There’s nothing worse than being constantly harassed by someone, whether it’s through calls or texts. If you’ve had enough and want to put a stop to it, there are a few ways you can go about it. One way is to block the number from calling or texting you altogether. Here’s how to do it on both Android and iOS devices.

Another option would involve opening up iOS’s setting application where one finds numerous tools for managing contact info including sending letters or emails as well blocking certain individuals altogether.

What happens when you block a number

When you block a number on your iPhone, Android, or Windows phone, the caller will hear a busy signal when they try to call you. They won’t be able to leave a voicemail and you won’t get any calls, messages, or notifications from them. However, if the blocked number is calling from an app like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, you’ll still get their messages.

On Android, go to Settings > About phone > Change number. On a Windows phone, go to Settings > About > Tap your phone number twice to edit it. Once you’ve entered your new number, tap Save.
