Manually add a phone number to block

Enabling the Block Unknown Numbers option can prevent genuine callers who are not registered in your contacts from reaching you. If you don’t want that, we suggest that you leave Block Unknown Numbers feature on your Samsung Galaxy off and add the number you don’t want to get in your Blocked numbers list.

To do that, just go the settings of the Phone app just like the steps above, and when you reach the Block numbers menu, leave the Block unknown numbers option off, then tap the green + sign to add the number.
