One of the easiest ways to block restricted numbers would be to download and install a blocking application such as the Mr. Number app on the smartphone. The blocking feature of Mr. Number is highly customizable and, apart from blocking calls, it can likewise block SMS messages and then make a log history of both the blocked calls and text messages.
Intercepting and blocking calls from private and restricted numbers is one of the strong features of the Mr. Number app. It has the option to block an entire area code or any number that is not listed on the smartphone. The call blocking feature of Mr. Number can also be customized. If the user blocks an entire area code, he has the option to make exceptions to the rule and allow certain numbers from the area. Users can also customize whether to direct the calls from chosen blocked numbers either to voice mail or to drop the call entirely.
The following shows how to download and install the Mr. Number app on an Android smartphone.
