It is very awkward to reject a call in front of everywhere and every time. I have seen peoples even in my relation got upset with these calls but don't get proper solution to the problem. Here are some steps to block the calls on popular operating systems and carriers.

Do Not Disturb - DND

The first an most irritating calls on phone is from telemarketers, who don't even know what is time in the clock they can even call you in the morning at 6 or 12 pm at night. Blocking these calls will might get some relax to you and your phones from unwanted calls. You just need to send an message from your mobile whatever is your mobile operator. Write a message "Start 0" without quotes and send it to 1909. You will get an confirmation message reply to it with "Yes" without quotes. Yep!! You have successfully completed your blocking procedure, you will be notified soon with a message.

So far, we have only introduced with blocking telemarketing calls on mobile. But what-if any person is trying to call you on your mobile phone continuously. There are different producer for blocking calls on different Operating Systems. Let's get through one-by-one.

Operating Systems

iOS

To block a number that called you, go into the Phone app, select Recent. Find the number and click the I in the circle next to it. You'll get a screen with information about the call and actions to take, scroll down to Block This Caller.

If you're blocking someone in your Contacts lists, go to Settings > Phone > Call Blocking & Identification > Block Contact. That will bring up your contact list, and you can scroll through and select those you want to block. You can also get there via Settings > Messages > Blocked > Add New.

If a number texting you is not on your Contacts list, iOS 10 requires you to add it to your Contacts list before blocking it (tap the number/image on top of the screen > Create New Contact). Then follow the steps above. If you have an older version of iOS, tap the I in the circle at the upper right of the screen, then select Block This Caller > Block Contact.

If you think they'll sneak a peek at you with FaceTime, then go to that app, find the last FaceTime conversation you had with them, and click the I in the circle next to it. You'll get a screen with information about the call and actions to take; scroll down to Block This Caller. If it's someone in your Contacts, go to Settings > FaceTime > Blocked > Add New, and select the name or names to block.

Note that: If you are blocking someone, he/she will be blocked from sending you texts, FaceTime, or voice calls.

What if you got an Android device, with Marshmallow??

Android

For Marshmallow or Nougat, open Dialer, go to your recent calls list, find the number you want to block and select Block/Report Spam. (If you don't want to report the number as spam, you can uncheck the box.) Then tap Block.

For Lollipop, go to the Phone app and select Call Settings > Call Rejection (ouch) > Auto Reject List. Type in the number or search for it, select it, and you're done.
