Blocking a mobile number is a very simple operation to carry out, no special technical skills are required as, most of the time, you can act directly through the native features of your smartphone. How do you say? Are you new to technology and would you like my help? All right, don’t worry, let’s get started right away. Have a good reading.
How to block a number on Wiko
The first solution I want to propose to you to block a number that bothers you is to use a native application that is present on your Wiko mobile device: Telephone assistance.
Through the use of this application free and pre-installed inside your Wiko smartphone, you can add a number to the blacklist that contacts you too insistently. This application itself is very simple to use but still don’t worry because in the following lines I will explain step by step how to use it to block a number.
From the moment your intent is to block a number on Wiko and you intend to use the native application Telephone assistance the first thing you need to do is launch this application to find out how to use it. From the main screen of your device, then tap on the named application Telephone assistance; this application features the symbol of a smartphone and also the Wiko logo.
Once you have started it you will find yourself in its main screen which will show you the optimization status of your device. Aside from its many features that I won’t tell you about here, what I’m sure you might be interested in is functionality Blacklist. Consequently, tap on this wording which it presents the symbol of a prohibition.
Once you have started this tool, the first thing you need to do to use the feature is to tap on the tab named Blacklist so that you see the button with the symbol (+). Now tap on symbol (+) and via the screen named Add blacklist you can choose some options relating to the number to block.
The wording Call log It will allow you to view the list of calls received and made with your device in order to add to the black list and therefore block a number that you have called or that has called you previously.
If, on the other hand, you will tap on the wording Contacts you can add to the black list the number of a person present in the address book of your device; the wording SMS, instead it will allow you to choose a number to block by viewing the list of SMS received and sent from your device.
If, on the other hand, you want to manually type the number of the person to be blocked to add it to the black list of this application, you will then have to press on the wording Manually add to blacklist.
Done? Very good! Keep in mind that, by acting in this way, you will be able to display a text field on the screen through which you can freely type the number to block and, to confirm this operation, you will have to press the button OK.
The added number will be blocked through the backlist functionality of this application; also keep in mind that you will be able to see the list of all blocked numbers through the section named Blacklist which is present within the application.
Furthermore, if you have changed your mind, you can at any time, through the section Blacklist application, remove a number from the list of blocked contacts. To do this, just press the button Remove which you will see in correspondence number added to the blacklist.
Also, I would like to point out that calls received from blocked numbers are displayed in the section Who loves of this application.
If, in addition, you want to take advantage of the other features of this application to block a number then tap the button with the symbol of a gear which is located at the top right.
Through the section Setting you will be able to see options relating to the possibility of blocking an empty number (Block blank number), the ability to receive a call notification for blocked numbers (Show block notification) and finally you can also use this application to block unknown numbers (Block unknown number).
To activate one of these additional features or even both, just move from left to right (and then from OFF to ON) the lever in correspondence with the words I just told you about.
On your Wiko-branded Android mobile device there is also an additional feature relating to the ability to block a number by forwarding all incoming calls from a specific number to the answering machine. This particular feature is in fact a native feature that is present on many Android devices, so it could also be present on your Wiko smartphone.
From the moment this feature is present on the Wiko device I own, I will talk about it in detail explaining how to use it but, before doing this, I would like to point out that the prerequisite of requiring that the number to be blocked has been added to the list of smartphone contacts.
Once this preliminary operation has been carried out, you will have to tap on the app Contacts to start it and then identify, through the internal search engine, the name of the person to be blocked.
Then tap on his name to view the contact card and then tap the button with the symbol of a pencil. At this point, tap on the menu button which is what the three dots symbol, and then, from the drop-down menu that you will see on the screen, put the check mark next to the wording All calls to voicemail.
Doing this will ensure that calls to the number you have selected are blocked as they will automatically be diverted to the voicemail.
Another native feature related to call blocking that may be present on your Wiko smartphone is the possibility of activating call blocking directly through the dialer, that is the application that presents the symbol of a telephone handset and which is used to make calls and to dial telephone numbers to call.
To use the function in question you must first tap on the dialer app, that is the one with the handset symbol which is located on the main screen of your device. At this point, tap on menu button which is what the three dots symbol and is located in the upper right corner.
From the drop-down menu that you will see on the screen, then tap on the wording Settings and then on the voice Call account. Now you will have to tap on the name you set as the calling account for your phone and you can then view the section on the screen Call settings.
Through this native feature of the dialer of your Wiko smartphone you can tap on the menu item Call blocking and carry out some procedures of greater impact relating to the possibility of blocking All outgoing calls, All incoming calls or even the International outgoing calls.
As you can understand, this is a more drastic procedure which is related to the total blocking of calls. This feature, in fact, does not have the possibility of blocking a single number but only completely blocking all calls.
