Block a number
Are you tired of receiving unwanted calls from telemarketers and your ex-partner? You have many options to block unwanted calls from Samsung Galaxy S4 owners. You can choose to block individuals or groups of numbers, from unknown numbers to numbers that start with area codes. Here’s how. — Cherlynn Low
- Navigate To Call Settings. Scroll down from the homepage and tap the gear icon in the top right. Select My Device and Call.
- Tap Call Reply and then hit the arrow beside Auto Reject Mode.
- Choose “Auto reject numbers” among the options. You can choose All Numbers to refuse all calls at once.
- Navigate To Auto Reject List Back in Call Rejection
- Click Create. Enter a number or pull from your Call Logs or Contacts by tapping on the icon that looks like a person at either end of the field.
- Click Save at the top right after you’re done.
Repeat steps 4 through 6 to block additional numbers. If you want, you can also refuse numbers from entire cities. Enter the region code in Step 5 and then click Starts with under the Match Criteria option. This function works for US numbers regardless of whether you add a “+1″” to the area code.
You can also add numbers from your contact page or call logs to your reject list. After pressing the number that you wish to block, long-press it and then click Add To Reject List.
There are up to 100 numbers you can block. The numbers that begin with “Starts with” count as one.
When your object of frustration attempts to call you, they’ll hear one ring followed by a disconnection sound. Although your phone will not display the call, you can check your call logs to see if blocked calls are present. This lets you know that your S4 is working hard to keep irritants away. To indicate that it was rejected, a blocked symbol is displayed below the number.
