    I do not want a creepy person to call me. I want to block a specific number from calling me or texting me. My service is from Wal-Mart's Straight Talk phone service.

  • joywilliams4 Oct 12, 2010

    My phone service is Straight Talk; I don't have a US provider as far as I know. When I called to set up the service, I think I was talking to Mexico.



    In call settings, I only have these options: Call Answer, Auto Answer, Auto Retry, TTY Mode, Voice Privacy. Tools has: Bluetooth, Calendar, Memo Pad, Alarm Clark, World Time, Calculator, Stop Watch, Converter, & Tip Calculator.



    This is a case of a creepy caller - I'd like to nip any harrassment in the bud. I can block my number from appearing on outgoing calls by entering zyu and the number. But I can't find any other block options in the owner's book or on the phone.



    It seems there should be a way to do this! Thanks for your suggestions...any more?

    The text message is a really good idea. If he calls yet again, that's how I'm replying! Thanks so much.

Hello there

Request selective call blocking. Contact your cell phone provider (the customer service number is on your monthly statement, as well as on the main page of their website) and ask if they offer blocking on incoming numbers with Unknown or Restricted caller IDs. Depending on your provider, this is either a free service or there is a monthly charge.

Some companies offer call blocking as a centralized network service. Usually, there will be options either to create a list of blocked numbers or to prevent all calls except those from a list of pre-approved numbers. This option may not be as attractive as the others, as your provider may charge a monthly fee for this service, or it may make updating your lists more difficult. However, a distinction is made for calls that are deemed to be harassment or stalking; such calls should be blocked by your carrier at no charge.

YOU CAN ALSO BLOCK UNWANTED CALLS MANUALLY

Turn on your phone and go into the "Main Menu" section.

Go into the "Settings" or "Tools and Settings" section. Look for and press the "Call Settings" or "Security" section.

Go into the "Call Restrictions" or "Block Numbers" section. Look for the setting to enter restricted numbers, block calls from certain numbers in your contact list, or block all numbers except for those in your contact list. Enter or select the phone number you want to block. Save the settings on your phone.


Finally, another option is to use a secondary incoming call number, such as the one provided by Google Voice. Intermediary services such as this one give you a new number and allow you to directly control the circumstances under which each contact's calls are forwarded to your phone. For example, you can set up Google Voice so that only your known contacts call your cell phone, and only at particular hours; other calls may go to your home phone, or straight to voicemail.

Regards..

Hello,

Call your service provider and ask if there is a way to block specific numbers.Your service provider might have a special service to block numbers. Maybe try this...text the person saying "Your messages have been blocked by (state your own number). Message 303." The person will think you blocked their text messages. If they text again, reply with the same message.

You service provider is that one that can help you out with this.

Good luck.

    Hello,

    Click the menu of your phone, go to phone book, scroll to Block list and enter the person's number that you want to block, then save and that would be all.

    I found out that some Samsung phones has that function, but I'm not sure about your model, but you can try it out.

    Take care.

Block incoming text


In iOS 7, there is an update that allows you to 'Block the Caller' this should block Text Messages and Calls from that number. If that does not work, you can reach out to Law Enforcement about the harassment, or your Cell Phone carrier to block that number all together... Best of luck with that.

How can i block a number on a nokia 6500c my service provider can not is there any other way for blocking unwanted calls


The 6500c does not support conditional call forwarding (CCF) which is useful if your carrier does not provide blocking services. I have owned several nokia, a samsung, two LG, and currently have a blackberry 9330. If unwanted calls are a serious problem, consider upgradeing to a mobile phone that supports CCF. Conditional call forwarding can be used to forward any unwanted phone number includeing calls from unlisted, unknown or restricted callers. Depending on where you live, the call can be instantly forwarded to a service, such as trapcall.com, that unmasks the caller in addtion to providing the standard message "This number is no longer in service" for example.
