Every Android phone usually has its own way of blocking people. For example, on HTC, you can choose a number from your call history and block it by tapping it and selecting ‘Block Caller/Contact’. If you have an LG, you can find the Call Reject section in the Settings menu.
Regardless of your phone model, you can block a phone number on any Android phone. If you are using a phone that operates on Marshmallow and above (Android 6.0+), here is what you need to do:
- Open your Recents (Recent calls) list.
- Tap on a number you want to block.
- Tap the Block icon.
- When prompted with ‘Block calls and messages from this number?’, choose OK.
If your phone is running on Lollipop or lower (up to Android 5.0), you can go to Call settings, then choose Call Rejection and then Auto Reject list. There, you can add as many numbers as you want to never hear from them again.
How to block a number on iOS
If you want to block a random person you do not know, perform the following steps:
- Open the Phone app and choose the Recents list.
- Find the number you want to block and click the Information icon (the I in the corner).
- Scroll all the way down until you find the Block this Caller line.
- Block the number to never be bothered again.
If you want to block someone who is already in your Contact list, do this instead:
- Open the Settings and navigate to Phone.
- In Phone menu, choose Call Blocking & Identification.
- There, you will be able to choose the number from your contact list and block it.
If you block a person, they will not be able to call you, send you texts or FaceTime you.

This would probably be the shortest instruction in this article. It is very easy to block someone on a Windows phone. You just have to go to the Phone app, choose the number you want to block, hold it down and choose Block from the options that appear.
If you somehow cannot do that, you might need to activate the blocking function first. For that, go to Settings, then choose Call+SMS Filter and switch the option to Block Calls to On. After that, you should be able to block calls without any problems.
