The Samsung Galaxy S9 comes configured with many features that are simply essential to making your smartphone experience the best possible. One of these features is built-in call blocking. This is important to prevent being spammed by telemarketers or preventing calls from certain numbers or contacts.
If you need to block a number from calling your Galaxy S9, we will guide you through the process step-by-step. This will allow you to block calls from hidden numbers and unknown numbers as well. To add a number to your reject list, follow the steps below:
- Open your Phone app as if you were to place a call
- Tap on the three dots located in the top right then tap Settings.
- Tap on Block Numbers.
- You have 2 options here for blocking calls. You can turn on “Block unknown callers” to block hidden numbers from calling. You can also block a specific number or contact from reaching you by entering their number into to the “Add Phone number” field!
- Once a number is entered this window, all future calls will be blocked and sent to Voicemail.
It’s important to note that when a contact is blocked they will be forwarded directly to your Voicemail. This means they can still leave you voicemail messages if they wish to. There is no way to turn this off using the built-in blocking feature in the Samsung Galaxy S9, however some third-party call blocking apps might provide you with this functionality.
