    Is there a way to block unwanted calls on the Moto X Force? I keep getting this same number ring me everyday & it's really starting to annoy me. Been looking on google to find out different ways but none work. How can I block them? Still running 6.0 Marshmallow.

    Try this. From the call log add the number to your contacts, go to the Contacts app, select it, edit (pencil icon top right), three dots top right and check 'all calls to voice mail'.
    doogald and Scott337 like this.

    This is what I do. I called the contact "Spammer ZZ" (I added the last name to keep it last alphabetically in my contact list) and every time I get a spam call, I add the number to that contact as a new phone number.

    +1 to the advice from Javier. I have over 30 numbers saved to one Contact named Spammers and all calls go straight to voicemail. None have ever left a voicemail and I never know they call. Every new spam / telemarketer that calls gets added to that Contact. 👍

    Thank you I've now done this. Hopefully no more calls from them now. They did phone me twice today.

    Number successfully blocked but they still managed to phone me with a different number by changing one digit so have done the same with this new number.

    Is there an app out there that does not allow a blocked call to get to your voice mail? I'm getting spam and unwanted calls from overseas and don't want them to leave a voice mail as it will cost me for the call. All the ones I've tried "block" the call but then allow caller into my voice mail.

    Are you on Verizon? See this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=UqfCtIFD

    Otherwise, I'm sure other carriers have a similar option.

    I'm Consumer Cellular. They evidently don't have an option like Verizon and told me to use my phone. Well, my phone is just like the apps I found - call is diverted to voice mail. That does not fit my idea of call blocking, but I was brought up with your plain old telephone service where calls could really be blocked. I have a feeling that call "blocking" - using an app on your smart phone - is only capable of essentially routing it to your voice mail.

    I'm not sure if the Turbo 2 Dialer app has this option it not. On the Recents tab long press a number. Does a pop-up open with an option to Block?

    I have no idea what the app was called, but I had one a few years ago that would answer the call and immediately hang it up so that I wasn't disturbed and they couldn't leave a voicemail.

    I know that Nomorobo does this for iPhone and is supposed to be coming for Android. However, here is a list of call blocking apps for Android. I don't use any of them, so can't recommend anything in particular myself.

    I just checked my daughter's Turbo 2 (formerly my phone) and the Dialer app does have a Block feature. Long press a number on the Recents tab and there is a pop-up with a Block option.

    Don't have that on my phone unfortunately plus I'm still on 6.0 Marshmallow. Been waiting ages for 7.0 Nougat.

    I'll have to check, but I think her phone is still on Marshmallow also.

    Follow up: her phone is on 7.0 Nougat. I forgot that it's a warranty replacement, so it must have shipped from Motorola with Nougat. If you can't find anything before Nougat hits your phone, you will have Block functionality with the stock Nougat Dialer.

    I read on phone arena (think it was that website) that Nougat is now rolling out the regions with the Moto X Force so I'm hoping I'll get it in the next few days then see if I can block calls by holding down on the contact.

    Yep. For now it seems limited to Latin America though.

    Who knows. On February they said the update for the Moto X models was delayed until May ....

    In the recent calls menu, touch the number (not on the right side, or you will call it). A menu will pop up, select Call Details. You can block the number there. No app needed. You wont get voicemail.

    Don't long press. Just touch the number and you get the Call Details option. In there​ you can block the number. This is a number I recently blocked for SPAM Robocalls.



    You can see the Unblock option here because I blocked it:

    Just tried that & I don't get block number appear. My mum has block number on her G4 but she's on 7.0 Nougat & I'm still on 6.0 Marshmallow. I'm sure the option will appear when Motorola finally roll out 7.0 to the Moto X Force in the UK. Dunno what's taking them so long, getting fed up of waiting now.
