How to block all unknown calls

2020-01-30, 15:29 PM

I don't see the option in Android 9 Moto E6 Plus to block stranger(unkonow calls.

I tried with 3 different 3th part apps, but unsuccessfully: these apps said to block calls, but in fact the phone was ringing.

How can I block all unknown calls?

Thank you!

Solved! See the solution

Android doesn't have that functionality natively.  You either have to find an app that can do that, pay for a block service through your service provider, or block numbers one at a time with the stock dialer / phone app.

But indeed, as I said, I tried to use three different apps to block unknown numbers: always unsuccessfully.

Could you, or someone other, help me to understand why that function failed three times (always) with 3 different (=all, I presume) apps?

In other words, what wrong settings could I have set to get this result? I rembember to have changed something with the words ID and spam (trying to block unkonwn calls), but now I am not able to find where, in my settings.

I've not had to use the function but the Call blocker I use can supposedly block Unknown numbers,

Note: Here in the UK if you Block and Unknown number Government depts like the DWP/DVLA/ and health service cannot contact.

 

Also even if you block an unknown number they can still leave voice mail so in this instance turn it off for a few days and al lot of them give up.
