Keep track of the times you get these calls and then call your wireless carrier and ask them if they can block this number from calling you. usually you have to change your number if your being harassed in this manner.

Not accepting withheld numbers


This can be changed under the Phone app then settings if I recall correctly. There should be an option somewhere along the lines of blocking calls from unknown/private numbers.

How can i block a number?


You can block a number from calling your mobile by having the option of setting individual numbers to neither ring nor vibrate your phone, in which case you will still receive the call, but there is no danger of it interrupting you. You can also contact your cell provider as some companies offer call blocking as a centralized network service. Another option is to use the secondary incoming call number, as intermediary services give you a new number and allow you to straight control the circumstances under which every contact's calls are forwarded to your phone.

I changed my number 3 weeks ago because a ex wouldnt stop caling. she has somehow got my number. im with orange and have a nokia 2330 classic. can i block just her number, and also any calls with number...


hi,
i doubt if your nokia came with a call blocking feature, infact most nokias i've seen or used does not come with that feature. However you can download a third party software for that. Just visit mobango.com or getjar.com and do a search for call screening.
Hope this helps and pls don't forget to rate this

How to block a no in nokia 7230????


the question is not clear whether u want to block an out going number or incoming number.
i take that as blocking an incoming number:
u have to call ur network operator and ask them to block certain number. this is the only possible way.

Incoming call blocking


the call must be blocked from the tower in order for your phone not to react to a connection attempt from that particular mobile device number. you can contact your service provider and they may have a work-around or a fix for you.

the easy way though, and the way i recommend as long as you are wanting to block calls and not txt from this number, is to asign a custom ringer as none. this will silence your device and deactivate the vibrate mechanism.
now when that # dials yours, you are not disturbed.

or if ur realy serious just call ur service provider and they can fix u up.

pls rate this fix

Blocking numbers from phone


Call blocking apps let you create blacklists - lists of numbers to block from calling your cell phone. I like using LEO Privacy, it's very safe and makes me free. I always receive some harass calls, I'm really sad for that, until I found this app, I can add them into Blacklist. Love this app, so I recommand this app to you.

Barring Withheld and Private numbers.


Dear ,
Go to this website and register your number. I did my several years ago and I don't get unwanted calls.

Or.... contact the place from where you bought the phone and ask them to block the number.
