What is call blocking??
According to Wikipedia, Call blocking, also known as call block, call screening, or call rejection, allows a telephone subscriber to block incoming calls from specific telephone numbers. This feature may require an additional payment to the subscriber’s phone company or to a third party.
There are all sorts of reasons to block calls: an ex who won’t stop calling, telemarketers who can’t take a hint, scammers,
or an aunt who wants to check in and see why you’re still not married.
Most reasons for intentional blocking are not legit. But do not assume that if it come up unknown that it is blocked. A very small amount of time due to network or exchange errors a callers number or name may not show up. Most often is if the phone subscriber is on another service, or in a different country (Abroad).
I will block my number if I am calling somebody that I do not want someone to call me back on that same number.
When your phone has buzzed one more time than you can take, you know it’s time to block that number. But how? Here are the steps to take by popular operating systems and carriers.
When you block a number personally, their texts go nowhere. The person whose number you have blocked will not receive any sign that their message to you has been blocked; their text will simply stay there looking as though it was sent and not yet delivered, but in fact, it will be lost to the ether.
