For those who recently owned their Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus, you may want to know how to block calls coming from unknown callers or particular individuals. You may have various reasons for wanting to block calls on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus, particularly since more and more telemarketers and spammers will usually contact people on their cell phones now. Samsung terms call blocking as ‘’rejection’’ so I’ll use the term interchangeably with ‘’block.’’ Here is how you can block calls on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.
Blocking calls from all Unknown callers on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus
One of the major issues that face the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 owners is the strange calls from unknown numbers. The best way to deal with these calls is by browsing to the ‘’Auto reject’’ list. Pick the option of blocking all calls from ‘’Unknown Callers’’ on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus. Just switch the goggle ON and say goodbye to callers who hide their incoming number.
Blocking calls from an Individual Caller on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus
In this method, you simply go to the Phone app of your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus to block an individual contact. Press on Call Log and pick the number you wish to block. Select ‘’More’’ from the drop-down menu on the top right corner. Then press ‘’add to auto reject list.’’
Blocking calls from the Auto-Reject list
Another common way of blocking calls on your Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus is by going to the Phone app itself. Then select ‘more’ from the drop-down menu at the top right corner of your screen then tap on ‘’Settings.’’ Select the second option in the list which should be ‘’Call Rejection.’’ Press on ‘’Auto Reject List.’’ Once you are there you can enter the phone number contact you wish to block manually. Moreover, if you have recently blocked anyone, the contact shows up here as well. So it’s also the point where you remove folks from the rejection list if you so wish.
