How To Block Contacts On Samsung Galaxy A32

In this post, we will show you how to block contacts on your Samsung Galaxy A32, to prevent a specific number or contact from making calls or sending text messages to your number. There are a couple of things we want to show you that may be helpful. Continue reading to learn more.

Sometimes there are people that we want to prevent from contacting us for some reason. And while we can just ignore their text messages, or drop the call without answering them, there’s no guarantee that your mind won’t be disturbed. That’s why it’s better to simply not receive messages or calls from those people to have a peace of mind. 

Fortunately, your Galaxy A32 has a feature that’s embedded in its messaging app that allows you to block a certain contact or number. You should take advantage of it and blacklist the contacts you may find bothersome.

Block Contacts with Valid Numbers

If you’re trying to block a certain person, then you can do so using your phone’s default messaging app. Here’s how: 

1. Open Messages.

That number is already blocked on your phone. To unblock it, you simply have to tap the Minus sign next to the number you want to unblock. And that’s how you block a certain contact or phone number. 

Block Contacts with Invalid Number

There are times when your service provider sends you a message containing promotions and the like. Most of the time it comes from a contact that doesn’t have a valid number, so you cannot block it. 

If those kinds of messages seem annoying and intrusive, especially if you keep receiving them at night, then you should change your default messaging app to be able to block them. Here’s how..

1. Launch the Play Store and search for Messages developed by Google LLC.
