@Dopey1 

 

You have to add the number to your phonebook/contacts then > select the contact > menu > send to voicemail.

 

You can also either contact your carrier network and request to block all unknown/hidden numbers 

 

or

 

you can download a call filter app from the playstore

Tap the phone icon on your screen to see your past call listing,  tap the phone number, tap the call details and then you will see "block number", tap it then block the number. That is all.

 

Cheers

Re: How do I block a number on my z5

Hi @Dopey1, welcome to our community!

As @vikingjuice4 wrote, you can block a number directly from the phone application and the call log in your device if you follow his/hers instructions and if you want to remove a number later on from the list, tap the three dots in the top right corner in the Phone application > Settings > Block numbers and tap the little "x" next to the number.

Let us know if you found the setting and/or if you have any further questions! Slightly smiling Face
