    How to block unwanted calls in Android devices without relying on any third party app?

    It is sometimes frustrating when you receive calls from an unknown number repeatedly. I have gone through various apps in the app market but I don’t find anything sufficient to prevent it. Is it possible for me to block calls in Android itself?

    Even though there are a lot of apps in the app market, it is very easy to block calls in Android itself. Open up the app drawer and then go to the settings option. In the settings page just go to the Call section. You will find call rejection option there and just click on it. On the call rejection page, just tap on the Auto reject option. By default it will be set to OFF. On the auto reject mode window, choose the ‘Only Black List’ option by activating the radio button. Then go back to the call rejection screen and then choose the ‘Black List’ option. In the Black list page click on the ‘Add’ option. You can also put check on the unknown option; this will block all the unknown numbers. If the number is on the call log or contact you can choose it by pressing on the contact icon. You can also manually type in the number and hit save. From now you won’t be notified about those unwanted calls it will be blocked.
