    Not sure if you can do it directly from the phone (don't own that model) but plenty of 3rd party dialer apps can help you block/restrict numbers. Just look for 'call block' or 'blacklist' in the Store

    I simply make a contact entry called "Spam" and add the numbers to that. Set to automatically go to voice mail.

    Badda bing.

    I just downloaded SyncMe app to sync social media contacts / pics. It also has a spammer block feature, though I haven't done anything with it yet.

    You can add your mobile number to the National Do Not Call Registry (which you should). But that won't stop the telemarketing calls, etc. I've use Call Control for a few years, and it's excellent. You can also use the Lookup feature, but it costs a few bucks extra. I make a habit of not answering calls from numbers that I don't recognize and allow the call to go through to voicemail. If they don't leave a VM, I place the number in my block list and delete it from my phone.

    I use true caller. Doesn't stop them the first time they call but after they call you can look their number up and see who it is. The other true caller users will note spam calls and such and then you can block the number through the app. Been using it for about 3 months and love it.

    Just curious - how many numbers can you add to a contact?

    No idea, but I'm closing in on 20 for the first spam contact. If it tells me I can't add any more, I'll start a 2nd contact.

    My spam "contact" starts with a "Z" so that it's the last contact in the list.
