    I have received notification on my Galaxy S7 that I reached the limit on call blocking numbers. I did not know there was a limit. Can someone tell me what the limit is and how I can increase it?

    I know that carriers may limit how many numbers you can block, if you're doing it through them. For example, when I used to be on Verizon, I remember being able to go to my account website and choose up to something like 5 or 10 numbers to block.

    Is this a call-blocking option from within your phone's Contacts app, or is it through your carrier?

    My cell and landline are on Verizon. The landline gives me 10 numbers to block. The cell phone, on the other hand, seems to allow me to block dozens of numbers and was assuming it was the Samsung app that was blocking the numbers and not Verizon.

    Tell us how you're setting these call blocks -- it may help us figure out where the blocking feature is originating.

    From the Samsung original phone app, I would tap the incoming caller I want to block. I would then tap "more" on the next screen which gave me a drop down menu. I would select "add to block list" and then a message would appear that I could no longer add to my block list because I exceeded the limit.

    Here's a similar thread from last year: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...list-full.html. There's no direct answer for your question but there is a suggestion for a 3rd party app that seems to work well.

    Also saw this thread from a few years ago -- it sounds like there may be a limit of 100 numbers on the block list: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ask...-note-4-a.html

    Thank you for your suggestions. The Hiya app seems to work well with Android according to the reviews. I didn't know there was a 100 limit to blocking numbers.
