Auto reject numbers on Galaxy S8
alpruett78
Member

I just get a Galaxy S8 after having an S5 with AT&T for years. I can't figure out how to easily auto reject spam numbers. On the S5, I could just hold down on the number and select auto reject. The only way I've found to add numbers to the S8 auto reject list is to actually type in the number. This is ludicrous. Please tell me there's a better way. Wondering if the issue is with the S8 or Verizon.

We know there are going to be numbers that you want to block, alpruett78. There is a little bit easier way to block them. Click the Phone icon, Menu (three dots top right), Settings, Block Numbers, tap the contacts icon next to where you enter the 10 digit number (all the way to the right, just below the Block unknown callers toggle switch). You can then tap on the Recents tab at the top, and you can select the spam numbers from your Recents list. Once you've selected the numbers you want to block, select Done at the top right.
