How to block calls? I have looked and cannot find details to do this. I have asked Cortana for help with no success.

    What phone do you have? Is it running Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 10 Mobile? Have you looked around on this site? A quick search for "block" turned up this post, see if it answers your question.

  • Go to settings.
  • At the very bottom, tap "call+SMS filter".
  • Check the "Block calls+SMS" box.
  • Now, go to your phonebook.
  • Long tap the number you want to block.
  • Now, tap "block number..."

And that's how you block a number on Lumia.


For Windows 10 Mobile:

  • Go to Call Log
  • Long press the number you want to block, a few options will appear and one of them is "Block number"
  • Tap Block and Confirm.

The number is blocked.
