    Everyone,

    I have been looking for a way to block callers with the Moto X. I know my Brother-In-Law has a really easy way to do it right from the call screen, but I haven't figured out a way to do it with the Moto X. Anyone figure it out? I'd rather not have to install a 3rd party program, as I figure the software must have a way to do it, I just haven't been able to figure out where it's buried.

    Thanks!!!

    Look in call dialier and call logs/recent calls,tap on number you want to block and tap on three dots in upper right of screen and tap on reject call.

    Unfortunately, that option isn't there in the Moto X Pure. Or at least I am not seeing it.

    I have been messing with it all day, I don't think there is a setting per se. It looks like I can add a bunch of numbers to a "contact" labeled something like junk callers or something and then just set the volume for mute/0. But that isn't really what I am looking for...Plus it could be a pain to manage.

    EDIT: That doesn't work either, as I don't see an option o send a contact to voicemail either. Weird...

    Create a address entry and call it Blocked Numbers, or something like that. You can manually add numbers and also, when a telemarketer calls, add them to the contact. Just make sure while the contact is in edit mode, hit the 3 buttons and select "All calls to voicemail." This works well.

    Yeah, it seems like that's the only way this phone can do that. I'd rather not even have it go to voicemail, I'd rather just block them. I guess this is a way to not have it ring I guess. I wonder why moto /Google hasn't included a reject option.

    Anyone use a 3rd party app that is worth trying, that isn't a battery drain or anything like that?
