I know about blocking unwanted emails. Do anyone here know about blocking unwanted phone numbers? Or is just I need to call the phone service? I did not know if there is a way on the phone (cell phone) to just block unwanted calls, other then just to not answer them.

There are a couple of things you can do. As far as blocking unwanted calls on a cellphone, the only thing you can do is to not answer, but you can also call your phone company and tell them you're received harrassing phone calls.

As for your home service, get caller ID and if the caller has no ID when they call, don't answer. Some phone companies have a block service of sorts that makes them identify who they are first and then you have an opportunity to accept the call or to reject it. You can also call the local company to report harassing calls as well.

I hope this helped.

My local company offers something called "Call Rejection" on my home phone. You dial *60 and then follow the voice you hear. If you dont know the number you want to block then dial *60 right after they call and it will reject the last call that came in. Look in the front of your phone book where it has the list of features and how to use them it will be listed there if yours has it.
