FYI, this feature works on the S4 but it also works on many other Samsung : it's the Touchwiz interface that brings this little plus Android. If you do not have a Samsung, do not worry! You will still be able to block a number by following our How to block a number on Android tutorial.

Block a number sequence

For example, if you want to block an ad number, and have repeated a series of regular numbers in the numbers of these calls, you can also block calls that begin, end, or include those numbers.

Let me explain: you find that advertising calls always start with 0900 (for example), you can choose to block them all systematically. To do this :

  • Go in Settings> My device> Calls> Reject call> Auto reject list.
  • Enter the number or number sequence
  • Click on Corresponding criteria and choose the option that suits you

Block a number from your journal

You can also, if you wish, block a number directly from your call log. Once on the card of your contact, click on the key settings your phone, and choose Add rejection list.
