How to block a number on LG

Blocking a phone number on an LG phone is almost the same as when you do it on any Android device that runs on a stock firmware. Some phones, however, may not have this feature especially ones that come from service providers or carriers. But the thing about the number blocking feature in stock Android firmware is that the call is actually routed to your voicemail and when that number sends a text, the message will also be sent to a different location in your phone and you won’t be notified about it. Nevertheless, if you just want not to be disturbed with a specific number calls or texts you, then this feature does the job pretty well. Here’s how you block a number on an LG phone…

  1. From the home screen, tap the Phone icon.
  2. Tap the Menu icon.
  3. Tap Call settings.
  4. Tap Call blocking & Decline with message.
  5. To block all callers with anonymous caller ID, tap to enable Private number.
  6. Tap Blocked numbers, then tap the (+) icon:
    • To block a contact from your contacts list, tap Contacts icon, tap to check the contact(s), then tap DONE.
    • To block a caller from the Call log, tap Call logs, tap to check the number(s) or contact name, then tap DONE.
    • To block a number manually, tap New number, enter the number, then tap BLOCK.

If you want to unblock a blocked number, here’s how it’s done…
