    Hi, I am not tech savy at all!!!! Is it true I can not block a cell phone number from calling in to my number? I checked the t-mobile web site and they don't provide that service? What do others do?
    thanks

    No it's not true, exactly. While the call will still come to your phone you can block the phone from ringing on your end. You can "Blacklist" it in settings. At the t-mobile website find your specific model of phone and look for user manual on it Or if you pm me I'm willing to help. The manual will give you instructions on how to do it.

    You can get an app to block any call you want. It will block calls and texts but it will also let you save those calls and texts in case you need them later. Or you can set it to not save them. One of them is Mr Number. They are free.

    Hi, thank you. I don't have a new phone, have a flip phone from years ago, but it does fine for now. Tiapet, if you don't mind I will PM you in a bit. Also, does the person who is calling know it is blocked, or can't they tell?
    thanks

    How'd you make out? Did it work? No, they do not know it's blocked.
