    Number block?

    I have a Samsung R451C with Straight Talk. Is there a way to block someone from calling/texting? It's an ex who won't leave me alone. I don't want to change my number as I have a big contact list and don't want the hassle. Does Straight Talk even block numbers? Thanks!

    On the one and only Samsung I own there is a "block list" in the "phone book" section. It looks like you just assign a number to the list. Whether it works or not I dunno.

    On LG's I own there is an option to set a contact to "no ring" when assigning different ringtones to different contacts. When the "Ex" calls the phone wont ring but you'll get a "missed call" tone at the end. Its better than checking the phone every time it rings.

    Because you want to keep your number Google Voice is not an option but when you block a number with GV the caller gets a "number is not in service" announcement.

    File harassment complaint with cops, get restraining order. Be prepared to prosecute if it continues after TRO issued.

    I know on some phones you can go to security in settings and make it where only people on your contact list are the only calls you get.

    On my phone I set certain numbers to have 'silent' ring. My friends get another ring, and all other calls go to the default ring. I answer the ones which are in my local area code.
