years ago)
An easier way is to just go into the call log and hold down the number for 2 seconds and the option will appear. 
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Yes there are multiple ways of doing the same thing. Thanks for the comment.

Cheree Johnson (5 years ago)
Does it block them from texting you too
ITJungles (5 years ago)
It can only block on the phone level, this would mean the phone is not picking it up and the call then would be pass to voice mail. I guess what you can do is turn off voice mail if you don't use it.
