How to block a Cellphone number?

For privacy reasons, you may want to avoid people knowing what number you are calling from when placing a call from your cell phone. If you want to block your cell phone number from showing up on caller ID when you call someone, the process is very simple. You can block the number through your cellular phone carrier or temporarily on the phone itself..

HERE IS THE INSTRUCTIONS :



1 .Call your cell phone carrier. Dial 611 from your cell phone to reach customer service and tell your provider that you would like to request line block. The representative from your carrier may ask you a few questions, but the process is quick and painless.


2. Dial *82 if you need to unblock your number. Once you have put line block on your phone, you can temporarily take it off by dialing *82 before dialing out.


3..Block a specific call. If you do not want to put line block on your cell phone permanently, you can block your number temporarily on a call-by-call basis.


4..Dial *67 before dialing out to just block that particular call. After entering *67, proceed to dial the rest of the number as usual.

How do i block a number from my pgone


If you need to block your number from appearing on a caller ID, simply press *67 before placing a call. Once *67 is pressed, dial the number as you normally would.
If you want your number permanently blocked you can contact your phone company and have a line block put on your number so that it won't ever show up for any calls you make. If you need to unblock it to make a phone call you can dial *82 before the number and that will allow your number to show up one time only on that phone call. If you want to block your number on a per call basis simply dial *67 before the number and that will block your number for that call only.

blocking numbers on cell phone


Unfortunately, Sprint does not have the ability to block single numbers from calling you. We can either block all incoming calls, all outgoing calls, or both, but not particular numbers.

Stolen phone

The best thing to do is to phone your mobile service provider and report the phone as stolen and they will put a block on the mobile phones IMEI number. You need to do this asap to avoid any costs that may be placed before the block is put on by the provider.

Hope This Helps.
