Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge tutorial: how to set up call blocking
Most of us have been there. A certain number, be it from a known or an unknown person, is bugging us with endless and annoying calls, disturbing our flow at work or at home. The obvious solution for this problem is setting up call blocking on your handset. If you happen to own a Samsung Galaxy S6 or a Galaxy S6 edge, there are a couple of ways of setting up call blocking and getting on with your life as intended. 

Blocking calls from the contact detail page


In the first section of this article, we'll teach you how to block a contact that you have previously saved on your Galaxy S6 or S6 edge.

Step 1. Go to the phone app, switch to the "Contacts" tab, and find the contact that you want to block.

Step 2. Tap the "MORE" button in the upper right corner.

Step 3.  Select "Add to Auto reject list". You have now blocked this number.


Editing the call block list on the Samsung Galaxy S6


If you want to block a list of phone numbers from calling your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 edge, you don't have to store each one and then block them individually.

Step 1. Go to the phone app, and tap the "MORE" button in the upper right corner

Step 2. Tap on "Settings".

Step 3. Tap on "Call rejection".

Step 4. Here you can add as many phone numbers as you want.

Step 5 (Optional). To unblock calls coming from a specific phone number, remove them from the list.


Block anonymous calls on the Samsung Galaxy S6


Alternatively, there are times when you want to block anonymous calls, as many pranksters hide behind "unavailable" or "unknown" phone numbers. Here's what to do in this case:

Step 1. Go to the "Call rejection" menu inside the phone app on your Galaxy S6 or S6 edge. If you're unsure how to do this, follow steps 1 to 4 from the section above.

Step 2. Find the toggle button for blocking unknown phone numbers.

Step 3. Turning the toggle to on will block all future anonymous calls.
