The programmers told how to block unwanted phone calls

Unwanted calls can completely ruin your day, so it's important to know how to block them.

Of course, you can stop answering phone calls or download call blocking apps.

One way to reduce the number of these unwanted calls — block repeated calls from abusive phone numbers.

Most phones have a call blocking feature.

The way to block a number depends on the type of phone.

How to block unwanted phone calls on iPhone?

You can also block incoming voice calls through FaceTime or the Messages app.

Once received call, touch the "i" icon next to the phone number (or contact) you want to block.

Scroll all the way down and select "Block this caller" to complete the process.

If you'd rather just avoid unwanted calls, you can also mute calls from unknown callers.

To do this, go to "Settings", select "Phone" and turn on Mute unknown callers. This option will send calls from phone numbers that are not in your contacts directly to voicemail.

How to block unwanted phone calls on Android?

Given that as Android is open to customization, number blocking may vary by device and manufacturer.

Generally, phones running the latest version of Android can block numbers by selecting the phone number on the contact page.

If you select a phone number, hold it to open the menu. From here, select 'Block/Report Spam' to block the number.

On the contact page on your phone, simply tap the dot icon at the top of the page. Then select "Block Number" in the drop-down menu.
