    Wynnded posted a good workaround idea. Just to expand on it a bit, I found that you cannot leave the phone number field blank. When a call comes in, the caller ID feature on your phone attempts to display a number. When the number is unavailable or restricted, then this is what appears in the phone number field. I found that in order for this workaround to be effective, create your Google contacts (one for Restricted and one for unavailable) with the word Restricted and/or Unavailable in the phone number field. Then follow the remaining steps to add that contact to your auto-reject list.

    Even if I get this to work on my phone the trouble with this approach is that it sends the caller to voice mail. I want to block them not have them leave a message for me.
    Also no one seems to be mentioning texts. I want to block texts from witheld numbers too. Does this approach do that for any of you guys?

    You guys are trying way too hard for a simple solution. Just add a contact and call it Unknown then another one and call it Blocked…so on and so on (Private, Unknown). You don’t have to put in any phone numbers or any other information. Once it’s added to your contact list tap that name and then look for edit (it looks like a little pencil) and it should give you a list of options for that caller. CLICK BLOCK, also

    Download a ringtone that says “silent”and add it to your ringtone list and add that to all of the aforementioned names.

    . Now when anyone tries to call you with that name your phone will not except the call and even if it does you wont hear it, they will get tired of this eventually and quit…your welcome :cool:.


    P.S. If other numbers that come up are suspicious and don’t have the courtesy of leaving a message just add their number to those names and they will be blocked also, you can keep adding numbers to each name under mobile numbers which is unlimited, that means as many numbers as you like…problem solved.
