How to block a specific number with sony xperia z3 compact?

Hi I have been receiving harrassing sms and calls and would like to block this specific number. my mobile service provider cannot block for me. Does Sony Xperia have this inbuilt function?

Hi Jasxteo.!

 

I think you'll find that tere is no "built in" function from Sony on this - and I'm not certain what other phone vendors implement for that, or if they do at all? I know that certain carriers will block numbers for you, and some allow that if you log into their website and access your phone "features".

 

To block messages - try Textra, which has a "black list" option. Textra as well is an excellent messaging application - and is free.

 

There are numerous "Call Blocking" apps in the Google app store - each with their own features and some are free as well.

 

My best,

 

John

Yes there is this function in Samsung phones in their newer versions. Also I really hope Lollipop 5.0 will see Sony Xperia tweaking their keyboard inputs so that EN is easier to type using tap method and EN/CN/JP languages can all be integrated into one keyboard!! My greatest peeve.

You need to download a contact blocker or call blocker or call filter app

Psssssst....  Hi uliwooly.

 

Can I ask - do you actually read the entire THREAD before you reply?  The reason I ask is that the answer (the SAME one you posted?) was already posted above yours?

 

Anyway - with 49,860 posts, I can imagine you don't have much time for actually "reading"?  As for me - I don't know much, as I have all of 30 posts - so what do I know? But as a "newbie" trying to assist others, it's a little discouraging when someone with nearly 50,000 posts come in and quips/cops a reply without actually reading a thread. Maybe I'm in the wrong forum, eh?

 

In my world - this is a USER->to->USER Z3C owner forum to assist other Z3C owners.  I'll keep reading and posting when I think I can add value, as I am "one of them".

 

My best to you - but, really...?

Hi uliwolly,

 

I am very familiar with the "guidelines", but thank your for pointing them our to others who might be perusing this thread.

 

For that, I respect your reply.

 

From my end of the telescope, as it were - us "newbies" (<- my word) and owners of Sony products are here simply to try to assist others. Now - walk a "mile in our shoes"? In this case - I posted exacly what you did - but in many more words.? For that - a little encourgement for the right answer would be a "good thing" to build the mantra of this community - rather the repeating the same thing again.

 

In this case and in this thread - I took a lot of time figuring out how to actually "assist another owner".

 

Anyway - thanks for your reply - I respect it and thank you.

 

John

@JasmineTeo - There is a method that will give you a degree of control over that: Main Menu > Contacts > Tap on the contact you want to block > Edit that contact > Menu Button > Tick the "All calls to voicemail" box. Please be aware that whilst this will prevent calls they will still be able to message you.
