1. Don’t publish your number everywhere:

Some peoples have a habit of writing their numbers everywhere, even on social networking sites, on their websites and all. 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:

Google Play store has the largest collection of Android apps that can show you 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.

You can use TruecallerMr. Number-Block calls, textsWhosCall-block calls, texts and call blocker android apps like call BlockerCall Control – Call Blocker etc.

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 sent to voicemail feature on Android:

This is the most wanted feature available in most of the 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 setting for that contact. There should be an option to enable voicemail option.

If none of this trick 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 ca go for legal action against him/her.
