How to Block Calls From a Sprint Cell Phone
If you're being plagued by calls on your Sprint cell phone from an unwanted caller---be it a telemarketer or an annoying acquaintance---you can block these calls. Although Sprint does not currently offer a call-blocking feature, there's an easy way to restrict the calls you receive. By updating your phone's settings, you can avoid unwanted calls.
Make sure the number you want to block is listed in your phone's contact list.
Navigate to the "Settings" menu on your phone. Refer to your phone's user manual if you cannot locate this menu.
Scroll down the Settings menu and click on the "More" option. On most phones, this is the last option listed under the Settings menu.
Locate and click on option 10, "Restrict and Lock." There will be several options listed here, but the one you want will be labeled "1. Voice."
Click on the Voice option. Depending on the model of your phone, you may have to enter a lock code---this is usually the last four digits of your phone number.
Click the "1. Restrict" option. Then select "Incoming Calls."
Navigate through your contacts list to select the number you want to restrict.
Tips & Warnings
- If needed, you can also choose to restrict text messages. To do this, select the "SMS Messaging" option listed under the "Restrict and Lock" menu.
- If you believe you are being harassed by a specific caller, you may want to file a report with the police department. See Resources below for information on your privacy rights and cell-phone harassment.
