sprint phone -block an incoming call

by kateh681 / July 28, 2005 5:25 AM PDT

Hi,

I have a sprint phone.

I am able to send and recieve most calls with no trouble, however there is one person that I am able to text message, but unable to call. When I call the same # that I text, I get a recording saying that the # is inaccessible.

I know how to block a #, but can you block an incoming call? Is this what's happening here?

If not, any ideas on how to troubleshoot the phone? I was on the phone with sprint for hours last night, but they told me that my problem "wasn't possible."

I'm hoping cnet readers can do better.

Thanks for your help.

I've been receiving a call from "stalker". I don't really want to change my number. Can you show me how to block an incoming call to a sprint cell?

by DosZap / September 13, 2011 8:28 AM PDT

Just refuse to answer it, or do like I do, answer, and immedaitely disconnect.Say NADA.
Sooner or later they will tire of that game.

block cell calls in
by josh301 / October 20, 2008 3:32 PM PDT

Try using call fwd feature for a few days. fwd the number to a 555 number, dominos pizza, police, etc. they'll get the hint! otherwise for some phones there is call block software out there.

Call Block with Sprint

Sprint does not have this service. Your best best is to install the call block program if you have a PDA or smartphone.
If regular phone though luck...
