    How can I permanently block incoming calls from a particular phone number? On the VM website, I've found how to block incoming text messages, but not phone calls.

    Someone keeps calling my number even though I'm not the person they're looking for. I don't want to have to keep answering or declining their phone calls. I'd just like to find the option or listing area, where I can place their number, and automatically reject or block all of their calls. Thanks

    On my phone I can go to Settings > Call Settings > All Calls > Auto Reject

    Enable the Auto Reject mode and then add the number you want to block to the list.

    The only way I've found that kind of does what you want is this: http://androidforums.com/lg-optimus-v/279790-spam-contact.html

    Call blocker apps are another option, but I haven't tried any on this phone. When I used Mr. Number on my Blackberry it would always send numbers from my white list straight to voice mail, so I'm not about to try that again.

    If you know the number, add it to your CONTACT LIST, but set the ringer to MUTE! when they call, you wont even know it, as your phone will not ring... I did this to a telemarketing company that was pestering me! Worked Great!

    Try android market. On the search icon type 'call blocker'. There's several apps to choose from. Good luck.

    go to the app market and get "MR NUMBER" it's FREE and awesome, you can block all sorts of numbers, numbers not in phone book, private, area codes, etc.

    Where exactly on the VM website did you find "How to block text messages?"

    After signing in go to to the Phone, Apps, and More tab.

    On the left go down the column and you will see a Edit Message Settings.

    Click Edit Message Settings and add the number of the phone that you no longer want to receive messages from.;)

    I have auto eject mode enabled for Auto Reject Numbers. I have the number listed and checked and have Unknown checked yet I still receive calls from this number. How can I block this particular number?
