How to Block Calls on a BlackBerry Classic: The Quick Guide!

To block calls on a BlackBerry Classic device, go to Call Blocking and touch the desired option (e.g., Block All, Block All Roaming). For a more detailed guide on how it is done, scroll down and read more.

Block Calls on a BlackBerry Classic

The BlackBerry Classic comes with a feature that lets you block all incoming calls integrated into the BlackBerry10 OS, however it doesn’t include the ability to block specific numbers individually. If you wish to block only a specific number, you will have to resort to third-party call blocking apps available on the BlackBerry World app store.

To block calls on your BlackBerry Classic:

  • Open your Phone app and tap on Settings located in the top right (You can swipe downwards from the top of the screen to have the button appear).
  • Tap on Call Blocking.
  • You can then choose what you wish to block (Block All Incoming/Block All While Roaming…)

You can also choose to only allow calls from numbers in your Contact list. If you wish to block a specific number, then you can remove that number from your contact list and it will be blocked as well. Here’s how to use this method:

  • Go to Settings > Security and Privacy > Parental Controls.
  • Turn on Parental Controls and then you can select “Phone calls from contacts only”.
