Re: How do i block a number calling on sony experia z3

Hi @Neil1234, welcome to our forum!

If you want to completely block a number, you will need a third party application, just as @uliwooly wrote as there is no inbuilt call blocking feature in the Xperia Z3.

You can however forward all the calls from a specific number to your voice mail and when this number calls you, there won't be any ring tone played, the number will not show up as a missed call. To do that, open up the Contacts application > tap/create a contact with the number you want to direct to the voice mail > tap the little pen icon to edit the contact > tap the three dots in the top right corner > mark "All calls to voicemail" > Save.

I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face

@Neil1234 

 

I was about to suggest 

 

Open the Phone app > menu > settings > call settings 

 

but then I double checked and ... you will need a third party app to block calls
