    I am not able to receive calls from my son. He can text me, but not phone me. I can phone him.
    Can you help please? I’ve looked to see whether it’s a blocked number, but it isn’t.
    Thanks

    What you said to do does not block a persons number. Call reject only makes their call go straight to voice mail without ringing. I want to “block” a person so they can’t call… Can’t leave me voice messages … Can’t text either… How do I do that???
    Plz help, Im desperate!!

    I searched on the Play Store for Cold Shoulder and nothing relevant came up. I know your posts were from 2011 but I would assume that app would still be around. Too bad. The other call blocking apps don’t work right according to lots of people’s reviews. Hopefully my new phone which is coming tomorrow (Samsung Galaxy Centura) will have blocking ability. My current Kyocera Rise doesn’t.

    Great! Thanks for the instructions although my Galaxy phone has the call settings a bit different.
    Click on Phone, then select Logs, then select menu to open a window on the bottom which shows Call Settings, tap on Call rejection, then tap on Auto Reject List and create all numbers you want to block and then tap on Save,
