How to Block Numbers on Cricket Cell Phones

By Ryan Mooney

Some devices on the Cricket Mobile Service allow you to block specific numbers from being able to call you. You may want to block numbers on a cell phone for security, personal or even business reasons. When you block a number, that caller can no longer reach your number or leave you voicemail messages.
