Sometimes you get unwanted calls from your mobile, no matter which mobile device you use. Sometimes you get unwanted calls from telemarketing companies to use their service. Most of the time, we think we should block such numbers so they will not harass you again.
A few methods are available to block such callers, and specific mobile apps are also available for Android. Here are a few methods by which you can prevent your numbers from spammers.
How to block numbers & Unwanted Calls on Android
1. Don’t publish your number everywhere:
Some people habitually write their numbers everywhere, even on social networking sites and websites.
Also, don’t use your phone number for websites that are likely to spam your number with auto-diallers or telemarketing schemes. Don’t share your contact numbers with everyone if you do not know him/her personally.
2. Use Caller Identification Android apps:
The Google Play store has the largest Android app collection that can show who is calling you. Some of the apps have call blocking options, so whenever you see the details like spammers, you can directly block numbers & calls from that apps. So it will automatically block next time and not annoy you further.
I personally use Truecaller to Block Phone Calls from Telemarketers. You can also do the same using that; check out the video below that will help you.
3. Use the sent to voicemail feature on Android:
This is the most wanted feature available on the latest android phones. This trick would not work for private/unknown numbers. However, you can use specific numbers to block with this trick.
Suppose you know the Tele caller number is +91-842235122. Like this, save it and go to set for that contact. There should be an option to enable the voicemail option.
If none of these tricks works, you can call your service provider & tell them to block a specific number. If still, you are getting calls from a specific person, you can go for legal action against him/her.
