Detailed Process on How to Block Calls on Galaxy Note 8

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes with a built-in feature to allow you to block incoming calls from specific numbers or unknown callers. You can simply enter the number you wish to block in your call settings. This will allow you to send those calls straight to voicemail without having to be bothered answering them.

However you do need to note that there isn’t a way to prevent a blocked caller from leaving a voicemail. The feature only allows you to block the call from ringing! To add a number to your reject list, follow the steps below:
