We thought we should use this title because most Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus users feel bullied by telemarketers. But you can obviously think of a few other persons, maybe acquaintances or old coworkers who call you more often than you’d like and who don’t seem to understand that you don’t want to hear about them. For all these situations and many others, we have prepared this extremely short guide that will teach you how to find out who’s calling, while the call is in progress, and to decide if you want to answer or not! Below we’ll explain how to avoid telemarketing calls on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus
This guide targets all the calls without hidden number, whose contact numbers are not stored in your agenda. Say that someone calls you, you see the number on the display of your smartphone, but you don’t know who that person is because you haven’t saved that contact on your agenda.
Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus devices have this setting that lets you identify unsaved numbers. It’s right within the Settings menu, at Advanced Features, it is called “Identify Unsaved Numbers”, and once you activate it, you will see the name of that person on your screen. Even if you didn’t have it saved!
How is this possible, you wonder? The answer to this question is also the limitation that the Identify Unsaved Numbers feature has. Samsung can give you access to this kind of information through a partnership with the White Pages. This means two things:
- The contact details displayed on your phone’s screen are the ones registered at the White Pages;
- You can only see the contact details of a caller who has that number registered within the White Pages.
Note – another limitation of this feature is that access to it depends from one carrier to another. If you’ve searched for it at the Advanced Features and couldn’t find it, perhaps your carrier doesn’t allow it. You might want to check that with their customer support.
Otherwise said, the bad news is that you may not be able to identify all the unknown numbers. But the good news is that most telemarketers and other people reaching out with advertising offers are normally registered as a business and will, most likely, have their numbers listed in the White Pages. So, you should really be able to avoid telemarketing calls on Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus.
