Nokia C2 - how to block numbers?

How can I block a couple of incoming numbers (both calls and texts?) to my phone? There are a couple of people who I don't want to contact me either by ringing or by text!

Hi,

 

With call barring (network service), you can restrict the calls that you make or receive with the device. For example, you can restrict all outgoing international calls or incoming calls when you are abroad. To modify the settings, you need the barring password from your service provider.

 

Menu > Settings > Security Settings > Call barring service

Re: Nokia C2 - how to block numbers?

another method is installing 3rd party applications which enables blocking of unwanted contacts/numbers

Re: Nokia C2 - how to block numbers?

Sorry, but its not possible on your device. You can't block 'selective' calls with the method given by mahayv Technical Expert . It will block ALL Calls.. And for an S40 device like yours no compatible 3rd Party application will be available...

@Tebza55

Nokia C2 is non-OS phone, so apps are not as much as Symbin or other phones with OS.

Re: Nokia C2 - how to block numbers?

yep. such 3rd party call blocker applications can't be written for Series 40 phones as the APIs to access low-level platform features in J2ME (Java) are fairly limited.

Re: Nokia C2 - how to block numbers?

Call barring is operator dependant. You need to contact the operator in this regard.

It's incredible that non-OS  Nokia phones such as C2-01 are not compatible with block list applications and much cheaper phones like Samsung E2121 have this option embedded... This subject should concern Customer Service!!! :smileymad:

Re: Nokia C2 - how to block numbers?

I've ended up in this forum for one purpose only. - To find out how to block unwanted callers on my C2. I am extreemly careful who I give my mob number to, but have still ended up with scam and spam. I am amazed that the phone manufacturers have not realised what a selling point it is to be able to block specific numbers! I will be looking for this in my next phone.

Re: Nokia C2 - how to block numbers?

Use the group feature for your contacts.
Create a group for annoying salespeople and one group for all the other contacts.
Add the number to a contact you want to block and add this contact to annoying salespeople group. Make sure that your other contacts are added to the other group.
In the Settings and signals there is a setting for what numbers calls will be answered for. The default is all calls are taken. Change this by selecting only the others group.
I hope this solves your problem.
