How to Block Numbers on an LG Cell Phone

By Meaghan Ellis

When incoming and outgoing calls become a little overbearing, or you just need a break, an LG cell phone can be one of the best phones to have. With a built-in call-block feature, you can easily block incoming and/or outgoing calls. The phone has settings that can be accessed with simple navigation. All you need to know is how to find and configure these settings in the phone.

Step 1

Press the phone's "Menu" or "OK" key, located on the keypad, to access the main menu.

Step 2

Locate the "Settings" or "Settings/Tools" icon on the main menu. Press the "Menu" or "OK" button to select this folder.

Step 3

Press the down arrow key to navigate to the "Phone Settings" option. Select the "Security" sub-menu option.

Step 4

Type in your LG phone's security code in the blank form that appears in the pop-up window on your phone. The security code is the last four digits of your mobile-phone number.

Step 5

Access the "Restrictions" tab from the "Security" menu. Provide the four-digit security code again.

Step 6

Select the type of communication you'd like to block–incoming calls, outgoing calls, incoming messages and text messages–in the "Restrictions" menu.

Step 7

Choose "Contacts Only" as the restriction setting for the option you selected. You will then be able to specify the numbers you'd like to block.

Step 8

Type the phone number you want to block when you are prompted to do so. Press the "Menu" or "OK" key to lock in the blocked number(s). (See Warnings.)
