Tip: Blocking "Unknown" callers

Hey fellow Fido'ers!

 

Just located a way to actually block those annoying "Unknown" calls on my Samsung Gravity (T456). 

 

1.  Go into your call history.

2.  Go into "All Calls".

3.  Locate one of the "Unknown" callers and select it.

4.  Select "Options", should be the left action button.

5.  Select "Add to Block List" or "Add to Reject List".

6.  Select "Yes"

 

Now all "Unknown" callers are automatically blocked.  If it's an important call they can just leave a message in your voicemail, assuming you have voicemail.

 

While this procedure is for the Samsung Gravity, it may also work on OTHER phones.  Just do the same thing, go into your caller list, or missed calls list, and see if you have the option to block the "Unknown" caller, which will then block all "Unknown" callers.
