How to block unwanted calls on iOS, Android and Windows phone

    So…this is not about how to block robocalls. It’s about how to block a phone number.
    Terrible title. Waste of time.

      Hey Grant, TrueCaller, Everycaller and Hiya can be used to block robocalls with their crowd based data.

      I realize BB10 isn’t on anyone’s radar anymore but it does have this feature built in as well… carrier dependant.

      I miss me some BB10. Moved on to the PRIV. I don’t see the option to block calls anywhere in the settings. I’m guessing this is either dependant on the make of your phone or it’s carrier dependant.

      I attached a screen shot of where it is on my Passport SE

      I loved my Z30. On iPhone now, but at times miss BlackBerry 10. I used to live and breathe BlackBerry when I was at But times change and I need a little more to do what I need to do.

      Zach, I’m curious what things you miss about BB10 and what additional stuff you can do with your iPhone that you couldn’t do with your Z30?

    • Zach Gilbert

      Certain work apps. Some devs are doing an amazing job at replicating social apps onto BlackBerry in native dev, but they still don’t provide the exact same services.

      True.. just curious because I’ve used my wife’s iPad and haven’t found anything earth shattering that my Passport can’t do..

    • Zach Gilbert

      Awesome thanks @chugthathaterade:disqus

      Hey Zach, TrueCaller is available on Windows Phone as well. Cheers!

    • Zach Gilbert

      Sweet! Forgot about that.

    • Fair enough, we’ve adjusted the headline, though all of these tools and features can also be used to block robocalls.

    I use Mr Number and I’ve found it works quite well. After blocking several spam numbers the number of telemarketing calls have dropped off considerably.

    They crowd source your data based upon people flagging calls as spam in their app.

  • Adderbox76

    In your call history on Android (pixel at least) you can long press on any phone number and label it as Spam.

    Wish I could just block all calls that are (Area code) first 3 digits of my own number that’ll take out 90%+ or robocalls
