Blocking A Specific Number

To block a number is important to note that the number must have called block or at least I have called you. Why do I say this? Because blocking must be done from the call history, not from the contact list. On the one hand it is good because you can block someone who is not necessarily in your contact list, but otherwise, you can not block someone from your contact list if it’s not in your call history.

Having said this, you have to do is go to phone / calls and hold the number you want baroque.Intermediate a window with several options will appear. Choose the “block number

I already blocked it. IF you want to know if it is blocked you must go back to  Settings / Call + SMS Filter and enter the “Blocked Numbers” and see the list of everyone you’ve blocked.

Finally if you want to unlock a number, in this same part you can do giving the edit option.

I hope this tutorial to block calls and SMS in Lumia will be useful.
