    First of all, install Mobile Manager App into your Android phone from Google Play Store. Launch the app afterwards and get into the upper right corner for hitting the ‘Settings’ button. Then, press the ‘SMS Blocking’ tab and select ‘Block blacklist’ option. You can then set the notification according to your preference. After that, get back to main page of the app and hit the ‘Blacklist’ option. You can then find a menu on the screen with the options for adding phone numbers to block. Tap the ‘Add from contacts’ option and select the contact you want to block.
