Look at your phone records at the end of the month. Some cell phone and home phone providers list numbers that are restricted on the phone bill. Simply note the date and time the restricted call came into your phone and look for that date and time on the print out of phone calls made and received on the bill. The actual phone number may be there.
Have a block put on your phone that notifies callers that you do not accept phone calls from restricted numbers. This will force the individual calling you from a restricted number to unblock his phone number and call you again, if he wants to contact you badly enough.
Install a toll-free number to use on your phone. When you have a toll-free number (with most providers) and only give out that number instead of your traditional phone number, you automatically receive the numbers of everyone who calls because you're paying for the calls that come to your phone.
1 Go to the main menu on your Samsung cell phone. Press "Tools & Settings" or the similar section listed under the first-level menu options.
2 Press "Call Settings" or similar. You will be taken to a list of options for receiving your calls. Select the "Call Restrictions" option.
Under "Incoming" select "Yes" to program your phone to automatically reject all incoming calls. On some models you can also set the phone to restrict calls from anyone outside of your contact list, or only from callers who are on your contact list under the "Call Restrictions" menu.
Well what does it say? does it say restricted or unknown number? if it says "restricted" then the number that they're calling from is more than likely on a list of restricted numbers that the city has... my family's house used to be like that so whenever my parents called it would way "restricted" even though I had "home" in my contact... this is usually the same list that the city uses if you don't want to be listed in the phone book
The person that left the "Solution #1" is incorrect. You can go to a website called Trapcall.com and set your phone up so that you can find out the number of the unknown caller. Unfortunately there is a small fee associated with this feature and it also disables your voicemail. I think it is worth it to have a solution for a troublesome caller.
With this model of phone you cannot block calls from a particular number but you can restrict incoming calls that are not listed your address book. So effectively you can block a caller but you will be blocking all callers that are not in your address book. Having said that, there are other phone models in the market that can block a particular caller by listing the number in a black list.
Call your provider and ask about blocking incoming calls from a certain number, I looked into it and there is no such function in the phone, you can restrict outgoing calls and you can get a accept calls service which only allows phone numbers you select to call you, but thats not really that good of a service, how will new people call you? you will always have to add their number into the list. Better to ask the provider for a call block on a certain number or just keep pressing the busy button or turn the phone off, or maybe use a prepaid sim card for few days so you have another phone number and the caller won't know the number.
good luck, let me know how it turns out,
Hi there.. block the incoming call barring feature. we can restrict incoming calls and
add prefered people who are allowed to call. this feature is present on
most sony ericsson phones.
to enable it go to settings->call
settings->manage calls->accept calls. add the allowed people
phone no.s in the list and turn on the "only from list" you will not get
call from people except one in the list.
